One of the girls at work is expecting her first child, a daughter. So that got me thinking, and when I combined those thoughts with my personal challenge to dig out and use things I've been hoarding or ignoring, this card was the result. The image is from SU's retired New Little Someone, and I stamped it onto PTI white with basic brown ink. I used my watercolor crayons and an aquapainter to color, and sponged the edges with close to cocoa ink. Wouldn't it be great if PTI came out with their own shade of brown? I digress. I matted the image onto both close to cocoa and sweet blush stock then distressed the edges. The base of the card is actually PTI white and I layered on some 'Cuttlebugged' close to cocoa and a scrap of PTI pink patterns paper. My sewing machine was still out, so I stitched the little border on the bottom half. The sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages (love that set). To finish it off I wrapped it in some chocolate twill I ordered from Ellen Hutson LLC, and added the button and mini diaper pin. Done! And now I'm off to watch part of the Phillies game...Cole Hamels is pitching and that really makes the husband happy.
What makes me happy is the fact that you stopped by. Thanks for visiting.
Until next time...M
