great expectations...

There's a few babies headed our way around my place. Some already just arrived, some awaiting arrival.. many expecting mama's to be.
Two boys, one girl and one unknown(to me). Many baby showers to attend..some missed(by me). I made this for the sweet little girl. I must give it to my guy to give to the proud papa at work...I was so exhausted the weekend of the shower; we are putting in  a fence and I've learned two things: it takes forever, and its a lot of work! It will end soon(I hope) and life can get back to normal and I can create and blog to my hearts content!
I kept this one sweet and simple. Made a little baby buggy.. stamped some images on some Melissa Frances papers.. in fact, all the papers used here are Melissa Frances.. How I love the sweet, soft femininity to her lines.. A PTI die cut edger, a perfect spot to tuck in a gift card for the parents and baby.
Just my luck, over at The Shabby Tea Room the challenge this week is baby related. Hooray! A post and a challenge to enter. Won't you take a peek and join, there's still some time left. I'm off to post and look at the other fab entries.
Thanks for stopping by tonight,
Back again soon,

all's quiet on the {northern} front...

It certainly has been quiet here hasn't it. I decided to take a break...was lacking mojo and motivation to create. That, and the fact we had a recovering pup(routine surgery) and a couple days where I was so sore from digging and planning my veggie garden.. a break was just what the doctor ordered. Good for the soul.

The weather of late has finally taken a turn for the better! We are enjoying lovely warm, sunny days.. it certainly lifts my spirit...the outdoors is calling me..the pup and I can finally head out on walks while my guy is at work. Summer has decided to make an appearance; and not a minute too soon! Barbecues, nights around the fire..swinging in a hammock in the shade..trips to the lake..catching up on reading.. I can't wait.

Just a few cards..rebuliding my stockpile. Deciding not to 'reinvent the wheel', going with patterns and layouts from before..

enjoying creating..

fingers contentedly working with familiar bits and bobs,

nothing new..just multiplication..

Sometimes quiet is just what I need....
