Moving Forward

Today is my weekly post day at Pink Paper Bakery! If you haven't checked out the multi-Demo blog, you should! Today I wanted to share with you, one great thing about Stampin' Up! I love being part of such a feel-good, caring company!

Stampin' Up! is a company that always takes pride in making a difference. Each year they design an exclusive stamp set that benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Moving Forward is one of those sets. With each Moving Forward stamp set that sells, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charity, in addition to the $100,000 annual gift.

I love the playful images of this stamp set. They just happen to go well with the Cloudy Day embossing folder I recently purchased from the Spring Mini catalog! I think this card makes a great baby boy card, or even a first birthday card.

 
 I popped up both the circle and the waves with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Irrelevant story time: Making a baby boy card makes me reflect on my not-so-baby boy. He was so cute, and sweet, and cuddly! Today, at age 16, Jayson is still cute, and sometimes sweet, but not so cuddly. He likes to communicate through his cell phone like every other teen out there. A couple days ago, he was across the street at his girlfriend's house. I received a text message from him. Here is our conversation:

J: Hey do u want to take me and Marley to taco bell
Me: LOL, no
J: Darn
Me: Do you want to vacuum the house?
J: No, lol
Me: Darn!
