I am so thankful for longer afternoon naps so that get back to my stamping. That ONE short nap for a few weeks was just killing me and my stamps were just calling my while a toddler kept my attention. I feel like I did a really good job sticking to the Mojo Monday sketch this week.
The inspiration for this week’s came from the gift it went with. My friend Heather had a baby girl last week and I wanted to wait until we found out what it was to get a gift. I love the greens and yellows, but love shopping for gender specific clothes more. I used one of the onesies as my color/card inspiration. Isn’t it adorable??? I love how little the clothes are!
Here’s my card:
I also got to hold the new baby! It’s hard for me to remember when Taylor was that little, well actually she was never quite that little but pretty close. Baby E was so sweet and tiny. Plus I was jealous that Heather didn’t even look like she was ever pregnant! I think I have more of a
can’t believe it’s still there baby belly than she does! When I saw the giraffe I knew I had to grab my Wild About You stamp set to match it. I wish I had some animal print paper, but like the TE polka dot and striped paper. The background paper is double sided so I cut it in half and then flip one side over so that you saw both the dots and stripes. I used the theory of more is more on this card and had fun. First I added the piercing around the giraffe, then gave her some stickles/glitter on her polka dots, then added the bling to the corner. I might try this theory more often because it turned out cute. I wish you could see the sparkles better, so just turn your screen to get the full effect.
