It's a girl

Very early Monday morning, my little daughter was born. She weighed 6lbs 1 oz and was 19 inches long, not bad for being only 35 weeks. We're both doing well.

After some initial concern about her blood sugar levels, she was able to maintain it and came home Tuesday evening.

My new stamp sets

My friend and I placed a big order for stamps this past week, so now I have a bunch of new stamps. I think I actually have enough that I can convince myself not to buy any more for a long time. I have the coolest snow flake set (Provo Craft), a flower set (watercolor minis), the most beautiful tree set which will work for Christmas and for doing scenes (lovely as a tree), a set that has a frog, a goldfish and a flower (all wrapped up) which is great for kids birthdays, and a cute bear set (favorite teddy bear) that will work for birthdays/Christmas/Mother's day.

I've slowly been trying out my new sets. I only have favorite teddy bear left to try out.

Tonight I was making Christmas cards. I've been trying to come up with one that will work for the ones I will send out this year and one that will work as a present. My plan is to give out sets of handmade cards for Christmas. I made 3 different cards, 2 of which I really like. I need to remember though to keep my fingers out of the versimark when I am embossing or I end up with a bunch of embossed fingerprints. At least people can tell they are hand made :)
