Wow! It has been AGES since I got to post anything on here! The other Design Team ladies have been doing an awesome job during my hiatus dealing with all our family emergencies keeping you inspired with their stunning projects. It really felt like things would never start to look up, but they finally are :)
I wanted to get back to my Design Team duties for The Cutting Cafe for what short time there is left for this session. I have to say that Regina has been so amazing and supportive, and extremely patient while letting me take the time to handle everything going on with my family this last month and half. It really means the world to me. Thank you so much Regina!
Now you are going to have to go easy on me today because this is literally the first thing I have made in about a month! I felt like I was a new stamper - LOL! I even was shaking when I started to color because I didn't want to mess it up - LOL!
This week we got to use the SUPER ADORABLE new printable stamp set called Big Girl Elisha Jean and Friends. These are larger versions of Regina's adorable character stamps. I have to say that I really LOVE this size, they are so cute and fun to color. I used the Ruby. J. image from the set for my card.
I paper pieced her dress. The seed packet and watermelon are from Flourishes Stamps. My designer papers are from an old October Afternoon pad I had.
Here is a close up of Ruby. J.
I think she is super cute :)
And speaking of Big Girls... I thought I would share a few pictures of my little niece Zaena. She was born a little over 9 weeks premature. She has been gaining weight pretty steadily and is off her oxygen. She is starting to take milk from the breast and is doing awesome! She still has her feeding tube, but she is getting less through that every day. She is up to 4 lbs 4 oz now, so 2 more ounces and she will have gained a whole pound since she was born :)
Well, I better get this submitted! Be sure to check out The Cutting Cafe Inspiration Blog to see how my fellow teamies used their images! While you are there leave a comment and you could be this week's lucky prize winner of some free files from The Cutting Cafe! How fun is that?!?!
Thanks for stopping by today! It feels good to start getting back in the swing of things :)
