Bugaboo Winter Penguin

Hello all and Happy Tuesday!  So, my mom has been in Rome.  She looks after Sprout during the day while we work.  That means I took last week off and my DH took this week off to watch the baby.  I thought: this will be a breeze and I'll get some crafting, sewing, and house cleaning done.  Well, that wasn't exactly what happened.

1) Sprout fell off the bed - again
2) she doesn't sleep, so I now have a million ways to entertain an 8 month old for HOURS at a time
3) my house is a DISASTER
4) my DOG ATE my CAT (no joke) - May Sid rest in peace
5) said dog got out and may possibly be poisoned - he's been sick for days
6) Friday I had a mini melt down

So to all you SAHM's - I applaud you for being able to keep it all together!!  And here is a pic of the little monster who brings me such stress!!
Today I'm also sharing a card using a rather new release over at Bugaboo Stamps.
I've actually made a few Christmas cards so far!  So I'm happy about that.  This little guy is Winter Penguin - can't wait to get the rest of the collection!

I went with a rather CAS look, trying to use his skis to work with the angle.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes (such a GREAT set!).

First off, let me say the card is cute! Great job on that!

More importantly, Sprout is A-DOR-ABLE, I am a SAHM, and truthfully, some days are easier than others! My DH does sometimes wonder what I have accomplished, but for the most part he is very understanding!

ROFL... You are so funny, how on earth did the dog eat the cat???? Look at Sprout's precious little face, you wonder how they can become little monsters.. Lol, but they are so so sweet when they are laying there asleep. :-)
Well you will definitely appreciate your mom...
I love your card, (darn I forgot what CAS means..), beautiful coloring (always)
