I’m sure you’ve had quite enough of the photos of a particular newborn, so I figured I’d better get back to the regularly scheduled program a bit here on the blog! (Only grandparents can get away with showing you such photos for weeks on end!) Believe me, DD is going to grow up knowing full well that her mother is basically a paparazza!
I spent a little time in my craft room over the weekend and it felt so great to do a little creating again! I made a musical themed card to go along with the Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. We are to CASE hskelly’s wonderful cards this week! I chose to CASE this card.
I figured this could be a masculine birthday card given its monochromatic color scheme and the lack of an abundance of bling! I did add a little shine to the music notes with Crystal Effects. The sentiment banner was made by yours truly as I realized I didn’t have a banner die that was big enough to stretch over the center circle! Of course, maybe I really do have one that size, but time is of essence these days and I wasn’t wanting to spend a whole lot of it digging through my stash when I could easily make one with a strip of cardstock and a square punch! The beauty of creativity, I tell you!
It’s off to DD’s 2-week check up today and another blood test to double check her bilirubin levels. We were able to take her off the bili blanket Friday evening, so hoping she’ll keep stable from here on out! So happy to be snuggling with her without the extra weight and bulk of the blanket!
