Just for fun

I think I've said this before, but I have a lot of friends and family members expecting babies.
While I was browsing through the book that came with my new Graphically Speaking cart, I saw that I could make this cute little pram and border and the ideas started forming.

I cut the outline of the pram with DP from My Minds Eye and the pram itself and alpha border in Ballet Blue. I couldn't resist adding this little baby from Stampin Up's Cuddles & Tickles set. I colored him with my Copics and cut him out and placed in the pram. For the white background piece I embossed it with my Cuttlebug and Love Language folder. It still looked like it needed something so I added the dovetailed tag. The sentiment was made using my Welcome Baby die cut. I'm such a accessory junkie so I couldn't stop there. I added a ribbon bow, piercing and brads and covered the pram with crystal effects. I finally declared it done.

It was so nice to make a card just for the fun of it. It's been quite a while since I had.

I have to tell you, I am lovin this new schedule at work. It's nice to have a little free time a couple of days a week. I've even been able to do some blog hoppin again. I've really missed visiting my friends blogs.

Did you all catch American Idol last night. I was shocked! I really thought Kris was going home, not Danny, didn't you? Not that I thought Kris did a bad job. On the contrary! He's my favorite (you Adam fans please don't hate me). It's just that the judges comments made it seem like Kris was gonna be the one to go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for him next week.

I guess I've gone on long enough. I know most people hate long posts so I'll shut up for now.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky

I won't hate you, I am TOTALLY not an Adam fan!! The only way I would pay to see him perform is in a Broadway play or something...he annoys me with his theatrical performances!!

Your card is SUPAH cute!!

Well what a really cute card!! So today I got to see all the new cuttlebug embossing folders and I have to say I am really bummed!!! I really am only interested in 2 of them and that would be the one that looks like steel plate and the stars one. Err! Hopefully they will release more after that one in a couple months before the holidays or something. ~Heidi
