Good afternoon! I have a card and then some chit chat for you today---I made the card already this morning at 7:30, but didn't have any time to post it until now! You know, kids, breakfast, etc., etc.,!This is for this week's Mojo Monday sketch over at http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/. And, since this is the first week of the month, it is a prize week! I always try to make super awesome cards, hoping they will pick me and I can get some free stamps! I have a feeling that this one is a winner...:)
My friend from church just had a baby boy on Saturday (her second). Her first child is a girl, and was born 1 day before my first child (also a girl). We've gotten to know each other pretty well, so it was exciting to hear they had their baby (also a boy, just like our second!). There is also going to be some kind of crafty gift to go with the card, I just haven't really decided what yet.
The paper is all Crate Paper Hamptons collection. The circles are a die cut, as is the blue strip underneath the ribbon. I wanted to tie the ribbon in a bow, but didn't have enough! What you see is pretty much what I had!
The onesie, teddy bear, and "I'm here" are from Gina K Designs- Wee Tees. I LOVE this set! I stamped the onesie, cut it out, and then sponged ranger distress ink to give it a little depth. I stamped the bear on the onesie, and then on scratch brown paper. I used my Versamark pen on the scratch paper one, and then heat embossed it with clear ep. It's so shiny and cute! I popped the bear and the onesie up with dimensionals. Good luck to me!!
On a personal note, we found Myron a load this morning for tomorrow to go to York, PA. I'm so happy we got a good load- again, for the second week in a row! I'll just have to dispatch tomorrow but then I'm home free!!
He had some time this morning, so he put up my clothesline. I really miss not having a clothesline, so the crafty, dear husband that he is made me one!! It's really just some scrap pipe and then line we got from Bomgaars, but it's so beautiful!! I can hang clothes out to dry and save money and not heat up the house! Awesome! I'll post a picture when it's fully complete.
Have a happy Monday!
