My daughter was baptized yesterday.

We had a family dinner afterward, and I made these toppers for the cupcakes.
The corrugated paper is Melon Mambo and Regal rose Designer Series Paper.  The fronts are Whisper White card stock with the H from the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set stamped in Melon Mambo.

I added a little bling with the Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents.

I woke up this morning wanting to fiddle in My Digital Studio, and then remembered...

It's Tuesday!

New digital downloads are one of my favorite things.

Just look at these chubby little guys!

You can find all of the latest digital downloads for My Digital Studio here.
My sister just had a baby boy!

Of course I had to make her a gift.

She had mentioned wanting some thank you notes to give for dinners brought to them and other kindnesses, so I set to work and made these;

Just a simple little note to say thanks...

in the brightest of primary colors, with a cute little monkey

because new baby Emmett is a cute little monkey.

The colors are Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point (all from the Brights collection) and the ink is Chocolate Chip.  
The striped and polka-dotted papers are Designer Series Paper - did I mention there's a GREAT deal on DSP right now?  Buy 3 packs, get 1 FREE! 

Oh my goodness!  I totally forgot to share my big MDS project with you!  It was actually very easy to do, but I wanted to wait until they'd been mailed to family members before I posted it here.
My baby is getting baptised!  I made these invitations with MDS, and I couldn't be happier with them!

Its Tuesday again, and that means new My Digital Studio downloads!  

This week's batch has a lot of Autumn themed stamps, and a whole set of stamps with 
sentiments of gratitude.  
Perfect for Thanksgiving! (Its only 14 weeks away, you know...)

My favorite this week is Bright Blessings.  Its perfect for thank you cards, which are some of my favorites to make.

Here's a fun birthday card I recently made:

I used yarn (because I had it on hand), but I think Baker's Twine would look better!

I put Crystal Effects on the balloons to give them some shine and depth.

The clouds are the cupcake top from the Create a Cupcake stamp set.

Remember the mystery MDS project I mentioned yesterday?  Well, I'm going to show it to you on Tuesday!  Yay!  I'm so excited to share it with you!  

I love how easy MDS makes it to make amazing things!

We're pretending its Tuesday, just for a minute.

...and Tuedsday means new MDS downloads!

here's my favorite for the week
I love the Digital Kits because they're such a good deal!  You get stamps, paper, punches, embellishments - all for a very reasonable price!

I'm sorry this is late - I was absorbed all day yesterday in taking some adorable pics of my beautiful daughter and making them into some amazing MDS projects (I'll share these another time.)
