Believe it or not, I finally stamped! Cindy gave us this fun sketch for Freshly Made Sketches this week and it got me out of my slump for a minute. Well, more than a minute I guess. Who can make a card in a minute?
I have really been struggling with stamping lately. I don't want to stamp, I don't enjoy stamping. It's a very strange place for me. I have been avoiding it unless I have to do it. When I sat down to make this card, I had no idea where to start. I finally pulled out my Color Coach and picked a combination. After that I made most of the card and then looked for a stamp set that would work with it. Not the most traditional way of doing it, but it ended up working out. I like how it turned out and that's a nice change for me. :)

Someone has discovered that they LOVE mom's iPhone. Uh oh! I'm sure it won't be long before she knows how to use it better than I do. :)
Like all Texas kids, Laila had to have her picture made in the bluebonnets. Her poor eye was really bugging her after our trip. Our doctor gave us a referral if we wanted to get it checked out, but let us know that it can take up to she's a year old for the tear duct to open all the way. We are going to wait for now and try to massage it as much as we can. That's quite a task considering how active she is now!
