Thought of God

I just love babies, and I realized Sunday, as I was surrounded by 4 pregnant friends, that I needed to add to my baby card supply QUICKLY! So here is a sweet baby girl card. I just love my girls, they inspire me. I hope to inspire them, too! Babies are such a blessing!

I used a new knit flower from Stampin' Up, with an aged gold brad in the center, colors of paper were blush blossom, close to cocoa, and whisper white. Inks used were pretty in pink (Houndstooth background) and close to cocoa (Wordsworth sentiment stamp). I distressed all of the paper edges. Added a little brown ribbon to pull it all together!
For my facebook friends, I'm hoping to add a baby pic today. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Blessings everywhere!

It seems like lately someone around me is having a baby, or is sharing the news of a baby to come! What a blessing! I love being a mommy, there's really nothing like it.

This card was mostly inspired by the felt flowers that I recently purchased from Stampin' Up. The colors are definitely in right now, I combined the large brown flower with the small blue one and tacked them together with an antique copper brad. Striped paper and a scalloped edge on the right side, backed with some chocolate chip paper. I love this bunny from A New Little Someone by Stampin Up, which I watercolored using Blue Bayou, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, and Barely Banana. The "baby blessings" stamp from Wordsworth is one that I tend to go back to again and again, because that's exactly what I think babies are!

Thanks for coming to look! I need to make an anniversary card for my husband before Friday!

In celebration of spring which is almost here... we think... I created a spring-inspired card. I used a sketch from Taylor's blog, and did it the weekend of her challenge, but just finally took a picture of it and blogged it. I love my smile stamp from Wordsworth.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll try not to wait another 3 weeks before I post again!
