Been SUPER sick.

Hello crazy crafters!

How many of you are under the weather this past month?  Hot, cold, hot, cold, hot, cold- no I'm not talking about menopause, I'm talking about this weather!  Well, add to that my 1 year old decided it was a wise decision to lick the walmart cart and then a few days after getting a cough- hack right in my face.  You guessed it, the asthmatic who has 2 babies shoved up in her lungs now has a respiratory infection.  This is why no videos in a while.

That's ok.  I'm working on my twins birth announcements though.  I fell in L-O-V-E with Jeannie Phillips Noah's Ark card HERE and I'm using her dimensions for most of it.  I don't have the giraffes from New Arrival, so I've used create a critter.

I'm also tweaking other stuff on the card to make it my own, BUT without her inspiration this wouldn't be done.  I am also using a SUPER fantastical mega-ultra-kick-your-booty stamp set by Miss Mary over at CardzTV.  The stamp set I'm using is called "Twice the Love" and seriously if you don't have her stamps, they are blow-your-mind amazing!  they are seriously high quality photopolymer, and last and last and last.  I don't have a mousepad (just a lap top and don't need one) so I use a foam sheet to do my stamping on to get a cleaner clearer impression.  I'm using the "Two by Two" stamp from it because my animals are coming 2 x 2! LOL.

I always said the only way I'd do a Noah's Ark theme is if I had twins.  the only way it would be "better" is if it were 1 boy and 1 girl.  now THAT would be funny!  (at least to me and my twisted sense of humor)  But anyhow, that's what I'm working on now that my two older kids are with their biofather for the next 9 days.  I will post a list of everything used and label it too so you can quickly find it!

much love and hugs,
