Absolutely Fabulous

So, last night I spent the night at my sister's and helped her out with the baby, so FUN!! I am thoroughly exhausted, but I loved every minute of it. He really is a good baby, and only fussed one time in the night and that was about 1:30. Other than that, I had to wake him up to feed him because the dr. wants him feed every three hours. It was nice getting a little bonding time with him. What was even nicer is seeing my sister get some sleep and a shower(a long one that is)!! She is still adjusting but is doing absolutely fabulous!! This card is for her!! I used the sketch challenge on SCS today for the layout. I added tons of hardware from the pewter hardware kit and some primas, cream organdy and kraft taffeta. The paper is from K&Co. I had a hard time finding a card stock color to match until it dawned on me, duh, other side!!Don't you hate it when that happens. The main image is from Artfully Asian and the sentiment is from Absolutely Fabulous. I colored it in with markers and my aqua painter. That is all for me now, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
BTW-here are a couple of pictures of Jared. The first one is him in his carseat on the way to his first drs. appointment, the second one is my sister holding him. Ain't he CUTE!!!

Prettie Wednesday

Hello everyone!! Two weeks ago I challenged the other Prettie Girls(you can find their links in my sidebar) to make a card using BRIGHT colors including orange. This is what I came up with. I used some retired Dots and Dashes DP from SU and colored my Cooper-Look Out World image to match. I used my SU markers to color him in and layered it with Green Galore and Only Orange. You know me, so I had to put some brads, gingham ribbon, and spiral clips on to embellish it. The sentiment is from the SU She's All That stamp set and I just markered the sentiment only and stamped it on white. I used my circle punches to make the layers punched little holes in the scallops. This weeks challenger is Danielle, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!! Feel free to play along in any of our challenges just leave us a link to your work!! We would love to have you join us!!
