It's been nearly a month since I've posted or made a card. I've been enjoying my family and the Christmas holidays and taking a bit of a break from blogland. The other night, however, I pulled out my supplies and started creating again.
I made two cards for the CASology challenge 'New.'
The first is a new baby card. I stamped the PTI banner in blue, green, and purple to make a baby bunting. I also used my new twine from Lily Belle's Paperie on Etsy. I had a stamp with the word baby in it that fit the circle tag, but it didn't fit, if you know what I mean. Instead I used this tiny Joy sentiment from PTI Mega Mixed Messages. It looked better in the circle , and I decided that 'joy' is the perfect word for new babies. Sleepless nights, dirty diapers, colic . . . and joy.
For the second card I participated in a new to me challenge, Freshly Made Sketches. As this is the 67th challenge, it's obviously not new to the world, but it's the first time I've ever participated in it so it's new to me. :) I used Wplus9 Mother's Day Bouquet for the flowers and added a sentiment from PTI Mega Mixed Messages. Again I used my new twine. I love that sampler pack with so many beautiful colors.
We were going to drive up into the mountains today to go snowshoeing, but when I checked the weather conditions it said it was 28 degrees and gusting up to 38 miles per hour. I don't think our girls would enjoy snowshoeing into a freezing wind! So instead, we'll be "taking down Christmas" and then I'll enjoy catching up on all of your lovely blogs.
Thanks for your visit!
