It's a boy!

Happy Saturday!  Here we are at a weekend in July!  Can it get any better?  I am here with a new Scrappy Saturday Wee Memories Challenge!  This week our sponsor is Stamps of Life!

Our challenge this week is CAS, Clean and Simple!  This worked perfectly for me as I had this card idea in my head to make for my hubby's cousin's baby shower!  

This card was a huge hit at the shower!  My hubby didn't think it actually looked like a mustache and that no one would get it!  LOL  I made the mustache myself!  I folded a piece of cardstock in half and than hand drew half the mustache on it and cut it out (that way it was the same on both sides)  I than used that as my mask and traced along on a piece of brown cardstock.  I stamped the background by HA life of the party dots in robin's egg blue pigment ink and the sentiment is a HA stamp that I have had for a long time.  

I have to share with you what happened yesterday.  I was sitting on the couch cuddling Carter after his nap.  He loves to cuddle after his nap and if we don't with him he is sooo whiny!  Oh well I love it!  We were watching a realty show and the couple on the show were looking at houses and were finally in a good house and I think I made a sound like ohhh and the next thing I know Carter is chanting something.  I had to listen and think about it and I realized that he was saying "BUY IT!  BUY IT!!!"  over and over!  LOL!  So funny, he really is a real estate agent's son!!!!

I am quite excited the upcoming week is supposed to be quite hot!  What makes it even better is that we will be spending it at the cabin!  I am so looking forward to getting away and having some relaxation, and spending time at the hot beach!  :>

I hope that you will join us for this challenge it runs for two weeks until July 29th 11:59 pst!  Please check out the Wee Memories Blog for more details!  And to check out all of my fellow design team inspiration!
