Oh MY!

Ok so I ended up staying home yesterday and it was a good thing I did! I took Colton to the doctor and he has strept throat! YIKES! Poor little fella doesn't feel well at all. The real kicker is that he's allergic to pennacilin (he breaks out in hives) so they prescribed something else instead of just giving him a shot in the office. The medicine burned his little throat! The only upside to today was that I got a bit of stamping done! YAY! And also he has to stay home tomorrow so that means I'll be here all day too. Colton is such a love. He has a great time stamping with Mommy! I absolutely love it. So let's get to today's card!

Todays card is a smaller card but just as cute as ever! I love this stamp set, Pun Fun (115054). I inked the stamp in Staz-On Jet Black Ink (101406) and then took a baby wipe and wiped the ink off the sentiment under the hippo. I stamped this cute feller on Watercolor Paper (105019) and, using Blender Pens (102845) and the Bashful Blue Stampin' Write Marker (105111) began coloring his body. His little bow and balloon are colored in this manner with the So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker (105114), his toes with Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write Marker (100072) and his shadow with Creamy Caramel (100078). The card is 4" x 4" in Bashful Blue Cardstock (105120) with a 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" piece of Delicate Dots DSP (SAB 114674). The "Congratulations" sentiment is from the Congrats (SAB 113770) set. Also from the SAB Mini I used the So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon from the Ribbon Bundle (114618). Lastly I punched out Certainly Celery Cardstock (105125) with the Scallop Circle Punch (109043) and added doodle dots with White Gel Pen (105021). I thought this card would be perfect for the birth of a baby boy. In fact, my good friend Shaira is having a little boy in about 10 weeks and I'm not going to be able to go to her baby shower. So maybe I'll put together a little something for her. I'm thinking a chipboard album and a Basket made with the Big Shot! Stay tuned!

Well everyone, I hope you all have a great day. I will be here all day trying to avoid getting sick too because everyone knows that is Mom goes out of commision, the whole house shuts down! Again, have a great day and be sure to check out the Occasions mini preview. You can find this on my links to the right. If you have any questions at all feel free to email me at!
