Off to School?

German Phrase of the Day: Dann geh zum Arzt. = Then go to the doctor. I will be - tomorrow that is for my 21 week "big" ultrasound! I can't wait to see how this little guy is doing. :)

And here's another card with THIS little guy Cooper! I really like his name, but not sure my husband would go for naming his son after a stamp!! I made this card for my friend Lisa's little boy starting school. She wanted a card mostly black and white (since he's all into the pirate theme lately) but a splash of color. I colored cooper brown hair since her boy (one of Julia's best friends and future husband) has brown hair. As usual, I colored him with my prismacolor pencils and used some gingham ribbon trying to to make it too girly. I think it worked out well!

Don't forget all the exciting things going on over at Paper Pretties now, there's still a sale on ribbon slides and ric rac, in addition to the Cutie Pie contest, and another release coming on August 1st! Oh yeah...and if you want to get Howdy Girlfriend (our little cowgirl Sophia) before everyone else you'd best mosie on over to the Paper Pretties site and join the Stamp of the Month Club before July ends!

Have a wonderful day everyone, and I'll be back tomorrow - possibly with a peek at MY little guy! :-)

  2. Oh yay! How exciting! I am so looking forward to that feeling! You will have to let us know how it goes! :D

    Your card is adorable by the way! I love your coloring and the simplicity of it. I also think it's great that you have your daughter's husband picked out! Haha! I have already been talking to my girlfriends about planning our pregnancies accordingly so that we have husbands/wives for our children while they are still in the womb. Hehe.
