We welcomed Devon Thomas on 2-27-2010 at 12:15pm.  He weighted 7 lbs. and 21" long.  He's beautiful just like his parents!  He was 2 1/2 weeks early but a healthy boy!


Devon Thomas has arrived!

He's 2 1/2 weeks early, but a healthy, adorable little boy!
Born on 02-27-2010
Weight 7 lbs. even
Length 21 inches.
He decided he wanted to look up during the delivery....made it a little harder on his mama.  But Gavin was a great coach and together they make a great team!  Not to much a beautiful son!

February SOTM cards for March classes

We sure have had a lot going on around here!  Tom shared his cough/cold with I've been moving at a slower pace.  The construction is winding down, now onto decorating!  We have other exciting news, but I'll put all of that in another post!
Here are 3 of the 4 cards that I'll be teaching next month.  This sotm is only available in February though, so let me know if you want me to order you one!

The first card is an easel card.  So easy and cute!
The next card is  a shadow box card.... a very simple version.  You can really go all out with these and make a total diaroma type card.

The last card is a paper pieced card that you could use for a wedding or anniversary.  I used liquid glass to accentuate the dots and layers of foam tape to make the cake rounded.
Taking a second look, I think I'll like this better with the bow only around the top layer!  Sorry about the photography.  My camera battery charger is still lost in some random box somewhere!

The 4th card is still in progress!!!!
Have a great day,

CTMH Feb Product Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome back to the  Close to My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop!  This month we are spotlighting D1346 You Rock stamp set.  I wanted to make Tom a Valentines Day card so nothing girlie would work. I decided on the Grace paper packet with Barn Red, Twilight and Cocoa.  The printed BGTP has nice definitions of family, love and friendship printed on it.  I used the splotch stamp to stamp over the BGTP in second generation. To give the card a little more zing...I cut out the center of the heart and made a shaker card with clear glass beads inside.  The inside says....My World!

I can't wait to use this set to scrap pages of the family playing Rock Band.

I hope you enjoy the hop and be sure to come back next month, on March 15, when we will be featuring the CTMH liquid glass!!!
