It's a boy! & Valentines Weekend in NYC

Good morning friends! Life is finally calming down some. Company is gone, trip to NYC is over and I'm back in the craft room once more. I have a baby shower this weekend so I finally had the opportunity to use my New Arrival cart that I've had forever and never once used it. There are so many cutesy baby things on it it was really hard to decide which one to do. I finally decided on the little onesy. We know the little one is a boy so blue is the color. The onesie and duck is from New Arrival. I cut 2 blue-front and back and then a 3rd in white and cut it down to make the top pattern. Both pieces were run thru my Cuttlebug. I put the duck thru my Xyron and then coated it with yellow glitter flocking. The beak was colored orange and covered with Glossy Accents to give it dimension. The bottom of the bodice was decorated with a MS punch to add a little more texture. A computer generated greeting was adhered to the back layer and the two layers were attached with an eyelet using my Crop-a-Dile Big Bite. Just loved e finished product.!!

We had a wonderful Valentines Weekend in NYC. We stayed in my nephews girlfriend mothers apartment on the 32nd floor of her complex. It was facing the Hudson River and the shores of New Jersey. From the bedroom you could see Lady was just beautiful. We shopped a little and ate a lot and trust me I didn't count weight watchers points either! It was sunny but VERY cold

Weight Watchers Nightmare!
and windy but that didn't stop us from walking the city and seeing the sights. We just had to stop at CRUMBS where they sell the most beautiful cupcakes ever. After 20 minutes or so of deliberating we choose our goodies and with forks in hand took off for Bryant Park directly across the street, found a table and dug in! Yes...22  frigid degrees and we are devouring cupcakes in the park.We don't look as tho we care do we?
