Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!

Happy Monday everyone!!!

This is going to be a short post today as we are now in crunch mode for the next month and a half or so for getting all the projects done around the house. Jason and I worked a ton this weekend and I now have half the rooms in our house painted and near completion. Just needing some outlets changed and transom pieces put in the doorways! I am so, so excited!

I have a quick Izzy story to share with you today. So for some reason Izzy has been calling us Mom and Dad! I have no idea where she is picking it up from, but now she asks us for things using the names Mom and Dad. I have to say I am a little sad about it. I really like to hear her little voice say, Mommy and Daddy. It is so much cuter that way. I think probably it is bothering me because it is reminding me that she is growing up. My baby isn't a baby any more!!!!! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

So today is Little Paper Shop Monday and we have an awesome sketch for you today made by the very talented Cindy Haffner. There is a prize for the challenge this week, too! ONE lucky winner will be randomly chosen to win the {Beary Best Katie} stamp set! So you will definitely want to give this one a try!

Don't you love this great layout, and Katie sitting on that cupcake looks so good! Wonder why I am so hungry now! LOL! Anywhoo I started this card by first stamping {Katie Cupcake} by Little Paper Shop on white card stock and colored her in using my copic markers. Following this week's sketch, I layered on green and brown card stock along with some DP from Stampin' UP! I printed off my sentiment on the computer and attached it in the corner and finished everything off by adding some green brads to the corners.

Want to play along with this week's challenge? Simply leave a comment over on the LPS blog to let us know you played and if you upload to SCS or PCP, use keyword LPSC25 this week. And don't forget that {Angelic Jena} along with {Beary Best Katie} are also 10% off JUST through today, so if you haven't gotten yours yet, you have through the end of the day for the SALE!

Now go check out the rest of the amazing DT's creations!
Thanks for stopping by! Smiles!

Beautiful! Love the brads you added and the coloring is stunning, as always! Awww, yeah the transition to "Mom and Dad" is sad! She needs to stay little w/ that little voice! Tell her Aunt Jess will come have a talk with her, LOL!!!

Cindy Haffner said...

Oh yummy you rocked the sketch!!!

Cathy said...

This is so cute!! I love that big cupcake and those brads are awesome. I remember when Brittany started to call us Mom and Dad and I was so sad too. I know what you're feeling. I know it's kindof hard to realize at each stage that they are growing up. Hugs, Cathy

Wow this is so super pretty:o) TFS

Heather said...

Totally great job on this however it is not the same pieces I saw you had out for this image last week!!!

I want to know what the Heck is going on what once someone actually comes and visits you and drives a 1000 miles then you decide you do not need to talk to them anymore?? See if I come back next month!!!

LOL I get that you are busy but my feelings are starting to get hurt!!! LOL!!! I have had no adult conversation in over a week now!!! LOL!!!!

Great Card and Tucker has started the Mom thing too, but I correct him every time and say Mommy and he is getting back to the Mommy mode now with just an occasional Mom Mom mommy??? here and there!!

At least she is not calling you Mother as Easten has decided that is what he will call Emily and he never says Mommy or Mom anymore always Mother!!!

Beautiful card Janna and awesome colouring. I love how you've added the brads. I think Izzy is just going through a phase - a phase my little girls went through as well. Hang in there, she'll revert back to Mommy and Daddy soon. Hugs, Maria

Michelle said...
