Time Off!

Sorry I've been out of the blogging world lately. We still have so many fires burning around us due to all the lightning strikes last weekend:( Not to mention the fires, I'm planning my sister-in-laws baby shower that's in a couple of weeks and WOW it's a lot of work. Well I'm making it a little harder than it needs to be but it's the fun kind! I made all the invitations and I'm making all the party favors and much more fun stuff that I think she will appreciate. For the invitations I did a gate fold card. I used SU! Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal as my base colors and I used a DP by Colorbok called Sage and Yellow Stripe. I used my oval nesties and scalloped nesties to pop up my centerpiece that had my cute little animals stamped on:) For the stamped images I used Playful Animals by Hero Arts. My sister-in-law is doing an animal theme for the baby room so this stamp set was perfect. I stamped the image with Ranger Ink and colored them in with watercolor pencils and then blended with my blender pen. The Baby Shower sentiment is from a Fiskars set I bought a long time ago. I stamped the DP with the banana leaf... I think it's a banana leaf:), and did the same to the inside of the invite with all the information. I really like the way they turned out and she was so surprised when she got hers in the mail, she loved it! That makes it all worth it:)

Hopefully it won't take me this long to post again:) Have a wonderful day and as always...Happy Stamping!
