Sweet Baby Carriage

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is doing well!

Thought I would pop back in with a card I made at retreat last weekend. I tried to photograph some more cards, but my goodness, it was windy out there! Note to self: finally get or make a lightbox this summer vacation!

It seems like I always need baby cards and birthday cards the most, so I was determined to get a few made last weekend at the retreat. Good thing too, I'm going to need 2 baby cards for showers this week. There seems to be less demand for the hundreds of "hi" cards I make! ha! Maybe I just need to send them out and tell some people "hi!"

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cardstock: SU Basic Gray and patterned paper.
Accessories: Cosmo Cricket sticker letters, Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe die-cut, Etsy ribbon, Studio Calico tissue flower.

Play Date Cafe Challenge #82

Why hello there! Long time, no see! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying spring! Can I just say there are 8 days of school left?! I went on a much-needed retreat with friends last weekend, so nice!

Of course, I had to up our stress level by giving everyone a 30 minute card challenge at midnight! Ha! I used the colors from this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge #82...everyone got a Soft Suede card base, plus a piece of So Saffron, a floral circle, and a Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon. Here are the results, but excuse the poor quality photos taken with my phone!

Fun, right?! I think they enjoyed it, although there was a fair amount of grumbling at me! lol! I'm seriously lucky they keep me around! Ta Ta for now! Hopefully I will be back soon with more cards from the retreat, as well as more challenge cards! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
