Exciting News!!!

Hi Everyone! I am coming to you from my iPad today, i haven't really got on my computer since my last post. I have been busy and some exciting things going on in my life right now. I know my last post I mentioned I have some exciting news for y'all. Well....I am expecting!!! This is our first child and. Hubby and I are so excited, so is our family. We kept it a secret for a long time, but I did tell a few crafting friends :-)  awhile back. We got to see the baby last week and it was so exciting and it finally felt real. The baby is great with a great heartbeat 167.  I wanted to wait and tell family and so did hubby. I will be 12 weeks this week and I am due in Jan.

Everything is going great so far and I continue to pray it will. I had nausea up til 10 weeks, I would get nauseous before I eat or if I ate something that just didn't set well with me. I never threw up thank goodness. I have been feeling great, but I have been tired a lot, so that is why I am mia from blogger and crafting. I try to work on things but I just lose my mojo. I hope to try and at least make something every week. So if you don't see any post from me, that is why. I will try and visit others and leave comments.

So that is my exciting news!!! We are so excited and so is the family. Hubby n I both wanted kids, but we were waiting for the right time. I ask for prayers that my pregnancy goes well, and for a happy and healthy baby.

Hugs, Sheena

Hi Everyone and a Challenge

Hi Everyone, I am back..I wanted to take a little break from working on projects. Also I have a lot of exciting things going on in my life right now, so I am kinda busy with that too...will update more later :) So I am gonna try an work on some challenges at least once a week, hoping to get in more than one a week. This week will only be one cause I am super busy and only had time to work on a quick card.
I made this card for Little Scrap Pieces. The theme for the challenge is Stars and Stripes. Ok I knew I wanted my card to be patriotic, but guess what I don't own paper that is even close to patriotic. How I never buy a stack for summer I have no idea, but I really need to. I dug thru my paper stacks to find some blue stripes of the color blue I wanted, and I used the red paper from a Christmas stack. This card is small and I might use it for a Thank You to some family who will be helping out this weekend with our big family fireworks cookout.

I Used/Recipe:
Darice CS
Wild Card -pg52 Blackout feature 4 1/4"
Plantin Schoolbook - Circle 3 3/4" -- Star 1 1/2" -- USA/Roly Poly 1"
Stickles Silver

**sorry if the lighting is bad...the window where I take my pics to have natural light the people that do the yard work for our Apt complex was working on the tree and bushes right out by that window, So I tried to get a good enough light. Plus I had to take it early cause we have more severe storms rolling in, this will be day 20 of rain and storms, the ground can't take anymore an there has been flooding in areas.**

Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone had a great 4th. 

Hugs, Sheena
