BellaG Designs and my boys

So first off i just wanted to share these cute pictures of my boys; they are growing up so fast it's unbelievable! You are probably wondering what Charlie has in his face. Well, I personally do not like Cadbury easter eggs with the gooey creamy center but i was curious to know if the kids liked them so while we were running errands at the pharmacy i bought them each an egg that they quickly devoured in the car. Of course that meant very chocolaty fingers! I told them to lick them clean (uh, hello! that's the best way to clean up chocolate!) Brady just wiped his hands on his jeans (after i specifically told him not to!) Charlie (that's my boy!) licked his fingers clean, well almost. He started with the pinky, that he stuck in his mouth of course that made the first and middle finger stick up in his face and that is why he's got two chocolate lines up his face. On the whole drive home i kept telling him not to wipe his face clean cause i wanted to take a pic! scrapbooker mom, what can i tell ya!

now off to some cards. here are all the cards i made for my first special order through BellaG Designs. These were all for one of my hubbie's co-worker. hope she likes them!

store update

I've just updated my shop with new cards, please check it out here!
I have also been asked, by three different people, to do some custom-made cards.

the first is for my sister. she really like this card but would've preferred is the design had a little girl instead so i mixed a digital image (Odette) from The Greeting Farm with Little Loud Stamp - Jacob's table for two I did some masking technique and love the way it turned out. Although i think that next time i would angle Odette a little bit towards the table.

the next one is the first of a five card order from my hubby's co-worker.
I totally forgot to share this with you guys. here's the cake i made for Charlie's third birthday (back in mid-January) it's a giant cupcake! the bottom is a white cake with chocolate icing and fondant, the top is a carrot cake with cream cheese icing topped with a fondant caterpillar.

this is what i left on the table for hubby this morning! I used an empty bag of buttons found in my stash while cleaning. I stuffed it with hot lips and used a piece of Fancy Pants V-day paper from last year. the title "hot 4 you" was done on a piece of white cardstock then cut out and glued on. very simple but he appreciated it. btw, i'm still waiting for my v-day present or wish or sentiment....whatever anything will do...

thanks for stopping by!

PWCO papercard kit - Sketch #18

Here's my take on this week's sketch! I think it is perfect as a gift card holder for a quick little thank you to someone your care about. well in this case i used one of my Starbucks cards that was given to me by my best friend when she came down for a visit 2 weeks ago. I have to remember to take it out of my stash and put it back in my wallet.
