Fab Friday FIFTY

Hi stampers and happy Friday!  It's time for our 50th challenge over at Fab Friday!  Wow, FIFTY challenges now!  I'd like to thank my design team for all their hard work and for all of our stampers who play along with us!  This time we figured we would celebrate our golden anniversary with a very fitting color challenge!

I would like to say I'm getting the new mom thing and the stamping thing figured out but the best laid plans....

I totally planned on going down to stamp today (I'm writing this on Thursday) when Ian takes his usual 2-3 hour long afternoon nap.  Perfect plan!  He's taken a nap around 12 almost every day and I always say I'll go stamp but I either do other stuff (laundry, wash bottles...all that fun stuff) or kind of lay around on the couch and watch TV and catch up on email and what not.  I don't really nap but I can at least rest then.  I either can't fall asleep even if I want to or I don't because I think I actually sleep better at night when I'm tired.  Anyway today was the ONE day when the dog went nutso and barked her fool head off.  Her barking usually doesn't bother him but she barked more than usual and right by him.  So, she woke him up LITERALLY the minute I was turning on the monitor to go downstairs.  GAH!  Figures, right?  Then he would NOT go back to sleep even though I knew he was tired.  When he finally did it was laying next to me on the couch so I couldn't just leave him there and at first I didn't think he was asleep because he was doing the weird thing he does sometimes where he moves around and has his eyes open but he's asleep.  At least I think he was....BUT...I wasn't risking it either way and moving him so instead of stamping I went ahead and made my blog posts so I could watch him since he was on the couch.  I'm NOT waking a sleeping baby lol!  Daddy will have to pull some duty tonight so I can make my card as I dropped the ball last week...didn't even realize what day it was lol!  Maybe he'll get back on track in the nap department and I can stamp some other afternoons!

Anyway, here's my card:

Ok, so I know it looks a lot like another card I just did but hey, I stamped ok?  And I'm happy with that lol! Better than nothing.  And I'm kind of excited!  I'm taking some mom time tonight and going to a crop in the next town over!   Hoping to meet some nice people and to get some projects done!!!!

Now, head on over and check out all the glitzy fabulousness of the DT and help us celebrate by playing along!  Dazzle us!!!

Happy stamping!


  1. Cute Mindy! From the looks of the gallery I'm going to have to get on board with this Foil Vellum! TFS!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
