Toby with Roses

Look who found some mojo and created a card today. I had to do something to take my mind off of things, LOL. We are having carpet replaced in 3 of our rooms tomorrow: dining, master and nursery. I'm anxious to get it over and done with. It's our last big project to complete before we prepare for the arrival of our little Panda. I've been telling my belly for the past couple weeks that it can't make any big plans until we get the carpet in. So far it has kept up its end of the bargain :) However, this means we have to move everything out of those 3 rooms before the installers get here in the morning. Fun! I'm feeling pretty useless as I watch Ross and our nephew haul stuff around. I'm use to jumping in and lending a hand so it's kinda driving me nuts to sit back and watch. I'm looking forward to getting everything back in it's place though. Then we can start putting up baby stuff: changing table, playyard, etc. and getting ready for the big day!!! Anyhoo, on to the card. This is another Wild Rose Studio image that I picked up from All That Scraps. Don't you just want to squeeze him? I covered all of the roses with Stardust Stickles because honestly who wouldn't love a bouquet of sparkly roses? I also raised his little flappy ears with dimensionals. Check it out - I used a corner rounder! I always forget until it's too late to pull that sucker out and round some corners so I was mighty proud of myself for doing so today! I followed Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 118 for the layout! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!!!!
