Welcome Baby

One more day... then it's another Monday!!!  For some of you, it's already Monday : )  So you get a head start on me!  Do you like Mondays?  I don't mind them so much anymore.

Today after church, we are having a baby shower!  Thanks to my friend, I have my shopping done...  Then it hit me.  I need a card!  Hmmm... ya think I could make one? LOL!  That's the beauty of it!  I'll never need to go shopping for one!  In case you had the tiniest thought that it might be my baby shower, you just get that right out of your head!  It is now impossible - whew!  That really would be a miracle - lol!  I don't have any 'parts' left - ha ha ha ha...

I think this is the first card I've made that wasn't for one of my dts.  It feels a little funny.  I think I'd like to get used to it though : )

I've used I Love You THIS Much - Boy by Karen's Doodles.  I know that the mommy this card is going to is having a boy, so it made it a lot easier to design.  Although I miss having bows and flowers, lace and sparkles... : (   I think overall, it turned out ok.

Here's a close up so you can see that I cut around the image where it extends beyond the oval.
Cute rattle charm... hee hee

I pulled the arms out for more dimension.
Overalls: B26 B23 B21 C1
Dinosaur: G24 G21 G20
Skin: E11 E21 E00 E000 ?R20
Hair: Y26 Y23 Y21
Buttons on Overalls: Y26 Y11
Dew Drops: Y11
Thread: B23

I am really enjoying coloring embellies to match my card!  I was about to search through my embroidery thread to use for the buttons when the thought came to me - aha!  I can just color the white thread with my copics!!!  That was a wonderful feeling : )   I know... it doesn't take much to amuse me!

Tomorrow I'll have another Karen's Doodles project for ya.  This time, it can't be a card.  What to do... guess you're in for a surprise : )

See you tomorrow my friends!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~

OMG Lori this is so perfect. I want to jump through the screen and pick this little boy up and snuggle him. He likes to real, especially the way you outstretched his arms, adorable!!!!

Darling card! I know what you mean, so nice not to have to go through card after card at the store and "settle" for something - then you see the same card at the shower/party from ten other people. Handmade is the way to go
