Good Monday evening to you.
We had a great Easter weekend with our dear family and friends + as an icing on the cake, we had some beautiful sun shine, which made most of our snow and ice disappear! . Oh my.. how I love the heat of the sun. The days went by way to quick, but I am sure that was a good thing. :)
When I came home I checked my email and there it was .. I received another Cut Above Award from the Paper Players Challenge 'girls'. Now what about that? My last card I entered in for the PP Challenge #43, they liked! loved! I can't tell you how thrilled I was about receiving the Award! Again it felt like icing on the Monday Morning-cake. :)
This is what Anne Marie Hille from Stampin' Anne had to say about my Elephant card. She is the sweetest thing! Really. (Hi Anne.. thanks for your beautiful and encouraging words about my card.. You also make gorgeous cards, but you are also so sweet and talented with your words! Thank You!)
Okay there we go!
- I just loved Pauline's adorable Elephant card with the fun mix of colors. The little popped up ear and the tiny 'peanut' tag were the perfect additions to her clean and simple design. such a sweet card to welcome a little peanut to the world. Congratulations on being my pick for a Cut Above this week.
Anyway... I am getting side tracked here.
This morning I had some time on my hands and created this baby card for the Paper Players Challenge #44. I know, what is it with that urge to create baby cards lately. Please don't ask me to answer that one. I really have no idea!
I inked up for the first time my new Stampin Up Baby Bundle Stamp set. (#120576 - $24.95. This set has 16 different images) Oh I can see myself using this one over and over. The 'baby sky' is the limit with this set!
I wanted to make a little Whisper White card stock dresser with a cute bear sticking out. Well.. it totally worked. Oh how fun! I used my round SU tab punch (#119864 - $23.95) at the bottom of the dresser. It just needed a bit of fancy-ness there. Do you recognize half of the tab punch. I love it.
To finish it all off I added one of those gorgeous Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric Brads from Stampin Up (#121880 - $8.95). These are available in the Mini Catalogue for only a couple of more days.
Cute cute cute! I hope it will inspire you as well.
Well.. The night is still young.. and my house is still in need of a clean up.. So guess where I am heading too.
Inky hugs, Pauline
