Happy Monday Everyone!!
I'm very close to being ready for my country club show on Wednesday so thought I'd take a few minutes and create something to share here on my blog this morning!
I recently purchased a set of We R Memory Keepers 6x6 embossing folders called 'Next Level' and the dimension achieved is awesome! The set is called WAVE but the one looks like a quilted blanket so that's the one I chose to create with today.
An online friend is expecting her FIRST grandchild in November and it's a girl (how exciting) ... so that was the direction I went with for this soft quilted looking background.
The color on this card is actually PINK but for some reason my camera doesn't see pink ... it sees more of a peachy color ... ugh! I know it's a setting of some sort but I just don't have time to read that instruction manual right now so just know it is REALLY pink ... not peach! It's actually Stampin' Up 'Pink Pirouette' card stock (and the ribbon is bright pink ... not coral). LOL
Here's a peek at the inside:
The chair, the bows and the ribbon strip were all 'left overs' from other projects (love using up 'scraps' like this), I simply went through my book of Baby/Children dies and this is what I came up with. Yes, I have a separate book just for Baby/Children dies ... also a book for Leaves, one for Flowers, one for Hearts/Wedding, one for Squares/Rectangles, one for Circles/Ovals ... etc. etc. Some day maybe I'll share how I 'house' my dies and yes, I do have A LOT of dies! What a Lucky girl I am!!!
