Welcome, Baby

Thank your for stopping to visit my blog today. The above card was my design team card for Chalk N Stock Challenge. I thought this darling digi stamp from Bugaboo was just perfect for a welcome, baby card. Actually, the background CS is peach so that it could be used for either gender. I paper pieced the giraffe as well as the frame.  For this design team, we are to use chalk somewhere on the paper craft. I used chalk for the shadow of the giraffe, the leaves and the ears. Chalking is a simple and quick way of coloring. It is so easy to blend colors too. You still have time to join us for our current challenge. Just click HERE and you will be directed to the challenge blog.

Sporty Box Card

Hi, welcome to my blog! I hope that you are enjoying this lovely summer weather. We actually have had two days of sunshine with several more sunny days predicted for the future!!!YEAH!  I wanted to try a "box" card...with my grandson's birthday coming soon, today was the opportunity'
 I must apologize for the darkness of the pictures. I am having difficulty uploading pictures from my camera so had to use my cell phone. We just purchased a new computer with Windows 8 and I understand that I will have to spend some time on how to upload to Picassa. This usually is an easy process but not with the new Windows 8....
My grandson loves baseball and is on at least two leagues. I hope that he will enjoy this special card.
