So many reasons to be excited ! 2 posts for the day!

#1- I got chosen for Top 3 at Stamping Vacation Challenge- Pick 3. This was over 2 weeks ago (if not a month) but because I am a little slow with learning all these technical aspects of computer organizing.....I only found out YESTERDAY!! I am such a dope!! How exciting to be able to have their award on my blog!!

#2- I am currently 39 weeks gestation!

#3- I went to the city the other day & had a 'date night' with hubby before our new baby's arrival! We ate at our favorite seafood place & were supposed to go see a movie afterwards; however due to the fact that I made him wait for 40 minutes for a table, I sacrificed the movie for a shopping spree! That was a very wise decision!
We went to Micheals where I got some great deals(punches, blending stumps, cuttlebug folders) & proceeded to a warehouse discount store down the street, where I (I should say Hubby- he always finds the good deals)stumbled across a mini-sewing machine! He said "That would be good for your cards!" I love that as much as he hates me working on my cards at the dining room table, he still always has an eye out for me!!! XOXOXO

#4- So I was able to create this card without faux stitching......I got to use ACTUAL stitching!!! WooHoo!!

All Sorts Challenge Blog- Tag, ticket or label
Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club- Holly
Charisma Card Challenge- Sketch

#5- More reasons for excitement- Roberta (Prairie Fairy), Lori (Just Ducky) & Kelly (Kelly' Kreative Korner) got together last night for supper, snacks & an evening of crafting. Unlike Lori (haha!) I got two cards done. One for another challenge and one for fun, which is now my favoritist card EVER!! You;ll have to wait and see!

#6- I learned how to color with pencil crayons, blending stumps and baby oil per Prairie Fairy tutorial on her blog!! I am addicted now!

I think that about covers my excitement for one day. If this does not put me in labour, I don't know what will!
