Some new cards finally!

Hey yall. Sorry I haven't been around in a while. I made some cards a few weeks ago but I'm just now having a chance to post them. Not sure if I've shared this with my blogging friends yet, but we have baby #3 on the way & I'm feeling years older than normal. A few weeks ago I was sick in bed with the flu. While curled up in teh bed with a quilt my mom made, I was inspired to make a few quilt cards. Here's the first one, which is based on one of the quilt blocks.
I had intended to use pinks & greens although my actual quilt was purple & green, but this paper just looked perfect. Next I decided to make a basic 9 patch quilt, which reminds me of my Granny.
Last I have an odd card. I really wanted to use the black & cream toile paper I had. It didn't turn out how I expected, but I kinda like it. Not sure what I'll use it for, but I'm sure an occasion will present itself.

This evening Jason is with the youth for the weekend so the boys and I went to Burger King for dinner (which Jason despises) and now we're snuggled in the bed watching Despicable Me. Anthony has the sweetest little giggle and he has almost lost his breath a couple of times laughing so hard. Joey had been quite angry with me lately but he has been an absolute sweetheart this evening. This 3rd grade attitude is quite difficult for me to handle with my lack of patience & exhaustion lately, so I'm very happy everyone is getting along tonight. We've got our first soccer games in the morning so Jason is gonna skip some of the youth events to come watch the kiddos play. Thanks for coming by the check out my new creations and hopefully I'll be back with more soon. I've got some great ideas in my head. We'll see if I can get them out on paper. Good night!

First congrats in baby no. 3. That is such a blessing. Bad to be sick when pregnant tho. Despicable Me is one of those movies that makes everybody laugh. Thank goodness it helped to lighten some tension. The cards are fabulous. The toile one is beautiful.
