Hey there! Thought I’d pop in here since it’s been nearly a month…eek! I didn’t mean for it to be so long, but we had both my and my son’s birthdays and festivities involved, a fallen grandma and her move to a new skilled nursing home, tons of work, moving of a store, etc. Life just always seems to get busy, and I am too lazy to come upstairs and turn on my laptop! lol Before I show you any goodness, I thought I’d let you know that you need to mark your calendars for Monday…we’re having a new release hop with Lil’ Inker Designs!
So here’s a little ditty I made up for one of my husband’s closest friends. I gave her a version of this card when she was pregnant and she wanted one for a baby shower she was attending. We card makers can’t make the exact same card for someone though, can we?? My go-to image is this Stamping Bella girl. She’s just so fun to add dimension to
The background paper is inked up with PTI’s Background Basics Tin Types – one of my all time favorite sets! It gets a ton of use. The white dots are acrylic paint. Here’s a little detail of the dimension
I always pop up the gift bag with a little tissue paper sticking out and the belly. The little bears nose has a big old glob of Enamel Accents. While I was at it, I decorated the inside too.
I thought I’d share a few pics from the fun I got to have on World Card Making Day. I didn’t take pics till the very end because we were all laughing and talking and eating and just having a great time. Plus everyone was so intent on working. I only got two images colored! lol
I’m going to link all their names here so you can check out all their fabulous blogs. I had to pinch myself a few times – it was so surreal! All that talent in one room!
Our little soiree was hosted by the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps diva herself, Michele Gross (THANK YOU!!!). The rest of the ladies I will link to as they are in my Colorado Crafters feedly folder. Wida Miller, Danielle Flanders, Tenia Nelson, Kim Singdahlsen, Carisa Zglobicki, Annette Allen, Lee Murphy, Noelle McAdams, Ceal Pritchett, our honorary Coloradoan, Stacey Schafer, and Vivian Masket who doesn’t blog (GASP! WHAT?!?) Here’s a shot of all of us
We’re hoping to make these get togethers a regular thing, so I’m considering myself a lucky girl! Hope you’re all having a super day!! See you back here soon
