You must've been a beautiful baby...

I just love creating cards with punches, and this card is no exception. I made this for my step-daughter's sister-in-law...who is expecting a boy within the next several months. So I used a CASE from someone on one of my list serves..(no watermark on the picture I saved so I don't have their name - so if its you or you know who made the card I CASE'd, please let me know so I can give proper credit). On this CASE I changed the colors and added the curly cue on the baby's forehead, and changed the sentiment. I really like how it turned out, and it makes me smile to see it. Quick and easy - once you figure it out!! LOL

Stamps: Sweetness Unlimited
Ink: black marker, blush marker, close to cocoa marker, black ink
Paper: whisper white, retired blue bayou, retired DSP porcelain prints
Access: sponge, PUNCHES: eyelet border, scallop circle, 1 3/4 circle, 1 3/8 circle, 1 1/4 circle, whisper white taffeta ribbon, circle ice rhinestone brad, and SU textured impression folder - Perfect Polka Dots, Big Shot

A WOW baby shower gift.

I thought you would all like to see this gift I put together for a mother-to-be. See this post on my page called ReenS Creations for instructions on how I completed this awesome baby shower gift. Its a laundry basket that houses all of the clothing and blankets I got for the expectant mother. This gift creates a massive amounts of "oohs" and "aahhhs" and it as much fun to make and give as it is to open.

One of a Kind...

Just wanted to share with you one of my all time favorite cards I made last October (2009). This was a birthday card for my DD (darling daughter) and it came out so well - I took it back!!! LOL

All of the colors are current - at least until the end of this catty - and I adore this I will be getting some more of it, you can count on it. Used my punches and my Big Shot - and it was actually very easy to do....will come back and post the recipe as I don't know WHAT I did with the catty that is supposed to be by my desk....Hope you like it too!

OK - so the following card is from a retired set, but I HAD to share this with you see my daughter needed a card for a friend who it turning 50 so wanted it to be loud and proud so to speak - and so we were all in the craft studio - and Ryan, my daughter's fiance made the card!! He is wonderful!! Big football playing macho guy who could crack you like a walnut, is very artistic with a great eye for colors, and he likes stamping!! YAHOO!! MAN ALIVE, when my prayers are answered - they are in a BIG way!! LOL (those were the prayers for my daughter's Mr. Right- that is!!)

Birthday Boy card

We had one of the four boys' birthday parties and here is CJ's birthday card. I thought he would find these lil guys amusing...

Excitement at our house!

So - my little six foot baby, Stephanie....the NICU engaged to be married!!! Proof that prayers will be answered, I assure you! We prayed her Mr. Right would come along...and Mr. Wrong go away...and so it has come to pass!!! So I thought I would share a photo from their engagement shoot which was held at the Rose Garden in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Their photographer, Steve, is from Spotlite Video and Photography, and is a real sweetheart! Check this out...

If you click on this picture, you will be taken to the photographer's website and you can see the 100+ shots of Stephanie and Ryan. Many good shots, which is lucky, because they are both giggle-pusses. LOL We are looking at a wedding to be held on 10-1-11. Karma...she was due October 1st....born October 25...stubborn from the get-go!! We are SO HAPPY!!!

A Man Card!!!

So here is a card I did for my son-in-law for his birthday this past fall....told you I didn't stop stamping...I just had to make sure I remembered to take a photo before giving it to him at his party! LOL Hope you like it!

Just wanted to put in some pics of the major snow fall of 2010 - my house looks so pretty!

And I learned how to use the snow blower...then I took the Scruff-man out for a walk...since he has to walk the street or sidewalk since the snow was up over his lil' belly! I don't know if you can tell, but the snow on the sides are the same height as his head...poor lil' man! He was so funny in the snow...
