That spells Gloria! And Hubby has been singing that song since 11:30 pm last night. You see...

Jazz had her baby! A beautiful DARK baby girl. A tiny little girl! I floating right now! We have 5 baby girls running around here now! And all are healthy!

I am sorry the photographs are slightly fuzzy, my camera kept fogging up. But I think you can still see her beauty. Jazz is a wonderful Momma. For those following my babies, Gloria is a full sister to last years Cortez, and she looks a lot like her older brother did as a baby, but maybe a tad bit darker.

I got some photos of Irene yesterday as well... but I will save those for the weekend.

Now I do have a card to show, got to work on it between checking on Jazz. It is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge, I hadn't seen the blog when I made my card. I couldn't get it to come up for some reason last night, but did find the theme on one of the DT blogs. This morning when I got on I had to laugh at how much mine is like Shary's card. Great Minds again Shary! I used my frilly window stamp and my Alota sofa for the inside of my living room scene. The "wallpaper" is Daisy D's paper. I created a floor by using brown card stock and stamping it with a wood grain background stamp. The sofa is stamped on a piece of Daisy D's pattern paper as well. I colored the window and the pretty Tilda with my Copics and cut everything out with my Fiskar's Fingertip Craft knife. The sentiment is from Rubberstamp Tapestery, with a couple of flower stumps as well. I was going for a sort of Embroidery kind of look. Hubby loved this card, said it was his favorites. Wow ... that means a lot!

Oh my sooooo much to do today! Today is my first of the month crop weekend... midnight tonight and all day to midnight Saturday. Wowser I may need some jolt tonight! After staying up two nights checking on Irene to be born... then Gloria last night. It has been a long week. But it was all worth it... two beautiful girls this week... someone pinch me!

Hugs and-
