Our Sleeping Beauty

Our Abbie has many sleeping positions and it is always funny to look over and she how she has contorted her little self for sleep. 

Freshly Made Sketches - Father's Day

We are celebrating Father's Day a bit early since my daughter is attending the One Direction concert tomorrow ( OMG!!! - imagine thousands of teen girls high pitched screams).

 I looked to Freshly Made Sketches this week for a clean and simple sketch. Masculine cards are always tricky for me especially CAS ones. I tend to distress many of my masculine cards but I refrained from doing so on this card.

I hope everyone enjoys their Father's Day celebrations tomorrow.

Ink - baja breeze
Paper - Comfort Cafe DSP, not quite navy, whisper white and summer starfruit card stock

Mojo Monday - Graduation Card

Ahhh, finally a moment to stamp. Abbie is being puppy sit by Megan and I was able to get to my closet to create a graduation card for our neighbor. I have a few more to make and will probably mix up the papers and use this same great layout from the Mojo Monday blog.

I have used the new DSP Floral District along with the new stamp set Blue Ribbon. I think this new stamp set will have many applications and be used quite a bit. Check out the new catalog for all the exciting new products.

Stamps - Blue Ribbon
Paper - Floral District DSP, tangerine tango, whisper white, daffodil delight card stock
Ink - Rose Red, Tangerine Tango
Accessories - Daffodil Delight stitched robbon, brights buttons, white bakers twine.

Introducing the Newest Member of the Family - Abbie

Here is the newest member of the Bilbao family - Abbie. We just picked her up today and have been so excited to bring her into our home. I will admit, however, that we are all so tired and now remember what it is like to have a little one around the house - A LOT OF WORK. She is such a cute and sweet little 8 week old girl. She is an English Creme Golden Retriever and has coloring almost like a polar bear with white fur and a black little belly and skin.

We are crossing our fingers for a good night tonight and successful potty training. - WOOF!

Speaking of Woof! Here are some bags I created to give to her parents using MDS. I got the idea from SU demonstrator Michelle Suit to print directly on the bags using my printer. Another great MDS project.
