I simply don't have the time to go back through years of posts in order to fix the orientation of the pictures.

MIA for a little while


I have to make this quick - my life has been absolutely crazy the past couple of weeks, and it doesn't stand to get any better over the next week or so.  I'll try my best to pre-schedule a post or two (to include my reveal for sketch #4 over at Card Patterns), but I can't promise much more than that for now.  Yet another plug to subscribe to my blog to get e-mails when I update via Feedburner using the link in the left-hand sidebar.

This is a card I made for my husband's squadron to give to families who have baby girls in the near future (I made 6 of them).  It uses the Congrats stamp set that you can get for free during Sale-a-Bration.  I really like it - it has a lot of great sentiments for all sorts of occasions.  Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st, so don't miss out on it!  Check out the mini catalog for it in my right-hand side-bar.  I used the challenge from the Great Swaps Girls blog (monochromatic) to come up with my color combo.  Check out the challenge HERE.

All supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted.

Stamps:  Congrats
Paper:  Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla CS, Parisian Summer DSP (retired)
Ink:  Pink Pirouette classic ink
Accessories: Scallop Edge punch, Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon, stampin' dimensionals


  1. I love this. Now I am for sure going to have to get the butterflies!!!!
    What a great use of the parisian summer paper. I need to find a different way to store my paper so that I know what I have.

  7. Marie, this is so soft and pretty! Love the butterfly on there and that scalloped edge! Thanks for playing along! I don't get notices when someone links to the post so I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
