I was chatting with my sister last night getting her opinion on which card to post today and she expressed an interest in cardmaking with me. I would love that, she has tried many times to draw me into her digital world. Alas I fight a good fight and she as only managed to seize a finger or two in her efforts. I love her digital images, and scrapbook kits they are wonderful and my sister has this amazing talent but I have to say I love the glue and glitter on my fingers when I card make. I can't feel the gritty little mess through a computer monitor, it does not help that I really don't love my computer at the end of the day after troubleshooting for others all day. Thus said, I did use some digital papers for some of my Christmas cards, my printer was not happy with me when I printed them out :) but at the end of the day I was.
Enough of my gibberish, on with the card.
This card was made over 2 months ago, I had most of it made with the exception of the name. One of my best friends was expecting so I was all prepared with the card and a treasure filled box to send. She had at that time narrowed down the baby names to either Haley or Maya so I printed out a little square for each and... well her sweet little peanut was welcomed as Raina. After my little spiel above, I thank my computer, Microsoft Publisher and A Yummy Apology font for the re-print. This was my week of onesie love.
Cardstock: Burgundy/Purple card stock (unknown company), Designer Paper came in a slab from Costco (sorry it has been forever since purchased)
Stamp: Is actually a clipart from Microsoft, Heidi Grace designs Clear Stamps Urban Acres Blvd
Accessories: Forever in Time Sticker Trenz (self adhesive ribbon), Paper flowers (unknown company), Making memories Button brad, Martha Steward glitter marker, Judikins Diamond Glaze
I am still trying to talk my husband to take over camera duties, so I apologize for the darkness of the image, it really does not show the little spits of glitter (again with that sparkly stuff).
Have a great day,
