Vegas themed birthday party

My Pink Stamper is having a blog hop and the challenge is anything birthday.

For this challenge I made a sign for my father in law's surprise 60th birthday party.  We chose Vegas as the theme so I wanted to make something similar to the famous "Welcome to Vegas" sign.

Blogger slacker and a new card

It's been four months since my last blog post and I feel like the biggest slacker ever! I do have a few really good reasons............ well more like excuses.

We moved in the middle of January and It took us forever to unpack, organize and decorate our new home. After we were settled in and I was thinking I would have some free time for crafting I found out that I'm pregnant! It was totally unexpected and not planned at all but we're both very happy with the news and also extremely nervous. I put off crafting some more so that I could do some baby research and planning and figure out what I'm supposed to do for the next nine months. I've had pretty bad morning sickness for the last three weeks and have barely made it out of bed. For some reason I always thought that morning sickness was something that pregnant women occasionally got and that it would come and go. Needles to say I was shocked when I realized  it would be a constant all day every day type of thing for me. I was terrified that I would be one of those women who had it for almost their entire pregnancy. Luckily this week I finally started feeling like myself again and decided to make my husband an anniversary card and enter a couple challenges.

Monday was our two year wedding anniversary. We had a destination wedding in Vegas and this year more than ever I was dying to hop on a plane and have a relaxing weekend on the strip. Unfortunately I was stuck in COLD Chicago. Our wedding color was Tiffany blue and added the lime green to make the card look a little more masculine. Lol, I'm not sure if it worked I didn't want the card to be too fancy or girly but I couldn't resist using a little bling.
