WMSC#85 - Welcome Sweet Girl!


Hi and Happy Thursday!  Wow this week is just flying by! Today I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.   I'm running close too because entries need to be in by Friday!   I made this card for some friends who are expecting their first baby soon.  They had some troubles along the way but they are keeping their eyes on the prize - that beautiful baby girl who is going to make it worth all the effort! 

WMS Sketches_MS font_separateI stamped the bottom "patterned" paper with the accent stamp from Oval Classic Frames set.  Claire is great for sneaking in lots of little stamps to fill up the package.  And while I love this (we wouldn't have all those great accents) - I am cursed with my inability to focus on where I place the smaller elements I work with.   SIGH... Yes...  I did loose my safety pin stamp - which forced me to clear off my desk, and then empty the garbage can, all in vain, since I found the little bugger right on the clear acrylic stamping block tucked behind the lamp on my desk.  How it got there I will never know.  As my husband  would say - "it is exactly where you left it".  I would argue that there are gremlins or pixies or some other elements at work in my craft space...   but now that it is back safe and sound and put away I can relax.  Oh and hey - did I mention my  desk is clean?


I hope you find some time to play today - if you'd like to play along you can get all the details here:  http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/02/challenge-85february-18-2012.html.

Absolutely wonderful! Your friends will treasure this card - the background stamping is so pretty, but it's the little wreaths with the safety pin tags that I adore. I think I spy a winner here!!

Your post did make me laugh too - those little stamps do tend to make a bid for freedom. I thought I'd lost the tiny shamrock leaves from the Celtic set - I was so sad. But I found it about a week later hiding behind some paper on my desk :) I didn't put it there!!!

Great job!

Oh, Jeanne, Jeanne, Jeanne, look what you have done. You found my weak spot for babies and especially pink for sweet little girls. You are so creative with those little safety pins dangling from the circle images. You know you have my vote for Top Mouse, don't you?
