Her sister jumped into high gear (with my sister grumbling and wondering why this had to happen on THIS particular weekend--she was SO clueless!), and a lovely baby shower was planned for Sunday. How fun to be able to participate; I got to see my own daughter and grandkids, we "showered" at a lovely tea house in Old Town Pasadena, and I got to enjoy watching my sister celebrating her daughter and grandson-to-be. A lovely time had by all...
I love Moon Baby! I figured I didn't need another baby stamp when this came out, but the moment I saw it, something clicked, and I had to have it. I've now used it several times, and am feeling like it's a "keeper" of a set.
I stamped him on Whisper White card stock, colored him with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen and carefully snipped him out. The umbrella was stamped on the Bermuda Bay print from the Brights Paper Stack, and paper-pieced on the cut-out umbrella.
The clouds are from Weather Together, and were cut with the matching framelits, Umbrella Weather.
And of course, a matching envelope is imperative:
and oh-so-easy with the Envelope Punch Board! This is a "must have" when you are making your own custom-sized cards! A coordinating piece of DSP from the Brights Paper Stack made the perfect carrier for my cute card.
Shower done, we headed for home...a long journey but one with happy memories of a wonderful weekend!
