A Proud Big Sis!

Well I figured it was about time to share the good news, our family welcomed a new little fella on April 5th (I know he missed Will's birthday by one day!). His name is Kaleb Rowen Asher and he weighed a whopping 5lbs 15oz at birth. He's doing really well and has already gained a whole pound. My daughter, Gabrielle, absolutely loves the little guy and our only fear at the moment is that he might get smothered in kisses!

I actually have a moment to myself (and 2 free hands to type with!) because, both of the little ones fell asleep in the car on the way back from the grocery store! I'm not sure how long it will last but I am going to take the opportunity to share a recent card with you guys.

Here it is.
This was a really fun card to make. A friend of mine has twin boys who will be turning 2 in May. The boys are nust about cars and since I have no car stamps I decided to try making my own car. First I cut out a piece of paper the size of a normal card front (5.5x4.25in), folded it in half and sketched a the shape of a car on it including the bumper, hood and windshield detail. I used this as my template and cut out the car and all the details from cardstock. I did not have any brushed silver cardstock for the bumper and such so I took some basic gray cs and sponged it with silver ink. It actually worked really well. The head lights were created with build-a-brads in which I mounted circles of the SAB Delicate Dots DSP. The hood and bumper were popped up on dimentionals to give the car more depth. Here is the rest of the recipe:

{Stamps}: All in the Family, Short Order Numbers, All Holidays (birthday greeting)
{Papers}: Real Red, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze, Delicate Dots DSP
{Inks}: Basic Black and Whisper white Craft inks, silver encore ink
{Tools & Acc.}:
Build-A-Brads, Dimentionals, Snail, Tombo Multi glue, white EP, signo white gel pen,(punches) small oval, corner rounder, 1/2 inch circle.

Hope you liked it!
