Hello and welcome back to my blog for a quick post today...
As most of you may know, my Crafting is only for fun and my Family must always come first. Two of my four precious children are ill and need me at the moment. Caring for my children is a priority and it has kept me quite preoccupied as of recently. My boy had surgery and is in pain, but thankfully is now on the road to recovery while my teen is struggling through discomfort and may need surgery. Still, I pray and thank God everyday for my beautiful family and ALL of our wonderful blessings. :)
Please know that I have not forgotten about you and promise to get to you as soon as Life allows for it. For now, I just wanted to pop-in to remind you to check out the House-Mouse and Friends MC Blog. It's a very special post in which we are showing what we are thankful for. With this challenge we are especially thanking and dedicating the post to our Teamie Paula, who recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named "Nathan". You can find all the lovely details HERE. This is my take with a "That's What Babies Are Made of" card created for Paula - just a short while back...
This Baby Card was so much fun to make. The outer edges are punched out with a new Martha Stewart Corner and Border Punch set then lightly sponged. The panels are dry embossed, multi-layered, sponged in matching blues, and popped up with foam tape for dimension. Some added fun embellishments are a silk ribbon (tied across back panel and top front panel, a Hat Pin (colored with metallic Gel Markers to match the blues) pin end, Blue Beads, Adhesive Pearls, (also colored these to match the blue tones and a tiny Silver Bear Charm.
