(ETA: I finally got my sample finished, check it out here! And I'm updating this to include a photo of the blog candy goodies. Hope you'll play this week!! To be included in the drawing, please post before 9pm CST Wed Feb 11. If you don't have a blog, you can post to Splitcoast using keyword FCCC, or email me your photo!) I cannot believe it's already been a whole year since my sweet baby girl was born!! Boy time sure flies when you're blogging and having fun! :-) And little did I know on that happy day one year ago what a little source of card inspiration Courtney would prove to be! It wasn't until she was about three months old (and I had finally emerged from the newborn fog!) that I had my little brainstorm to start making cards inspired by her outfits! I thought it was only fitting that on her first birthday, I celebrate by having a big cyber birthday celebration here on my blog!! Unfortunately this isn't going completely as I had hoped - true to form, I procrastinated until the last minute to make my card - little did I know that I'd end up with a very upset boy with a 103 fever tonight, who only wanted to be held by Mommy! He's finally asleep on the couch now, so I snuck away to write this up! I gave up on making and posting a card of my own tonight, because during a brief moment when I thought I could leave Carter with Daddy and go into the stamp room, I dropped my camera on the tile floor and broke it!!! I actually cried about a broken camera. I am so upset, I can't believe I did that! So... I may be unable to share cards for quite a while until I figure out the camera situation! But as luck would have it, all is not lost - I happened to ask some of my favorite stamping ladies to join me in this celebration!! I sent them a photo of Courtney in this outfit, and they set to work on what I have no doubt are FABULOUS creations! I can't wait to see them myself in the morning! So go and check them out with me:

And what's a birthday celebration without presents?? Play along with the challenge this week, and post back here letting me know you did, and your name will go into the hat for some sweet and delicious blog candy!! I'm kicking myself for not taking a photo of it earlier, but let me assure you it is GOOD! Hopefully I'll be able to update this post with the info tomorrow, but I can tell you it includes Life is Sweet from Our Craft Lounge, some MFT cupcakes, Mimi's Bake Shoppe from Denami Designs, some 6x6 shares from the Basic Grey Cupcake line, and a bunch of yummy embellies that are perfect for any cupcake lover! (includes Doodlebug Designs sugar coating glitter, Fun Flock, MM Love Notes stick pins, bling, cupcake brads, misc ribbon and a Studio G cupcake set) You can enter as many times as you'd like, but you have to make a card to get into the drawing. If you've thought about playing in the past but never found the time, this week is the week to do it! And of course I hope to have my beloved regulars join me in celebrating Courtney's birthday!! By the way, if you're new here, you can check out all of the past weeks here, and fyi there's a reason for this cupcake theme - I called Courtney "my little cupcake" while I was pregnant, and it stuck. :-) Alright I better get some sleep so I can be a rested Mommy to actually celebrate with Courtney tomorrow (or perhaps take her brother to the pediatrician, we'll see!). Thanks for stopping by today and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
