Birthday Cards

In November, we went to a first birthday party for two beautiful twin boys - Collin's two best friends! It was a storybook theme, so I thought the paper from DCWV's Once Upon A Time line would be perfect. I managed to bring a small bag of scrapping supplies to the hospital while I was there with Collin (he's doing much better now), and I made these two cards... enjoy!

In Hospital...

Hi all... sorry I haven't posted my SPCC color challenge for this week, it's been very hectic in the Reilly household. My one year old son Collin was admitted to the hospital yesterday. He had a small fever and was vomiting more than he normally does, especially considering he hadn't gotten chemo for two weeks, so we took him to the emergency room. While he was there, his fever spiked up to 104.3, so they admitted him. Bloodwork shows he has a blood infection through his broviac line, so he's staying in the hospital until the blood cultures come back clear, probably not until the end of the week. Until then, I am staying at the hospital with him to make sure everything goes okay, although the nurses at Yale are all wonderful. I'm typing on the hospital's computer, so I don't have access to any of my pics to post, so I'll update the blog as soon as we're discharged. Until then, goodnight!

Halloween Tag

Hi all! I had some fun playing with digi stamps this week and I created this tag with a free digital stamp from Meljens Design - CORRECTION - the stamp is from Bugaboo Stamps (sorry!). Prety cute, I think. I will be attaching this tag to a gift I am still in the process of creating (gotta find something for spiderwebs... any suggestions?). This will be going to my friend Meg who is having a halloween party for my two boys and a few other friends' children. She's totally awesome and halloween is her favorite holiday - she lets her inner witch out to play!
This card will be entered into the following challenges:

These colors really put me in a halloween mood, so I had to look through my halloween stuff to see what I had...

Happy Cardmaking Day!

Hello everyone! In honor of World Cardmaking Day, I thought I would share this group of cards I made... 15 cards using 1 sheet of patterned paper! I used a template I found on the Splitcoast Stampers forum for a 12x12 piece of patterned paper. Simply cut them all out, stamp some images (I used watercolor pencils to color them in... alas, I don't have copics yet!), assemble, and you're done! I think next time though I might try a double sided paper instead for more variety!

Another Monday, another color challenge! Today is a very special day for me - we are celebrating Collin's first birthday! It's been a very hard year for us but we made it through with the help of wonderful family and friends.

Here is the color combo:

I found the sticker quote with these colors as the starting point. When I found it, I knew it would be perfect for Collin's first birthday card.

He definitely fills our hearts with sunshine every day he is with us. He has such a beautiful soul, with so much positivity, it amazes me. Happy First Birthday Collin! Mommy loves you!!
