Last night, we had a mini shower for one of my friends who is pregnant with her first child. I pulled together a card for her for all of us to sign. While cleaning my stamp table to make the card, EEKS I found a stamp set I had borrowed from my friend Laura (loyal blog reader and sometime prankster!!!) so embarrassed!
Since we don't know if Baby F is a girl or a boy yet, I went with Certainly Celery and So Saffron for the card. In fact, I already had one of these cute pregger girls dressed in a So Saffron Petal Prints dress so it really speeded production of the card!
Using Beate's sketch challenge from last week, and my certainly celery designer prints paper I quickly laid out the card, and punched a scalloped oval with my marvy uchida punch. Wasn't loving the ribbon on this one for whatever reason... but then I had it. A scalloped border with eyelets. And, how speedy was I able to make it with my handy-dandy CROP-O-DILE. The depth gauge made perfectly precisely lined up holes, and then the eyelet setter popped those little yellow beauties right in there fast, but most importantly, silently since my little ones were sound asleep!
Thanks to my wonderful "fabulous four" and to all the guests that have joined us to fill empty seats during this first session. I'm already looking forward to next month's meeting!
