Babies, Babies, Babies...

Apparently I am at that age where people are having babies... if you can't tell by the cards I've been making lately! I combined the giraffe from SU!'s Bundle of Joy with Papertrey's Mixed Messages.

For the Pink version - I used the flower centers of Women of Life (PTI) to match the polka dots from the ribbon ($1 ribbon from Michael's)

For the Blue Version, I kept it pretty simple.

Notice the coloring on the giraffes? You can definitely tell the difference between PTI Select Cardstock and regular white cardstock. It's hard to tell in the pictures... if you click on them, I think you get the super large version. I only have SU! Markers, that I find pretty easy to use to create shading and color variations but the PTI cardstock seems more vibrant.

Thanks for looking!

I discovered that one of our friends was pregnant... kekeke and I just had to send a card to congratulate her! I know she's battling the nausea & vomiting that comes with the 1st trimester, so I'm trying to keep her in my prayers.

I also case'd this from SCS but HAD to use my new PTI sets, ribbon and cardstock . When I say new, I mean new to me. I recently discovered PTI, and I feel like I have a ton of catching up to do. I used the ribbon around the whole card and tied it closed. I don't know if the baby stamp was the best choice but it was my only choice. :)

I had to cut out the circle w/ an exacto knife b/c my punch wouldn't reach and I used the blush blossom marker to outline & highlight the circle. For the message across the top, I used sentiments from Mixed Messages, masked the pieces I needed w/scotch tape and was able to come up with one long message. "ON" is from "ONE"!! :)

Thanks for looking!

Thank You

I thought I'd start out with something I made awhile back but still love... the picture quality & lighting aren't the best but you get the idea...

I made thank you cards for my co-workers who took me out to lunch for my birthday last November. I still see them up in some of their cubes and my eye is still drawn to the shape & color. I used "Oh, So Lovely " from Stampin Up! but the layout was case'd from SCS.

I've been inspired by all the creative people that I've been reading the past few months. I'm addicted to Papertrey Ink and Splitcoast Stampers and all these women have 'blogs'. So I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and give it a go. I take a bazillion pitures of the my 'creations,' might as well post them, no?

Hopefully I can get some readers but maybe this is more for me to keep track of everything I work on.
