Baby love and cards for my mom...

It's been a long since I've posted something.  It's been very busy around the house.  Lylah is just over 2 months old now, and Caleb is 19 we are very busy.  Caleb has been very wonderful toward his little sister, he just loves her so.  Always kissing her, and wanting to hold her.  Such a sweet little man.  When we brought Lylah home from the hospital, my youngest daughter got the best picture of Caleb kissing Lylah:
Now that isn't that the most precious thing ever!  I just love it!
Well, Mother's Day was on the 9th, and I spent some time making some cards and book marks for my mom.  She is always wondering where a bookmark is, so I like to keep a good supply for her.  These were super easy.  I just took a 12x12 piece of card stock, with a strip pattern.  Then I cut some rectangle shapes from the paper, had my kids sign and date the back, ran them through a laminator...and now my mom has 7 more book marks.  I think she'll be good for a while.  Here are the cards I made for her.

Some little notebooks…

Just wanted to spice up some small notebooks.  One was for a prize during the pcC board “sketti” party.  I hope Jaime like's it. :o)  The other one is for the contest that I am having for guessing Lara’s due date.  Got the idea for dressing up the notebooks from Gina K DesignsStamp TV.  She has some very wonderful projects on her site.  Love the gift card holder, really want to try that!

New month, new Scentsy scents, and a little contest...

Ready for March? Ready for Spring? I am looking forward to warmer days, rain instead of snow, and pretty flowers making their appearance.

The new scents are available at Scentsy. They are many wonderful new scents, and some returning favorites. Among the returning is Blueberry Cheesecake, very yummy! There is new Tropical Twist - a blend of papaya, mango, and mandarin. Love clean, crisp scents, our scent of the month is just right...Spring Clean.

I am having a little contest. Lara is due in a couple weeks. Put some guesses here to when she might have the baby (give date and time), the winner will get a free Scentsy hanging car scent of their choice, and a personalized notepad and pen. Just to give you an idea, she will be 37 weeks along on Wednesday (3/3).

To get a sample of any scent, just email me and I would be happy to send you one!

Haven't done much....

After my stay in the hospital, I just haven't been in a crafting mood. I did join a swap on the pcCrafter MB, around Valentine's day. I guess I should get some pictures posted of what I made for my swap buddy. That did help spark a little creativity. I joined an Easter swap, and I have been working on my cards and treat. I don't want to post any pictures of those until my swap buddy gets them.

I found a new bog to follow: Jacque's Joie de Vivre  She says she new to the card-making and stamping could not tell it by her creations. I was very impressed with all that I saw on her site. I hope you will stop by and give it a look.

Well, I'm off to finish my Easter swap.

Hugs to all,

Hugs Lorie
