Whew!! I'm finally making it back to post my Waltzingmouse Stamps card! After the kids finished up school yesterday, I noticed that my 5 year old son wasn't feeling so well. He went from "not feeling very well" to having a 103 degree fever! Yikes! A sleepless night, ibuprofen, & many cold washcloths later his fever finally broke. But before that happened, my youngest son's temperature started climbing also! Lets just say that not a whole lot has gotten done around here... LOL! I'm happy to report that their fevers are both under control and things are a bit more settled. :-)
I thought that while they were both engrossed in watching the Cars movie (for the hundredth time LOL!), I would share my card with you!
Earth Angel set to create this soft and feminine birthday card! I started with a 5 1/4" white card base, layered on some patterned paper (Basic Grey's Urban Prairie), vellum, ribbon, and a chipboard heart (covered in some coordinating patterned paper). I wanted to add a little "sumpin' sumpin'" and thought maybe some Dew Drops would do the trick. I then thought that maybe they would look good in a circle...sort of mimicking the garland the sweet Earth Angel is holding. I'm not good at eyeballing these things, so I grabbed my largest circle Nestie and used it as a template for my Dew Drops. I paper pieced the dress (from some paper from the same Urban Prairie pack) then added some "stitching" using my white gel pen. Last but not least, I glitterfied the garland by adding some Stickles! Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I used my Color Spritzer to spray on a little pink around the main image! So fun!
Ok...my boys are getting C-R-A-N-K-Y! Who knew that you could fight over how big a pumpkin is or isn't!! Sheesh! :-) You can see more Waltzingmouse creations by visiting the other DT ladies' blogs:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back in the morning with something new for you to see! :-) ~Laurie
