I can't believe how fast this year has gone! It seems only yesterday I was popping out and you could see me coming around the corner with Jude in my belly! My son drew a picture to show how I funny I look coming around a corner...not funny! Well, yeah actually it was pretty funny! This year I am going to savor every moment with my family! Last year we came home from the hospital two days before Christmas with Jude. It was the only gift we all wanted, to be home together with the little guy! Many of you may not know his story, but it really feels like a miracle that he is here and I thank God every night as I put my little one to bed. Okay, so here is my first Christmas card, this will be going to a very good friend of mine from my teen years! When I saw these stamps from Stampotique...I thought oh my gosh there's my whole crew! Yup, I was so goth and punk rock! I can't believe I am now so conservative, a Girl Scout Leader, and won't even let my son go on his first date alone! Okay enough babbling!
I used this Stampotique Originals image by Daniel Torrente named Stitch...isn't she cute? The sentiment is also by Stampotique. I used Designer paper from a Christmas Mat Stack by DCWV. The Acrylic snow flake is by Heidie Swapp, and I dabbed them with Evergreen and Cardinal inks by VersaMark. The fiber is by EK Success, and the brad from We Are Memory Makers. Oh and the swirl is from Sizzix. I used my Steadtler watercolors to color her in. I think I did ok! Hope you all enjoy it!
And this is my son's smart a@# drawing of my coming around the corner during my pregnancy!
