Birthday Card!

It's been a while since I've blogged, but just to catch you up on the happenings around here... My youngest daughter Alexandria was born on December 9th of 2010! The past couple of months we've been adjusting and truly enjoying having her here! Her big brother Roman, and big sister Miya, have welcomed her with open arms are amazing with her. They are big helpers! Things are super busy and with Spring in the air, I can imagine things will continue to get even busier! My husband's amazing and I couldn't do it without him! He's very supportive, even when it comes to my crafting time. :)
As most of you can relate, I am way behind on scrapbooking. But, I have big goals to scrap away and to make as many cards as I can this year. I have continued to follow blogs and check in on them ever now and then. I am planning on participating in more blog hops and challenges, so stay tuned for that. I love seeing what others create and being inspired by their creations! I hope Rebecca and I will be able to get together to scrap and make cards soon.
Here's what I made this week. I hope to have more to share soon!

I am so excited about this card! I found this great, step by step tutorial at I have been wanting to make a "swing card" for some time now and I just hadn't decided what to do with it. I'm still experimenting with it, but I think my first one turned out pretty good. My mother-in-law's birthday is this weekend, so this one's for her!
