Good morning and wooo hooo it's Friday!! Today is a extra special Friday! Wanna know why?? I'm guest designing for Emma at My Creative Time!! I was super excited to be asked and before I get started with the details of my card let me say a HUGE THANK YOU to Emma for this opportunity!!
I'm also going to say SORRY for neglecting my little blog for sooooo long! I'm so happy that you're here and still following me!!! Thank you for hanging in with me! I felt I needed to step back and away from crafting for awhile. I have to admit I was totally burnt out and when I realized the fun was no longer there I knew it was time for a break! This doesn't mean that I am completely giving it up just taking time to enjoy life right now. Our grandson's are growing so fast and they are keeping us pretty entertained! Instead of staying cooped up in the house, I'm actually getting out and enjoying summer! I feel better than I've felt in years! My best friend and I walk every morning and I go swimming at her house when I can! I could go on and on with what all has occupied my time but I'm sure you are ready to get on with what brought you here...my card!
I got the pleasure of playing with the set, Hello Baby! These little animals are just TO CUTE!!! I used the little onesie die that's included in the set and decided to use it to do my stamping on. I started out with the animals and done those by masking each one as I went. After I had them stamped, I replaced their masks and used the polka dot heart from the set, Puffy Hearts Just For You. I thought it would be fun to add shades to the little animals! I used the ones from the set, Winter Snowman Dies and added glossy accents. The sentiments are from the Hello Baby set :) I cut the onesie again using some fun foam for some dimension. The paper is a older set from Close To My Heart called Baby Cakes. I've been hoarding it and decided it was time I used it lol! I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More on the polka dot background paper. I know it's a super CAS card but I think it turned out really cute and especially for how rusty I am!! I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back soon guest designing again for Emma's August release! Have a AWESOME weekend my friends! Big Hugs, Leanne
