Sending Special Thoughts and Wishes to a Very Special Someone

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great weekend! We had a busy one, but things are getting back to normal. The babies went home Thursday and when I asked how things went the 1st night, I was told not bad. They eat every 3-4 hours and sleep in between so Kenny and Kim were able to get SOME sleep, which is something they weren't able to do when Kenny Michael was born. Kenny goes back to work today, so we will take Kenny Michael a few days a week until they get a routine in place. They are not fussy babies so it shouldn't take too long before things start to settle down for them. We took dinner to them last night and had a chance to visit, they are so fortunate to have their good babies 2nd, unlike me, had my youngest son been born 1st...I wouldn't have had!
Here is a birthday card I made for my good friend Gigi using The Cutting Cafe's Birthday Greetings Inside and Out. I love this file, there are 20 sentiments suitable for either the inside or out in all kinds of different font...I love it---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.75 x 4.75 Square
Nestibilities: Petite Oval/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Script Texture A2 Embossing Folder, Birds and Swirls A2 Embossing Folder
Punch: Nellie Snellen Floral Medium/Large Flower Set, EK Mountain Fern, Martha Stewart Branch, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly, I also used Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Birthday Greeting Inside and Out
Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Cordination Whitewash
Top Layer Cardstock: Cordination Whitewash (embossed and sanded)

That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by...see you next time, enjoy your day!

This is such a pretty card Kelly, I'm sure your friend will love it. I had to laugh when I read your comment that had your 2nd been born 1st, you wouldn't have had feelings exactly! Babies are a lot of work, I can't image 2 at the same time. I'm glad they are good babies.

Hi Kelly love your card and the colour combination and the use of your Cuttlebug folders. Yes still winter here, we are off to Australia in October for some warmer weather. Spoke to my sister the other day on the Gold Coast winter for her was 26c and about 10c at night. I laughted when you said that if you had your second child first you wouldn't have had any more. My first was purrrrrfect but my second didn't sleep as well and wanted to be breast feed until he was two... that why I only have the two boys!!LOL
Take care

Charlene said...

Kelly, this is such a pretty card! Love the blues!

Our second son was sick alot so he was our hardest but he's now the sweetest.
