I can't believe July is almost over! That means my littlest one is already a month old and my sister is soon to have a baby boy too. (She's due in early august).. this also means I'm running out if time to make Christmas cards in July! I signed up for a swap on a Facebook group and this is the card I came up with.
I always wanted the Greeting Card Kids stamp set and when it retired I missed my chance. Then I stumbled upon it at a yard sale for $4! Score!! This is the first time using it and I love it!
I'm learning with 3 kids now that it's easier to cut everything and then assemble. You never know when one, two or all three are crying!
I gave the card some dimension too. The boring white card was bugging me so I had to distract the eyes :)
Can't wait to see the swaps I get in return! ;)
Now on to the cool news! Yesterday my (unnamed) childhood friend sent me a message saying she and her hubby are expecting their first child! This makes me so giddy :) I'm secretly hoping she has a boy.
So I got this new stamp set and I knew it was perfect to make her card with. I've actually never sent a "congrats/I'm happy your expecting" card .. Never had the stamp set for it. Plenty of friends to send one to, but never sent one! I guess she's my lucky friend :)
So here it is:
I used the new hostess set Hello Love (adorable) and I added lots of dimension and flare.
Kidding... you know it's the card.
Kidding again! It's the news! Yay for the soon to be mom and dad ;) (love you guys!)
