I just got a call from the high school where I sub that our PE teacher and his wife and expecting their new baby girl today! What a wonderful journey they are about to begin. It seems like such a long time ago that my 8 and 10 year olds were babies. Ahhh, that new baby smell. Anyway, this card was commissioned by a teacher friend for the special occasion. I'm using a Wordsworth stamp called Baby. I just love the fun stick people that Wordsworth comes up with, they are so cute and EASY to color. You will be seeing a lot more cards from Rubber Soul and Wordsworth because I just started some blogging work for Dani and Fred. I met them at CHA and they are delightful folks!
This card uses a SU! chocolate chip cardstock base and cute pink and brown patterned papers from Target. The main image was colored in with Copic markers...very simple, just marker to paper coloring like you would do in a coloring book. Then I took my brand new Spellbinder's Standard Tag Die Template and cut and embossed a fun tag. Isn't it neat, I just love tags. I'm sure if you guys like this one, we can ask Ellen to carry it in the store. I inked up the edges with a brown ink pad to add some definition, added a big eyelet and some pink ribbon. Mounted the tag to the card front with SU! dimensionals and I was done! Oh, and those pink little flat beads.......hmm, stay tuned for more of those. :)
When I received my goody box from Dani and Fred at Rubber Soul, they sent a fun collection of stamps for me to give away. It was like Christmas! And I get to share with you guys. So in honor of the new baby, I'm giving away my first blog goodies! If you are the lucky winner, you will receive the Baby acrylic set and some fun baby embellishments shown below. All you have to do is leave a comment with your name and tell me one of your favorite childhood memories. I think my fondest memories as a child was growing up with my mother at home. She was always there to greet us when we got off the bus and we never had to go to a babysitter. She always had some homemade goodies as treats and we got to play outdoors for hours and hours until Dad got home from farming. Those were GOOD days!
I will select a winner on Saturday evening so be sure to leave a comment and feel free to tell your friends! I will ask the winner for an email address so that I can contact you for a mailing address. And a big THANK YOU to Dani and Fred at Rubber Soul for the wonderful opportunity they have given me!!!
