For You, But For Who?


I made this card this morning while (miracle of miracles!) Carter actually napped in his pack n play for more than 20 minutes. Not quite the crib, but a close second. Better than the bouncy chair or my arms! I'm not saying who this card is going to just yet, they will find out when it arrives in their mailbox...

The layout is from this week's Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch by Mary Jo. It's amazing that I got to it so early in the week! I used the new In Colors and found that this Making Memories dp matched the Rich Razzleberry pretty closely. The pale yellow is from Bazzill scrap from my ever-growing pile. The stamps are from SU! Great Friend and the butterfly is popped up on a foam dot. The ribbon is SU! dotted grosgrain. For the layers under the sentiment, I connected two word window punched pieces and topped them with the new label punch from SU!

Hopefully this card will make it's way to the mailbox this afternoon. Right now, I have to run and get ready for lunch. A friend is coming over and I'm hoping Carter sleeps long enough for me to eat some. I had apple pie for breakfast because I could eat it with one hand - at least it's fruit, right?

Here's hoping you are all enjoying a nice day. We have some nice fall weather here today and my goal is to get out for a walk after picking up DS1 from school later. Thanks for looking!

Apple pie...ha! You are a girl after my own heart (that's how I justify oatmeal cookies for breakfast!). Love the card with this SU color scheme...what luck with the DP you found!
