New Arrival

Well, the weather around here is very strange. The snow is melting as our temps have been above freezing the last few days. And by Friday it's supposed to be 60 degrees here. At one time they were predicting more snow for today. But the rain went south of us and the snow went north of us and we were dry in between all that messy weather. I did go out for a short walk at lunch though.
My card tonight is for a friends new grandchild. The baby is due at the end of the month and I crocheted a blanket and I cross-stitched a bib, so I needed a card for the present. I love how this turned out.


Isn't this Bugaboo image so adorable. This image is called Baby Flower Pot and I think it's perfect since we don;t know the gender of the baby. I used the neutral colors of yellow and green. I also used the Stella Sketch from Catch the Bug challenge.

I used a plaid scrap and the green background card stock is also from my scrap box. I embossed the background with Flower Garden embossing folder inked with Mowed Lawn distress ink. The flower border is punched from an ek Success punch. I didn't write down where I got the sentiment. I die cut it with a QuikCutz tag and inked the edges with Copic markers. The image is colored with Copics also. I really love the way this one turned out. Hope you like it too.
I am entering these challenges:
Work was so busy today and the day flew by. I did some security assignment last week and I got a bunch of called and emails today looking for an explanation. I'm betting that tomorrow will likely be the same. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you in some way. Have a wonderful day!

Your baby card is adorable Donna, I'm sure the new parents are going to love it. I really like the way you added the ink to the embossing folder, it has brought out the pattern really well. You did an awesome job colouring the sweet image and I love your interpretation of the sketch. Well done!
Cheers,
