Shower Card

This past weekend I got to visit with my bestest friend from grade school and some other friends, attending her shower. It was a lot of fun, very relaxing, with lots of laughs. She's so cute and I relished in the memories of being pregnant for the first time, feeling overwhelmed and overjoyed all at the same time.

She looks so cute as she's tiny and has this little basketball growing out, and she still has about 12 weeks to go. She loved the thank you cards I made for her, and I wish I had time to do more, but I didn't. I have some other things in mind for her though ;-)

I'm thrilled as they will be out here in less than a month and although she'll still be over an hour away, it's a lot closer than a visit every few years!!!

Here is the card I made (last minute) inspired by Kristina Werner. I attempted my hand at sewing but got frusterated with my sewing machine and not being able to thread it correctly (thank God my Mom will be here this weekend). Needless to say I broke out the needle and thread.

This has to be one of my favorite sets Baby Love from Cornish Heritage Farms. I used my aquapainters, Cool Carribean cardstock and inks (retired), Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana. My patterned paper is from a scrapbook kit from Close to my Heart which matched the card perfectly.

I miss stamping but have been swamped with work, travel, birthdays, family coming in to town so I have been otherwise occupied but hoping next week I'll have some more down time (is that wishful thinking??).
