Hey There

Hello to everone out there. Can you believe that January is almost half over? Where do all the time go? We are still waiting on the baby. My daughter has a doctor's appointment today so maybe we will find out more. I am so excited to see a new life come into the world and then to finally know the sex of the baby. She wasn't wanting to find out until the birth. Her husband knows and his mother any maybe a few extras that he told. More on this when I find out more.

This card is for a sketch challenge over at Motivet. This cute image is Eddie. Isn't he adorable? I decided to color him with Prisma pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I think I just might have to do this more often. I love how he turned out.

I decided I would go with a different size card on this one. I made the base 5 1/4 square. It is unusal for me but that is what a challenge is for, right? The pattern paper is from Cosmic Cricket that I bought a Michael's. The colors are my usual either. I used my Nesties classic circles and the pinking circles to cut Eddie out. The card base is Summer Sunrise from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is also Papertrey Ink from a stamped set called Bold Wishes. I used a Martha Stewart border punch. The flower I believe is from SU! and I stamped some leaves in Ripe Avacado on Ripe Avacado CS also from Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is some I had in my stash along with the butterfly charms that I bought in the jewelry section from either Michaels or Joann's.

That seems to be for today,
Thanks for stopping by and have a good one,

This is absolutely adorable. I love the motivet stamps and need to buy some instead of waiting to try and win some I guess. I love the colors and I would so love that stamp set from PTI. I think those sentiments would come in handy a lot. Great job!!!
