Not talking about it...

Nope. Not gonna talk about the weather. Just going to dive right into the heart of the post. A card. A card for a challenge. A new/old challenge. What used to be called the Wednesday Stamp Club and had previously been found on the MFT blog is now the Wednesday Sketch Challenge, and has it's very own new home at the MFT Challenge and Inspiration Blog. Go check out the more than fabby DT, and see that Susan Opel is new Creative Ambassador there! Come on....play along, it'll be fun, I promise! : )

Here's the sketch, and it's a good one. I've got so many ideas for this one....


I went with a baby card. Don't have a clue as to why, but I did.


Even though I'm not specifically talking about the weather, let's just say by way of explanation that we've no sun today, and so my photo looks blah. It's so pretty irl! Went with pinks, browns, and gold. Started with a Michaels white base, and the gold bits are from Michaels too. Scraps of pink and brown papers. All my dies, flags, crown border, and pierced rectangle, are MFT. Used a Pebbles nest and some Gina K. stamps for the sentiment. A little gold thread 'nested' behind my sentiment and that's it. So, go forth and happy dance everyone!

Weather? Sounds like you are 'enjoying' the same -8888 balmy temps that we are currently 'enjoying'!

But this sweet, wee baby card sporting the most amazing colors and sproinkyness warms me from the inside out! I love the crown border...I don't think that I have seen this before - it's gorgeous! Sweet creation dear friend :)

It WILL be fun! And it looks like you had a lot of fun making this baby card.

I so enjoy your funny stream of consciousness banter. Totally endearing!

What a cute baby card Bev! I love the color combo of this one, who doesn't love pink, brown and gold together?? We did have some very nice sunshine today. It is now 4 degrees here, but I'm ready to snuggle down under the covers and get toasty. lol Hugs, Brenda

I was so happy when I saw Susan Opel was taking on a role with MFT! What a fab fit! I haven't tackled the sketch yet but it is on my to-do list...might not bother after seeing yours. lol So sweet! Your card makes me think a little princess has just been born...and I guess all parents feel that way about their bubba's. So darling, Bev! xx

Miss Bev...you are just so so funny. Not talking about the weather, good thing you do not teach in my classroom, that is all we are talking about!
Your card is just so sweet and any new mom will be in love with this. Love all the sweet pink, just beautiful.
Not much longer for baseball....
