Fun With My Cuttlebug!

Wow! It's sure difficult to find time to blog, let alone get any stamping done! Three days ago, we moved our "baby" out of his crib and into a big boy bed! He was a little nervous, but now he likes it. He keeps saying, "Big boy!" whenever he sees the bed!

Well, needless to say, we've had to start camping out outside his room to make sure he stays in the bed when it's nap time or bed time. We did that with our oldest for a few weeks until he learned that it wasn't free time to roam around the house! Noah seems to be learning pretty quickly. He only tried to get out the first night. Now he pretty much stays in bed looking at books until he's tired. Anyway, that eats up a lot of free time! I've decided that blogging once or twice a week is a more reasonable goal than every day!

So, I did get some time to play last night while my husband stood guard! :) My in-laws gave me a Cuttlebug for my birthday!!! I was so excited, and last night was my first chance to play with it. I went simple, and made this thank you card. The Tart & Tangy set just screams Bold Brights, so I pulled them out again for this one.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Artfully Asian
Ink: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Glorious Green, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Glorious Green, Whisper White
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swirly?), Stampin' Dimensionals, 1 3/8" Square Punch
