Stampin’ and Makin’ Cards
Hubby is gone to his trade show so I’ve been making a mess of our counter space and making cards! I brought out all my supplies and they’re littering the place, but since he’s gone, I don’t have to clean them up. That makes me happy and boosts my creativity.
I’m certainly not happy that he’s gone, just about the mess thing. It’s my mess and I love it.
This card is for a couple, some friends of ours from church. They’ve been trying and trying to have a baby and were finally blessed. They’re gonna pop here any moment (she’s due the 15th) so I made them a card, and can you tell I’m pretty sure it’s a boy. I’ve had that inclination from the beginning but the other day Todd was talking about his baby and said “He… it!” Yeah, like I didn’t catch that… sure! So they’re getting a blue card though it’s more of a soft teal mixture. The stamps and craft paper are by Stampin’ Up! and the colors are Baja Blue, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip. I absolutely love these colors together so much that…
I made another one with the same color scheme! This time it is for a friend who has been giving me tubs and tubs full of hand-me-down clothes for Annie. She has two girls, one in first grade and the other in kindegarten. Jenni has been supplying me from the very beginning and I am very grateful to not have to shop for such a quick growing baby.
Sure, I buy her little things here and there that I can’t pass up but for the most part Jenni has me covered.
And here are the sister cards side by side. What a happy pair.
