Sweet Jaylen

Well I am just so thankful today is Sunday because this has been a week. My baby is 24 yrs old today, eeekkk. That makes me feel so old. Anyway we got home from supper last night to a frantic phone call from dh's dad. All by dh could hear was his dad saying "I need you down her now, I can not wake up your Mom." He hung the phone up and here we go. Left cold & frozen foods in the floor. After about 30min and the EMT's loading her on the stretcher to go to the hospital we came home and put up the cold stuff and headed to the ER. She has had seizures pretty much all of her life but has not had a great deal of trouble in many years. They found her blood level for her medication very low. We drove them home at 2:30am and it was around 3:30am before I could go to sleep. I have 2 smart clocks, meaning that they automatically adjust to the fall and spring time changes. Well apparently they are programmed by the OLD schedule because I woke up at 8:30 and began getting meat ready to go on the smoker for dd's birthday supper. After I had awakened dh I looked at the other clocks and it was only 7:30am ooops. I knew that was going to happen just did not know when. The weekend that time did actually change I had to manual reset the time. Now I have to find out when the time would have changed in the fall or we will be 1 hr late for work. gggrrrr. Onto the the card for today.

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER this week featuring Kristie (aka:mommylvs2stamp). I enjoyed browsing through her gallery and decided on CASEing her SWEET BABY card. I changed the colors and the placement of my ribbon, used a circle behind my focal image, applied stickles, and doodled in the center of the scallop border. I also used this weeks TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Paper Tole by cutting out and popping up the moon and largest star on the focal image after stamping in ballet blue. The stars in the center of the stamped stars stamped in ballet blue are from a paper punch. The focal image is stamped in bashful blue then matted on a deeper blue cs cicle from a paper punch. Stickles applied to the stars around the scallop image, the popped up stars and moon. I used my white souffle pen to do the scallop border. The card base is embossed w/swiss dots from Cuttlebug. I will be giving this to my baby daughter who is 24 yrs old today, YEH! She is scheduled for a repeat C-Section May 12th and it is a boy. Jaylen is the name she is planning on. Now if she changes her mind, the letters are from quicktutz Daisy Alphabet and I will have to take them off and replace them with something else :0 RECIPE:

Paper: non su
