Penny Black Christmas in July!!!



Grandbaby Scoop:

Really, I have not been lost. I have had the "bestest" days visiting with my grandbabies! My daughter brought Cole and Luke to visit for 4 days. I have been holding a sleeping baby- "little"  Luke, and having overnight slumber parties with Cole. On the way back home today, Cole told his Mama that he was going to go back and live with Gwamma! ( Guess he got over being in trouble for bonking the dog on the nose LOL!) Oh the energy of a 2 year old (he tells me his is almost 3 in August!).  Little Luke is not so little either. At 5 months and over 20 pounds, he is one little "Bubba Boy"...I know his Mama Erin has no need to lift weights with this guy!  A wonderful weekend for sure!

Card Scoop:

I just had to join in the Christmas in July Penny Black Saturday Challenge #111. My first Christmas card of  2010!
I used some fun DP that I won as blog candy on the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge when it first started up.  I used the sketch below from Taylored Expressions.

The main image is up on dimensionals and has lots of pretty glitter on the "fur". Image is colored with copics. Sentiment is PB as well.


I do not know how much stamping I will get done this week as I am off on vacation soon, but be sure to stop back by for the House Mouse Monday Challenge...lots of pretties to see! Also, a lot  of fun things coming your way in August!
