Somethin' Girly!

Yay another few minutes to myself, lets see how fast I can type this up now! Sometimes I feel like I am playing that game where you have to put all the little plastic shapes in place before the timer goes off and launches the pieces everywhere. (Concentration?) I never know how much time I have until the baby (or his big sister) needs me.

Alright now onto a project.
I do have some pics of the cards and projects I made for this Mother's Day but, they'll have to wait until I can upload them. In the mean time here is yet another baby project!

The first photo is of one of the thank you cards I made for a friend. Of all the babies born lately she had the only girl so I just had to take the opportunity to pull out the pirouette pink! I made about ten of these cards, and I hope to also get a little box done up for them soon. After I took this photo I added little white buttons to the wheels on the carriage it really finishes off the card.

{Card Recipe}

Stamps: Fun Fast Notes, Wow Flowers, All Holidays
Paper: Pirouette Pink, Close to Cocoa & Whisper white
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Stazon jet black
Tools & Acc.: White signo gel pen, 5/8 in striped pink pir. gg ribbon, dimensionals, glue dots, white buttons, Punches:Ticket corner, Eyelet, Small & lrg oval.

This second picture is of the actual card I made to welcome the new baby girl. The over the top girlyness of this one is a little out of my creative comfort zone, but a heck of a lot of fun to make! I created this card from scratch. Bassically I cut out a circle shaped card, snipped out a quarter section (making a sort of Pack-man shape) and then decorated it. The only really important detail to remember is that if you want it to stand up you need to attach wheels to the back of the card too.

Woo Hoo! This is awesome, I am still uninterrupted, let's see if I can quickly get my recipe posted before the critter stirs!

This is adorable! I'm going to have to make one of these cards soon :)

Can I ask, what did you use for the circle - Nestabilities or something else?

Thanks for sharing.
