A Little Mommy!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today is just beautiful out!! Slightly colder than earlier in the week, but very sunny and nice. Izzy and I have been outside for a little bit, we had to take the car in for its estimate then we made a pit stop at Michaels. That was a lot of fun. I got another new EK Success border punch that I will hopefully be trying out in the next couple of days. I am really looking forward to that. Poor Izzy is slightly under the weather again though. She has the sniffles and a runny nose but hasn't let it slow her down. I think she is just enjoying soaking up the sun! However, poor baby, yesterday she basically went until she just couldn't go anymore. She finally grabbed one of my chair pillows and the arm rest cover and laid down in the middle of the kitchen floor! It was so, so cute!! She kept saying, "Izzy night night. Izzy night night." She is just too cute! Here is a picture of her just before I put her down for a real nap! LOL!

So I am still trying to slowly play catchup this week. Hence the late post and only one card. I will be glad when everything gets back to normal and I can get back on my regular routine again!! Well, yesterday I was going through my stack of prestamped images that I have been lucky to received from my wonderful friends when I came across this adorable Sarah Kay image. Izzy has been really into babies lately and pretending to take care of them so it just struck me as the perfect little mother's day card image. I decided to use this week's SCS Sketch Challenge for the layout.

Isn't this the sweetest image ever!!!! Izzy loves to pretend feed her little babies although it was a tough go there for awhile trying to convince her that they didn't need real food to eat! LOL! Anywhoo, I started this card by coloring in Picnic Time by Sarah Kay for Stampavie that my friend Jessica stamped for me and colored her in using my copics. I then mounted her on some red, teal and black card stock. Following this week's sketch challenge layout, I layered on red, black and teal card stock along with some DP from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie. I know you were supposed to use two different kinds of paper for the stripes but I tried that and I didn't feel it looked as good! Next I distressed everything with a sponge and some Close to Cocoa ink. I added some buttons to the top corner that I just received in the mail from my good friend Jacquie and finished the card off by punching out a teal ribbon tag using my nesties and stamping "mother" and some flowers in the middle. I really hope my mom will like it. It reminds me so much of my Izzy!

Well that is it for me today. If I haven't been by your blog this week yet, I promise I will be there! My google reader is insane right now! LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by and hanging in there with me! Have a great rest of the day and lots of smiles!

What a sweet little doll baby!! Aren't they the sweetest when they are that age!!!

Your card is beautiful. I love the colors and that sketch really works with the image. Very cute!!

I'm sorry about the trouble that you had at your house. I wish people would think before they act, but they don't sometimes and we're left to clean up their mess.

Big Hugs to you,

Janna, gorgeous card!!!! I can't get over your coloring, really!!! I know I sound like a broken record, but I just can't get mine to look right. Oh, don't you just love those moments when your kid/kids just are so pooped that they fall asleep anywhere? Girl, I could tell you some stories and show you some funny pictures:D:D.
I saw the EKS punches the other day when I went to Mike's but did not buy any, my printer was not working and I really would love to take advantage of my 50% off coupon;).
Hugs, Sabrina

Beautiful card, Janna! And that is the sweetest picture ever of your daughter asleep on the floor. Do you scrapbook, too? Because that would definitely be one to scrap!

Oh Janna, this is the most precious picture of Izzy. I hope you treasure these moments, and I'm so glad you had your camera handy. Blink your eyes and she'll be grown, but you will always have these memories to warm your heart. Seeing your picture sure brought memories of when my baby would do similar things. My baby is now 24! UGH (where did the time go?) Thanks for sharing this special moment with us!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Wow Janna your card is precious!! Your Mom will love it!!! The image goes perfectly with the sketch.

The picture of Izzy laying on the kitchen floor is even more precious. How Sweet! Hope she feels better soon!

Izzy is adorable! One of my all time favorite pics of Abby is her taking a nap on our kitchen floor with her pink bear. Makes me smile just thinking about it!

Love your card - those Sarah Kay images are too cute. Remind me of my holly hobbie and precious moments days! Love your coloring...I'd love to hear how you color the mary jane's as I can't seem to use the black copics very well!
