Happy Anniversary, Me!

Hi friends!! Sorry I've been away so long... We've been dealing with a sick baby for several days now, and I've been exhausted and had a permanent attachment (my baby who has not wanted to do anything but be held.) It has been so sad... we feel so helpless watching our little one be so miserable, and we are unable to help him! He's had trouble breathing, and sleeping. He is actually playing today, and taking naps, so I STAMPED!!!

This is one of my favorite color combinations: Pixie Pink and Wild Wasabi. I'm so sad that Wasabi is retiring. I will miss it! I used a blender pen and smooshed ink pad lids to color the tree, which is from Unity's awesome July kit of the month. I love how the word "friends" shows up in the tree over and over. I highlighted those in pink, to make them pop, and I added lots of pink bling too, I think to be either flowers or berries. I'm not sure if you can see them in the picture, but they are in the center of all the three-leaf clusters.

It is also my husband's and my 8th wedding anniversary. Of course, with baby sick, we are not doing anything, but it is still amazing to me that 8 years have gone by already!!!

Hopefully I can stamp again soon, and it the baby will be even better next time! Until then, take care, and happy stamping!

Stamps: Unity June and July kits of the month
Cardstock: Pixie Pink, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Ink: Staz on Black, Pixie Pink, Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Wild Wasabi ribbon, oval punches, dimensionals, blender pen, bling

This is so pretty. I really like the way you colored the tree. I just received my Unity KOTM in the mail, but haven't had a chance to ink it up yet. Great Job!

Happy anniversary! And I'm glad the baby's feeling better. It's such a relief when they finally start playing and acting like themselves again.
