Babies and Bottles

The weather here has been beautiful. It is softly raining today...which is all right...gives me a little time on computer without guilt (I'm hiding from the weeds in my garden..lol).

We've had company over the weekend. My brother and his wife came down from Edmonton for a night so we had a barbecue. We had a great time...lots of catching up to do (all made easier by a little home made wine). It was a beautiful evening and after supper we all went for a long walk (needed to walk off the food and wine). They have recently become grandparents so I have a card to show you that I made for their son and wife.

This is the first tent card I've ever made. It was so easy and fun to make...I'm sure I will make more. I used Michelle's easy directions. I love the fact that it could be made to fit in an ordinary envelope....

Stamps - SU "A New Little Someone"

Paper - water color paper for image, SU certainly celery, confetti cream, DCWV Nana's kids paper.

Embellies- ribbon (maya arts), button brads, stardust pen, markers, embossing and a little sewing.

Image was colored with Twinkling H2o's. Scallops were made with a scissors. Rattle was stamped on DP, embossed, cut out and popped up for dimension.

Thanks for looking ...Have a Great Day!!

So pretty! You did a wonderful job with the twinkling H2Os. How did you ever cut the oval with your scallop scissors? It is perfect! (If using scissors had been a requirement in kindergarten, I'm sure I would have failed! LOL)
