Baby Card for Lacy

Good morning! Sunshine here for a few minutes! I don't expect days of great weather anymore, even though the calendar tells me its time!
Today my card is for a niece who is expecting her first baby. She is having a girl, so I got to do PINK!!

This is an all Stampin' Up ! card except for the darling image which comes from Gina K Designs. The sentiment was cut with scallop rectangle nestie and then sponged with pink (hard to see in the picture-sorry) Ribbon is from Offray.
Thanks for stopping in today! God Bless!

May Sister Swap

What a beautiful day here in South Dakota! We have been having a lot of rain and thunderstorms in the evenings, but the days have been gorgeous!
This card was made while at Patti's last month. It is for the swap my two sisters and I do each month. I really love how it turned out, although I didn't follow the sketch to the T! I LOVE, LOVE this embossing folder! It is from Stampin' Up!, as is the image and paper I used to layer. The card base is Gina K Luxury Soft Sand. The side panel is from the DCWV La Creme mat stack.......yummy paper! Ribbon is from Offray, image was cut with an oval nestie and sponged while still in the die. Hope you enjoy!!
Have a happy day! God Bless! Thanks for stopping by.........

Camping Fever!!

Happy day to everyone! I made this card for a sis-in-law, who used to HATE camping, but now can't wait to get in the woods each spring. I'm sure it will bring her a chuckle. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps, be sure and check them out. Paper is from a DCWV large paper stack, Ribbon and Card stock is Stampin' Up! The flower is from KC and Company. (I just love them, thanks Patti for turning me on to those!!) I colored the image with Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with OMS.
Well I am off to visit the Presidents at Mount Rushmore today! The sun is shining, it should be an awesome day!
Thanks for stopping by, God Bless!!

A Beautiful Day and a Baby Card

Finally, we have a beautiful day here in South Dakota! Looking forward to many more. We have some deer that feed in a field right next to us and they are so much fun to watch! On to my card today..........
I made this card for the son and daughter-in-law of a friend of ours. They are expecting their first baby in the next few weeks. This was a fun card to make, most of the work was done by the paper. Cardstock is Stampin' Up!, DP is from a Debbie Mum Baby Boy Stack. It is just adorable! I also bought the little girl stack! Fun, fun paper!!!
Well, I am planning on making a couple of graduation cards today and then enjoying the sunshine before work!!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless!!

Just Because

Good Monday morning! We are tucked in our place in S. Dakota hoping for some sunshine. It has been pretty blustery since we arrived on Friday afternoon!

My card today is an all SU card, the layout is one I saw a few weeks ago, oops, I guess the ribbon and the nestie are not from Stampin' Up! This is another card I made while at Patti's. We had such a great time, I have a pretty good stash of cards to post.
Well I'm off to get ready for work. I get to work today!!!
Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!
