Baby boys…

Before sharing, I have a quick confession: I am extremely behind on email.  Extremely.  (Unread emails in my inbox?  1416.  Yikes.)  I will be catching up on them after the holidays when I am at my in-laws.  But, in the meantime, if you need something, please email me again.  Sorry and thanks!  Oh, and I will be sharing more Cards for Kids prizes next week, too.

Thought I would pop in to share a quick couple of cards.  I have two friends who recently had baby boys and I wanted to take a different spin on their baby cards with these cute whales.  The background is Cuttlebugged, sanded and then I made some of the white resulting dots blue with a marker.  Fun.

Supplies: Hero Arts greeting, Martha Stewart felt sticker, Cuttlebug, Hero Arts notecard and pearl, Copic Makers, corner rounder.

Off to make more cards.  Will be back tomorrow with a holiday giveaway.  Night!

    Loved the variety of the Cuttlebug dots. Great idea to color in some of the dots after you sanded them. Love that technique. Take some time for yourself. We are all super busy at this time of you. Have a fabulous Christmas, especially with Colin who, I’m sure, will provide more stories to share.

    Love these cards and the the sweet look you’ve given them, perfect for a friend who just had a baby boy on 12/24, hope you don’t mind if I lift this one, I promise to tell her where I got the idea, though I’m fairly sure she checks out your blog frequently as well.
