I love the combination of kraft, cream, dark brown accents and pastels. And you *know* I had to play with my new PTI goodies, so I created these baby announcement cards using PTI's Pretty Pastels paper and the Baby Button Bits stamp set. I have a friend who's due in February, so the timing was perfect.
Each bear and button is color-coordinated with the strip of paper at the top of the card. The materials were: paper, stamps, buttons: Papertrey Ink; kraft: Stampin' Up!;cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, The Paper Company; ink: Ranger; tools: Cuttlebug (
On Friday night/Saturday we got 5" of snow and sleet. The kids had a ball playing outside yesterday. Until they started playing with sticks. Matthew ended up accidentally hitting Jeremy with one, slicing his cheek open. The cut was deep and had jagged edges, so I took him to the ER for stitches. Luckily, the roads were better than they usually are in NC when it snows, and I was able to get there and home just fine. It was not fun to have to mummify him to keep him still during the stitching. Three of us were needed to hold him down, in addition to the wrapping. Once he realized that the anesthetic was working, he finally relaxed and we were able to leave very shortly thereafter. He won't let me take a picture of it yet, but I will. The stitches won't come out until Thursday.
Both he and Matthew had already had endless lectures about swinging sticks around. Hopefully this will finally have taught them a lesson.
