Happy New Baby Card

Why do I think that weekends are this magical time when I'm going to catch up on everything? I finally realized that I am just kidding myself! Just because it's Saturday or Sunday doesn't mean I can stop doing the stuff I do the rest of the week: feed the kids, clean up the kitchen, change diapers, entertain the kids, put little ones down for nap, clean up messes, mediate arguments, do days go just as quickly (or even quicker!) on the weekends and I find myself up late when the house is quiet finally checking things off my "to do" list. Well, it's late Sunday night and unfortunately, I didn't get as much checked off as I would have liked. But, I did finally get to take pictures of the projects that I've been working on and I have enough to share for the next two weeks!

Thanks for hanging in there and so patiently waiting! Here's a card I made up for a baby gift I need to send. I was inspired by Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 44 and the Clean & Simple Stamping Layout FTL101 with a small change.

I made the large medallion from the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. I punched it once and then attached it to scrap paper and punched again. See this earlier post for details on this technique.

Supplies: Animal Stories, Fun & Fast Notes (greeting), Tempting Turquoise ink & cardstock, Poppy Parade marker, Daffodil Delight marker & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Basic Black ink, In Color Patterns DSP, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
