My First CAS On Splitcoast!



Good morning ladies! Let me just tell you how this card came to be. Last night at around 6:30 my baby finally went to sleep after crying ALL day. She has had a very bad week with her colic. And I was very tired. So I had mountains of laundry, mess everywhere I'm ashamed to say so stupid me I think I'm going to just make some coffee and drink a couple of cups so I can get this mess up/clothes done. Well at 1:30 in the morning I was still laying in bed with the jitters getting a headache, ect... WAY TOO MUCH CAFFEINE! That was new coffee and apparently way stronger than my usual. So I thought maybe doing a quick card would pass the time while the caffeine ran out of my system and help calm my nerves, it worked and this is what I came up with. As late as it was the SCS CAS challenge was posted so I decided to play along and used that!

What a gorgeous CAS, Shawne! Is there any kind of card you can't do?! You're amazing, and I sure hope you were able to get some rest ;D

This card is just beautiful, but you poor girl! My son was a colicky baby too. I have all the sympathy in the world for you. I remember thinking I could never go back to work because no SANE person that wasn't his mother would watch him. Luckily I found an amazing women, but more importantly it HE stopped crying. I think it is the only time I have ever wished my kids bigger. I hope you get some rest and peace and quiet. I don't know HOW you do all you do.

Shawne, this is wonderful!! Just perfect! I feel for you and baby dear. I had a dd just like that. Two of them actually. My mom said she'd never seen a baby that could cry all day. Hah!!! Found out 16 years later that they had a problem with wheat. One also had a problem with milk... something to look into maybe!! :-)
