My sister texted me yesterday to tell me to call her as soon as I got the message. Immediately, I thought that something had happened to dad. Nope. He's fine! (whew!!) Turns out she'd gone out for Easter breakfast with her kids, and she was given the second best Easter gift ever....(we know what the first best is!). Not only are her son and dil expecting a new baby, IT"S TWINS!!!!!!!!! How cool is that?! I'm so excited for them. My nephew and his lovely wife are awesome people, and really good parents to sweet little Miss Emma. Babies are just about the best news, aren't they?! *sigh*
Naturally, I had to make a card for the expectant parents. Twins calls for one, don't you think? Had a ping last night, and wouldn't you just know it, the card turned out exactly like I saw it in my head. Love it when that happens. Took like 5 or 10 minutes... And, I found a challenge to pop it into too! Less is More would like us to use Predominantly Black. Sounds weird when thinking of a baby-to-be card, but just wait till you see it.
Let me know what you think....
After starting with a Michaels white base, I used scraps for the rest of the image. Cut file 29123, which I sized and lopped off to get just this section. Punched out a couple of hearts for the babies, and added a smidgen of WoS to them. An A&E sentiment with Versafine black ink, and done.
Next card is for MFT's Sketch Challenge. Nothing came to me last week, but today I just played around with it, and came up with this card.
Michaels white base with a scrap of chevron, a scrap of blue cardstock, and a bit of paper from Miss Geri acquired at the BABES adventure. All the dies are MFT, as are all the stamps. A few sequins, a couple blings, an old flower sticker, and an SC clothespin holding a bit of silver thread. The Notecard die is actually longer, but after I cut it the first time I popped it back into the die and made it shorter. Hope you all have a great week, and happy dances everyone.
