You Rock!!

Hello again everyone, I was so busy showing off my nephew, I forgot to share my card!! LOL!! By the way, thank you so much to everyone who has been writing to check on me, and offering prayers, I truly appreciate your support!!

I made this card using my new Gina K. set Jumping for Joy. It was designed by Melanie Muenchinger and it is absolutely fabulous!!(She is having a contest using her stamps that will get you free stuff, so be sure to check out her blog!!) I love all of her stuff for Gina K., and if you haven't seen it, or bought it yet, you should go now, of course, AFTER you check out my card!! It was made using the zebra from the set. I actually stamped the zebra three times, twice in Black Stazon and once in Real Red. I cut out the whole zebra and popped it up and then I cut out just the heart on the last one and paper pieced it on the zebras forehead. The background paper is from the SU Prints Pack. I tied a big organdy bow around the whole card, and I added some spiral clips with black and red gingham on them. The zebra striped brads, aren't they fabulous, can also be bought at the Gina K. store. That is all for me now, I am off to see my nephew!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Meet Jared!!

I just had to share some pictures of my new nephew Jared. He was born on Thursday at 12:45pm. He is a tiny little guy weighing only 4lbs 7.5oz, but he is as healthy as a full term baby. His pediatricians only concern is making sure he gains weight instead of loses, so we have been feeding him around every two to three hours. He is starting to eat more and more with every feeding and is doing great!! Knock on wood, he hasn't spit up yet at all, and he rarely ever cries, unless he is cold(as you can tell from one of the pictures-I just got done changing his diaper and he was MAD!!) or wet, and he just lets out one little squeak, and he is done. And trust me when I tell you, his digestive system is working fine!!! He is also super alert, and has a full head of strawberry blond hair. I have spent the last two days at the hospital with him and my sister. I was supposed to be in the delivery room with my sister, but he came a day earlier than he was supposed to(she was scheduled for induction) and I missed it. Let me tell you, anyone who came into the PO in Macedonia saw me crying from around 1 to 3:30!!! I left straight from work on Thursday and got home this morning in time to get ready for work. Now I am taking care of my responsibilities, and I am on my way back. I am completely obsessed with him already!! Isn't he a CUTIE!!! In this last picture he is holding up his own pacifier, isn't it adorable!!
