Baby Girl & Birthday Cards

Here's another baby girl card. I'm not really sure how many cards my MIL is going to need (she isn't sure what the sex of one of the babies will be) so I'm just trying to make a few and she can pick what she likes. It won't hurt to have a few baby cards in my box for future use.

I used CTMH Grey Wool and White Daisy cardstock. The inks used were CTMH Grey Wool and Cotton Candy. I know the polka dot and grey washi tapes are CTMH, not sure about the yellow chevron. The stamps are both CTMH as well.

I also made a few birthday cards using this pattern. The first one I used pretty much like the inspiration card I found, but I didn't really care for it. The 2nd card I added some layering and loved how it turned out. What do you think?

Starting 2015 Strong!

I've tried to start this year out with some crafty time. Since the wedding, I've sold my townhouse and moved into my husbands house, which means I had to merge my hobby with his in our joint hobby room...about 1/2 the space I used to have. It's been an adjustment, but I've purged some things, rearranged some things and I think I'm getting settled. Here are some things I've recently made:

I used an OWH Sketch for this card. The paper is SEI "Corrine" (it has some silver metallic in it, which is fabulous), black cardstock is CTMH, sentiment stamp is from PTI.

These cards are from one of CTMH's card workshops. The paper line is Snowhaven. 

My mother in law asked me to make a few baby cards for her. This first one is using DCWV Nana's Nursery paper. the sentiment stamp and twine is CTMH.

This is the 2nd baby card I made...I know the paper is DCWV, I think it's Nana's Kids??? Sentiment and Outdoor Denim cardstock is CTMH.

Happy 2015!!!

I'm so glad to be starting this new year. 2014 was full of WONDERFUL things and a few tough things too. For starters, I got married to the man of my dreams...the man I've loved for many years and we are so very happy. It was kind of a whirlwind of events this summer as we decided that we wanted to get married and do it right away! So, here's a few pics from our ceremony at the courthouse.
