This summer break took its sweet time getting here. One of my goals is to get back into my craft groove, be it cardmaking, stamping, scrapbooking, whatever. Why? Consider Exhibit A: cobwebs from my lamp in my craft room. Ridiculous. I hope to evict Charlotte from my home, or at least start collecting some rent from her.
Today's installment was a card for Max's teacher who is having a baby in August. A parent thought we should throw her a little shower. Since I have not been crafting in quite some time, my stash of baby cards is at an all-time low. I initially wanted to create a shape card just using the shape of a onesie. I got pretty far, until I screwed up the sentiment stamp (grrr). So, rather than trashing the whole card, I decided to pop half of it up on a yellow background. She's not sure if she's having a girl or a boy, so I tried to stay neutral, although the scallops scream GIRL! The binkie and the button were a last minute add-on. I just felt it needed a little more punch. She loved it.
