Waiting for Baby

These pictures were taken when we were waiting for our Independent Girly Girl to arrive. Of course I barely got around to scrapping them. I am soo behind. But one page at a time right. Welcome Baby is cut from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge. The girl is from Everyday Paper Dolls.

I ran her hair and shirt through the cuttlebug. The hair was run through Branches folder and her shirt was run through the Tiny Bubbles folder. Her purse I ran through the Script Font folder than inked it. I added a flower with a rhinestone to her bow. The pregnant mommy's face was stamped with Peachy Keen Stamps Princess Face Assortments.

Father's Day

Emma over at creativetimeforme.com is having her 2nd Thursday Throwback challenge. So I realized I am way behind on my cards. I needed 3 fathers's day cards and two birthday cards. Her challenge was to use Stretch Your Imagination, but I mine was loaned out to a friend so I used the colors she asked for which were blue, brown and red.
My camera is MIA at the moment so I had to use my camera phone to take the picture. So the colors are not as vibrant as they are in person. Father of the Year is a rub on I had in my stash.
The ribbon is brown and I used fibers for the strings of the balloons. The balloons are from the stamps of life HappyBday2You set. The word Father was actually a stamp from papertrey ink. (I had to add the 's). Well enjoy and SMILE:)
