InStyle Stamps Over the Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway!!!

Happy Hump Day!!!
I've got another sick lil one, sigh... just when things were clearing up, now our 3yo is sick; and it takes a lot for this lil guy to be so tuckered out to not only nap once, but three times yesterday! I was so worried that he had the flu that I didn't leave his side for more than 2 seconds, but the doc confirmed it's just a double ear infection and virus - we're pros at handling that! So, with a lot of patience and prayer, he'll be fine in a couple of days :)
Thanks to all of you who have sent much lovely thoughts, comments and prayers our way :*)

Ok, moving on to some fun stuff :)

OTHDBCGA was started to give a little boost to get us over hump day. It occurs on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of the month.

This month’s challenge is to create a New Year's themed card or project using an InStyle Stamp image. If you don't have an image, please click on my link in the upper left hand corner of my blog and you will receive 5% off all your orders ;)

I'm so sorry to hear that one of your babies is sick. :( No fun! Hope he is better soon. There is just too much fun to have this time of year.

On another note, your card had me picking my jaw up off the floor! It is beyond cute!!! So many great details. I truly love everything about it; from the paper to your mad coloring skills and the ever so cute little clocks. You really knocked this challenge out of the park! Great job!
