Thanks from Hannah!

Here are a few pictures of Hannah's nursery and a Thank You card.

Her room is painted Pale Plum!

The rocking chair is the same chair that I had with my first son 11 years ago!

We still need to paint her name letters to hang on the wall. The hold up is that I'm not sure if I want to paint them purple or stain them the same color as the furniture. What do you think?

She won't go naked - that's for sure!

And now for the thank you card...

I used a Whisper White base and stamped the carriage from the Fun & Fast Notes set in Basic Black, and colored it in with a Pale Plum marker and Pretty in Pink marker. I ran the card stock through my Big Shot using the Polka Dot textures plate. The top strip is Pale Plum (of course). The greeting is from the Heard from the Heart set. I added two gems to give it a little something.

Hannah will be here soon!

Not much time for crafting these days. I've been MIA because we have been preparing for baby Hannah. There is a very real chance that she could be here this weekend!
I am so very excited to meet my baby girl, but so very scared too! We have been praying for her health and safe delivery. Last Friday we received some test results that caused some concern and decided to induce labor to help protect her and myself. So, if you would... please say a little prayer for us.

Sneak a Peek!

I made this card super quick for a friend's baby shower. We are due 2 weeks apart. It's quite funny how many looks we get when we go out together. Anyway...
Don't you LOVE this color? Yes, it is a new In-Color! It's called Rich Razzleberry!
Don't you LOVE the polka-dot ribbon? Yes, it is Rich Razzleberry too. And yes, it will be in the new catalog!
Don't you LOVE the elephant stamp? Yes, it is new too! It's called Animal Stories. Wait until you see the adorable DSP that coordinates with the Animal Stories set!! Soo cute!

Bear with me

I love this bear from the Under the Stars set! It's "grrreat!"
This is a clear envelope brag book that we made at Hostess Club. We used Sahara Sand card stock, Sweet Slumber DSP, and Very Vanilla card stock. For a tutorial on how to create your own brag book... go here.

Just bleach it!

Here's a card made at our Hostess night using the Inspired by Nature set. The set is currently on the Dormant List - but it will be back in the catalog in July! Woo hoo! I love this set!!
We used a So Saffron base, Basic Black mat that we scratched the edges of, and Basic Gray to actually stamp the image on.
To get the bleached image - just pour some fresh bleach onto a paper towel to create your "stamp pad" then "ink" the stamp with the bleach and stamp away!
This is quite a scarry technique if you've never tried it before. But it is so cool! I love how the Basic Gray turned So Saffron! You've got to try your favorite color - they all produce something different!
