LIMELIGHT SKETCH

Hi all!! Whew!! I was able to squeeze in a little bit of stamping time and so I decided I wanted to do the sketch posted at Limelight Papercrafts! I love Limelight, Mandy is awesome and so are the DT gals!! If you have never been to the site, you should check them out! I decided to use the sketch to do Kayla's birthday card since her birthday is this Friday - and yes, she is doing a sleepover (I must be CRAZY!!!) She is going to be TWELVE - I mean, how does this happen??!!! So, I am preparing for the onslaught as they will arrive on Saturday night and stay until Sunday afternoon! We have lots of fun things planned though, so I will have some things to share. Kayla adores cupcakes so I think I will be making those for her to take to school on Friday. She will love the glittery cupcakes on her card too! Here is the recipe, I am off to take a shower and take care of Bella while Tony watches football! It really IS like having a new baby.....and now I know why sometimes its a good thing that my kids are older, LOL! And, for an update on our new edition: she is doing REALLY well and has been running around, playing, and being really cute! She is eating really well, and seems to be feeling better! Now we are working on potty training - that is soooo much fun - NOT!!!! And, the other two doxies are still not very friendly so it causes some logistical issues, but I am hoping with time they will adjust. Otherwise, it will be very hard for us all to coexist!! Here is a cute picture I took of Bella this morning - I just think she is adorable!I will be back tomorrow with something cute to share!! Enjoy your Sunday!

What a sweet card--so feminine and cute! Have fun at your slumber party!! Girls are such gigglers!! You won't probably get much sleep...but who cares--you are up with your "baby" anyway. Speaking of her, she is absolutely adorable. I do see why you all fell in love with her.

super cute card!! i love the colors. older dogs don't really like puppies, but they will come around. my gracie was 3 years older than sadie, so we had some growling and crap for a few days. they'll come around!! my neighbor has a new puppy, graice nearly has a heart attack when she comes to the fence, but sadie loves her...they are both puppies...now throw in a couple of cats...LOL
