KLM It's A Boy

I am back from vacation and trying to get my head back in the game. I need a vacation to recover from my vacation - know what I mean? We were at Disney World celebrating our wedding anniversary, my daughter's birthday, and Halloween at the Not So Scary Halloween Party. We had so much fun! I really recommend the Halloween party. And the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is running at the same time. The food (and the wine) were fabulous. It was so much fun walking around trying various foods from the different countries. My daughter really loved the new Kim Possible adventure at Epcot. It really was fun for the whole family. You get sent on a 20 minute scavenger hunt around one of the "countries" in the World Showcase in Epcot. If you are going with kids, check it out.

Well, enough of that. I had better get to business. I created this card with one of the new digital sentiment stamps from KLM Designs which were released on 11-1-10. I love digital sentiments because you can resize them to fit your needs. In this case, I kept it nice and big so it could be the focal point of my card.

You can pick up this sentiment and the "It's a Girl" sentiment I used last week on the KLM Designs blog for just $1.00.

Thank you for stopping by today!


  • Images: It's A Boy digital stamp from KLM Designs
  • Papers: Georgia Pacific CS, PTI Chocolate CS, My Mind's Eye Complete Boy DP pack
  • Inks: Distress Inks Tea Dye & Antique Linen
  • Tools: EK Success Edge punch, Stampin' Up Star punch
  • Embellishments: CTMH twine, card board (for star)



Sounds like you had a great time and so many things to celebrate, how fun and what great memories! You sure are back in the game, your card is great and so boy like, love that the sentiment is front and center.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
