You're Expecting!

I hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend. We had a great time just hanging around the house for the most part. Last night the boys camped out in the backyard with Daddy and they loved it, so much so that they all slept in until 8:30 (the latest Hunter has EVER slept in)! I think they should sleep out there every night!!!

I made this card for a friend who I just found out is pregnant. I've had this Bella stamp for a while just waiting for a card to use it on! I used my Copics for the first time too. I love those things but I still need to get some more so I can shade them properly.


This card uses mostly Close To My Heart products. I started with a Cranberry card base and added a layer of Papertrey's Aqua Mist. The patterned paper is CTMH's Let's Get Together. I think that paper pack is my favorite because it's so bright and cheerful. I used my rectangle Nestabilities and stamped the Bella with Memento's Tuxedo Black then colored it using my Copics. The sentiment is from CTMH's Tender Tags. To finish I added a Hero Arts flower and some matching CTMH ribbon. I had to stamp the inside of the card too. The flowers are all one stamp so I just inked each part with different colored ink. I hope she likes the card!
