Let Us Adore Him ~ Glitter, Sparkle & Shine!

Happy Monday morning friends!  Has it really been two weeks since my last post?  Time sure does fly by.  There's a new challenge over at Christmas Kickstart Challenge and the theme is "Glitter, sparkle & shine!"  What girl can resist that challenge??
 My card uses a sparkly reindeer donning a bright red scarf and a strip of glitter paper along the side.  I added some lovely plaid prints from Lawn Fawn in yummy Christmas colors and a heat embossed sentiment in white.

The printed papers were used so I could add this to the Double D Challenges "Pick A Pattern" challenge. 
I'll also be entering this card into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge  where it's always "Anything Goes.

There's still plenty of time to play along with all of these challenges.  If you click on the links below it'll take you directly to them.

Bees, Bees!

Hello friends ~ I've never felt that I was clever enough to play along with Darnell's talented ladies at the Twofer Card Challenge but I thought I'd give it a go this time around.  The theme is "Bees" and I've been wanting to play with this darling Happy Fall Y'all set from Honey Bee Stamps again.  
I created a "hello" baby card and a birthday card for the challenge.  Here's more info on my cards:

For the baby card, I started by cutting a rectangle using ECD Stitched Rectangles.  I think I use these rectangles on almost 90% of the cards I make.  I stamped patterned hexagon images from PTI's Happy Hexagons and then embossed the stamped panel with a cross stitch pattern embossing plate.  I stamped the happy little bees from Happy Fall Y'all and colored them in pink tones using Copic markers.  
I cut the Hello Honey Cuts Die out of white cardstock and blended it with Distress Oxide Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

For the next card I used the Bee Hive Card Dies to create this darling shaped card.  I've always wanted to make a pink bee hive and this was my chance!  It makes me think of cotton candy.  ;0) I used the Honey Bee Hive Stencils to add gradiant colored stripes on the bee hive. 

 I used one of the door dies to add a peek-a-boo door and decorated the card using more of those lovely sunflowers from the Happy Fall Y'all set.  The banner is cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs Banners.

There's plenty of time to play along with this challenge.  You can get there by clicking here.

I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:

BOY or GIRL...... Click HERE!

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day on Saturday when we had the gender reveal party for my daughter and son-in-love and if you're here for the results, here it is........  

It's a BOY!  
Their dog Royce was very happy to see that he'll have a little man human to love on, protect and play ball with.  They've already picked a name and it is just perfect.  Jackson James.  
Doesn't it have a sweet sound when you say it?

They chose to find out right along with everyone else so I love this picture of them looking at each other with surprise when they saw the blue powder shoot out of the canisters.

Now I get learn all there is to know about being a grandmother.  My eyes sting with tears at the excitement and joy of it all.

Here's a video, if you want to see that too.  

At any rate, 
Thanks for sharing in our joy with me today.  Your visits and comments always brighten my day.
