MFTWSC189 BABY

Hi all!  Well, we have returned from our vacation in Wisconsin and I’m really wishing we were still there!  We didn’t do as much as in past summers, but still a lot.  It’s hard to believe the kids have about 2 weeks left of summer vacation.  I have lots of home improvement projects I’d like to take on once they are in school, so I plan to be quite busy!

Before I left Wisconsin, I had to make a baby shower card for my cousin’s girlfriend.  We’ve had a little baby boom again in my family and all boys!

Like I mentioned, I bought limited supplies with me to Wisconsin.  I had my die binders, chock full of MFT die-namics and an MFT shipping box with an assortment of papers and a fair amount of MFT stamps.  I then grabbed a scrapping caddy I had received years ago and filled it with inks, blocks, some embellishments and tools.   Seeing how I can manage without all of the tools and supplies I have in my craft room, I am beginning to think a HUGE destash should happen!  Especially the patterned paper — but they are so pretty, it makes me not want to get rid of them!

Anyway, for this sketch, I flipped it and pulled some greens since I didn’t pack much in blues.  I used my Gingham background stamp again — they are certainly paying off!  The balloons are cut with the Balloon STAX dies and at the same time of cutting the balloon, I cut out the Peek-a-Boo Uppercase Alphabet letters on each.  There wasn’t enough pop on the balloons when I put them down, so I used white embroidery floss to stitch the balloons.  A little pierced fishtail flag with a SU sentiment, some twine and a few little rhinestones finished it off.
