Well what better way to celebrate than to put up a new avatar photo AND card??? I figure it was time to change the photo out since my youngest is now 1! The old picture is when she was only 4 weeks(wiping away a tear...lol). Anyhoo, I took a much needed break from NYC and from crafting. It was definitely what the kids and I needed. We spent nearly 5 weeks in GA visiting with my sister and her family and the rest of my family joined us there as well. We are all out of state so it was nice to visit with all of us together:) Now, as soon as hubby shows me how to get my new pic up, it will be changed in the "about me" section. I will give it an attempt, but I can't promise anything...lol Also, I will be doing my first "BLOG GOODIES" giveaway this Friday. I will post it Friday and a lucky gal will be chosen on Monday Morning:)Now, for the card! I received new Bellas for my birthday, but they had not been inked yet...so you know what I did on my vacation!!! These gals are not only sassy, but ubercute and fun to color! I used Papertrey Ink white cardstock for the base(very sturdy) and cut SU! certainly celery and Bashful Blue cs to coordinate. The "polk dot & paisley" bg stamp is inked with certainly celery and stamped on the entire card front. I used my SU! scalloped edger on Bashful Blue for the top and also added the ribbon and rhinestones for a nice touch. CM oval cutters were used for the sentiment frame and the sentiment is from some pre-inked stamps I bought at Archiver's. As a last "bling" touch I added some Stardust Stickles to her crown and ring.
