Yesterday was a rather gloomy day I must say. We got lots of heavy rain in the early evening, but fortunately around 6 o'clock it stopped. One of those rains that is horrible enough to ruin rush hour but then lets up right as you finally get home! LOL!
Well Izzy and Melaina had the best time again yesterday. The resumed their game of peek a boo through the house door. It was so, so funny! And then they fought over the portable high chair. I have never seen two kids who wanted to both sit in a portable high chair as badly as the two of them. Both of them kept eyeing it and would ask me to put it down on the ground for them after Melaina ate. It was crazy! LOL! I mean we have kids chairs but no way would they prefer to sit in those. Speaking of chairs, I had the cutest picture all lined up and then my battery died! I was so, so disappointed! Whenever Melaina is over, I put her down for her naps in our pack and play. Well, I have discovered that if I take the cushion out of our chair and a half, it is almost the perfect size for the pack and play and is the same thickness as a mattress. Melaina sleeps so much better with it in there. Well, I still had it out of the chair when the two girls got up and with it missing it makes it just the right height for them to crawl in and out of. OMGoodness you should have seen them sitting together up in that chair! It was adorable!!! They were both laughing at each other and trying to comb each other's hair! Darn that camera battery! LOL!
Well, it is the moment you all have been waiting for!!!! Drum roll please?? Day two of Pink Cat Studios new release that will be available starting tomorrow!!! How awesome were yesterday's sneak peeks? I literally fell out of my chair when I saw the beautiful creations the other DT girls made! I am telling you, there is a whole lot of casing that will be going on now! LOL! Today I have some peeks of the second set of baby stamps that will be released. This set features our little Sweet Pea doing all kinds of adorable activities and includes some great sentiments. And like the dress up set, offers the option of making Sweet Pea a boy or girl!!
So for my first card, I decided to make a little girl card for a super girly girl who loves flowers! I think it is the fact that spring is just around the corner that really inspired me on this one! LOL!
Isn't Sweet Pea adorable!!! How cute would it be to use her and the Enchanted Lily sitting on a mushroom with a lady bug to do a birthday card!!! They could be sisters or could be a how much you've grown card! OMGoodness that would be fun! Sorry, I got a little too excited there, back to my card! I started this card by stamping the adorable Sweet Pea sitting on a flower from the new Sweet Pea Plate 2 by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored her in using my markers. I then cut her out using my nesties along with yellow, pink and blue card stock. Following SCS sketch 190 as a guide, I layered on yellow, pink and blue card stock along with some DP from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection. To make them look like flowers, I placed primas with brads in each center and attached some green ribbon to make the stems. For the sentiment, I stamped the "baby girl" also from the new Sweet Pea set on blue card stock and again on white, colored in my butterfly and popped it off the blue! A little girl's garden card!
My second card for today is all about the little cowboy in your life! So without further ado, I introduce Cowboy Sweet Pea!
The little hat and bear with the star just send me over the edge! I want to pinch their little cheeks they are so adorable!!! Well, I started this card by stamping Sweet Pea as a cowboy from the new Sweet Pea Plate 2 from Pink Cat studio on white card stock and colored him in using my copics. I then mounted him on some blue and rust colored card stock and distressed all the edges with some close to cocoa ink. Using the Mojo Monday 76 sketch for the layout, I layered on cream, rust, and blue card stock along with DP from Basic Grey's Boxer and some Bandanna paper from Michaels. I then stamped the sentiment also from the new Sweet Pea set on white and mounted it on blue card stock I cut out with my nesties. To complete the card, I distressed my sentiment with close to cocoa ink, added a piece of twine to make a lasso and glued on three star buttons to the corner! Yee Haw what a fun little card!
Now it is time to check out the awesome DT's creations! I don't know how they keep getting better but they do!! They are just amazing!!!
