Hello... I hope you've all been having a great week - I just back from camping, I feel rested - as I spept more than I usually do since there's nothing to do but relax! We usually go the same place every year, since it's never busy during the week and we like the peace and quiet. I love driving through Mennonite country since they always have fresh produce and cut flowers for sale by the side of the road - and they are always such a bargain! This time of year, Gladiolas are in full bloom, they are one of my favourite flowers, the only problem is that I have to sit with all these flowers between my feet until we get home (luckily it's a little more than an hour away). I got enough Gladiolas to make 8 bouquets and I got a pre-made bouquet and some sunflowers! My tables, desks, and counters all look so colourful and bright - I just love Glads! Enough of my ramblings about camping...
I hope you checked out the new holiday catalogue just released yesterday, it's pretty sweet... don't ya think?! I love it - and have purchased pretty much everything already (we'll not everything, but a lot!) now I just need some time with me, myself, and my stamps!!
I have a sweet share for you today featuring 'Baby, We've Grown'. I don't make too many baby cards, but I really love how this one turned out! I decided to stamp the cute bunny image 3 times, and use my blendabilities assortments of Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake and Old Olive. I used Daffodil Delight for the bunnies tummy and bow-ties. I fussy cut them out. I embossed a piece of Night of Navy, embossed it with the Large Polka dots textured impressions embossing folder, I attached it on an angle then trimmed the excess off.. no particular reason for the placement of this layer, but I like it! I stamped the Sweet Baby by combining the 'Oh Baby' and the 'Sweet Baby' stamps and using my Night of Navy Stampin' Write marker it allows me to do so. I punched it out with my 2-1/2" Circle Punch, layered onto some circles using the Circles Collection Framelits Dies, finished by adding some Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine and fraying the ends... It's no secret that I love baker's twine... so why not!? I hope you like it, have a sweet weekend!
