I can grow people...



Just a quick post here....  I want to share a card I made for a co-worker who is expecting her third child in September.  She is very large (and has been for months) and work is getting hard for her.  I thought maybe I could make her laugh and brighten her day.  I want to let her know that she looks great...she really does!  She wears the cutest clothes, accessorizes beautifully, and always looks like a true fashionista.

JJ is colored with pencils and I've accented her "bump" with an arrow embellished with Swarovski flatbacks.  I had a bit of DP left over, so I thought I would embellish the envie too.  I am hoping Katie likes her little surprise!



Image/Sentiment: Bugaboo
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Melon Mambo, American Crafts DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT Die-namics "Lead the Way" Die, Quic Kutz "Blossom" Alphabet Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I entered the card and envelope in the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  What fun they were!  I have never played along before, but I will for sure again.  The sketch is from Papertake Weekly...I loved it, and will use it again for sure.

Thanks for stopping by!
