About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

It's a BOY....NO, its a GIRL.....

















No...it isnt neither.....bwahahahahaha!!! But it is a card for a boy and a card for a girl. Aren't these the sweetest images you have ever seen in your life. My friend and ENABLER, Stef from Glitterbabe Greetings featured a card with one of these images the other day and she told the name of the site she got them from. Its called Karen Whimsy, she has loads of great vintage clipart to choose from. You gotta check it out. These will go in my stash of cards, still havent decided how to sell them yet. I've tried the Etsy thing, not very successful. Ebay???, still debating over that one. I wish there was a gift shop close by, I guess I need to seek one out, huh???

Ok, card deets: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Pretty in Pink cs from SU....I love their card stock. Printed the images out and colored them using color pencils, not much though; just enough to highlight them. Used my circle punch, scallop circle punch, and a fiskars border punch. Then, I used my white gel pen to accent. Oh, the wording 'sweet' is from an older SU set called "So Very". These could be made up for a baby shower, new baby card, or use just the scallop part to make the peppermint patty covers....oooohhh how cute would that be.
Until later babes...Gotta split.....TFL!!!

These are adorable Crystal! Okay, so how about a gift shop in a hospital? You know, so that people could pick up a last minute card for the new mom. Or try a small baby store near you. These are so awesome they would fly off the shelves! You could even advertise it on your own as a baby shower gift basket. :D Have a wonderful Thursday Sugar!

These are so cute Crystal. Try offering them for sale right here on your blog! I do think Joni's idea is a good one if a local hospital would let you do that.
I think your idea of using the scalloped circles on mint patties would be really sweet at a shower.
