Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 3

Its me again... ok... I must admit that I'm getting a bit weary of the rain. It seems like its been raining forever these days. Halloween is in one more day and I'm excited to get the kids all dressed up. I'm also excited by the fact that its on a Saturday which means that Kevin will be home all day and we won't be rushing around after he would normally come home from work.

I am bumbed that Hunter won't get to wear his costume to school though. This will be the first year that they haven't been allowed to.

Anyway... back to the point of this post. It is another day of sneak peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps. So much good stuff has been shown and more to come (yay). Remember, everything will be available for purchase on the 1st... plus new products I'm sure. I'm always excited to see what Lori adds to her product line.

These are the sets being previewed today and you can see all the previous and today's stamp sets in full over on Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp.

Welcome to Parenthood * Mini Christmas Scriptures * Meowy Christmas * Just Chillin'

I just have two cards to share today using the stamp set called Welcome to Parenthood. What a great set... a story I think about in regards to me as a non parent and then becoming a parent is this one:

I used to work in a bakery located in a grocery store and I would watch moms and their babies and toddlers walk by everyday. I used to get so grossed out by all those babies and toddlers with those gross runny noses and the kids just sucking it up, wiping it across their faces. You know... they would have that dried alligator scale look across their face and their sleeves and/arms would be all gross.

I would think to myself, "Oh my gosh don't those moms wipe their kids noses... geesh!!"

Ha... well now as a mother, we all know that sometimes it doesn't matter how often you try to wipe noses and change shirts so on and so forth... it just doesn't work and you can't win that battle.

So back to the cards (lol). I paired this simple sentiment with Baby Charlie and I think made a cute combo.


And here is my second card to share. I went boy version for the 1st one so I went girl version for this one.

So go check out these fellow DT members that are sharing today as well.

Kim * Angela * Sarah * Candy * Linda A * Nancy * Tricia * Cassie * Stacy * Shawne * Tori * Wendy

Have a great day and make sure to come back for the final peeks tomorrow!

Oh what sweet cards! I love your story about how we never really know what it's like to be a mother until you have one of your own!
