TMS#139


(Today's 2nd post, please scroll down or click for Creative Card Crew post.  Thank you.)

Good Tuesday Morning!  Since it's Tuesday, that means I have another fun sketch to share with you from Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This is a fun one...I like the unique shape and the fact that you can make it CAS or jazz it up a bit.

We recently went on a little trip to get some stuff for our attic addition; I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a little bit of craft shopping too.  Do you think you could drive by your favorite craft store and not stop?   Not me!  I have always liked making baby cards and I couldn't pass up these pretty papers from the Doodlebug "Sugar and Spice" collection.  I used 3 of the papers here, but there are plenty more in my stash!  LOL  I bought a stash of the boy themed papers too....

There's very little stamping on this card; just the onesie, which I paper pieced.  I added a bit of pink glitter around the trim of the onesie just to give it a touch of sparkle...after all, most girls like a bit of sparkle!  For embellishing, I added a touch of grosgrain ribbon and some Doodlebug buttons from my stash that matched perfectly.  The finished card size is 7 1/2" x 4".

Image: PTI Bitty Baby Blessings
Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury (this is NICE stuff!), PTI Dark Chocolate, Doodlebug DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Black Marker

Very pretty! The buttons on the squares are the perfect touch. Really love the new Doodlebug papers, too! The glitter on the edges of the onesie are the perfect finishing touch.

It is an amazing card. I love it and love the papers and buttons you used. Beautiful card. I bought the stamp set because of your cards you make with it and it hasn't seen ink so far. I think you outdid yourself on this one.
