How are you today? I hope you have had a good day and all is well in your part of the world. I had a quiet morning at home and then joined 3 other friends for our Thursday craft group, We started off at the church I attended hoping to meet a need in the community but it just never got off the ground. The area is only five minutes from the city and I suppose a lot of people worked and those that didn't just weren't interested. I am the co-ordinator of the group and as I no longer attend that church we meet at Jane's house as she has a nice big table and LOL, air-conditioning!!! We started off with about 8 people and some of them have moved on and been replaced by a couple of others. There were 7 of us last year and now we usually have between 3-5 regulars. We always enjoy our get togethers.
I don't usually make cards during class time, but mainly stamp and colour images for later use, today I shocked the girls by finishing a whole card, LOL.
Here it is, I made it for a young couple at church who have just had a baby boy named Samuel.
I started with SU Night of Navy for the cardbase, a layer of SU Bashful blue, distressed the edges. The Dp is a scrap from stash. I then layered another scrap of a different DP onto Bashful blue and again onto Night of Navy, Both these pieces of card were distressed. I tied a strip of ribbon around this little layer and then took another length of ribbon and threaded it through the first ribbon and tied a bow, a new way of making a ribbon for me. The image is from SU called "Bringing the Baby" and was borrowed from Jane, I coloured little sections with Copic Markers and matted with the two blue cardstocks which I distressed as well. Sentiment is from a retired SU set and inked in Pacific Blue. I used the word window punch and the decorative label punch and added some bright blue bling to finish it off.
All card except for the basecard was also from my scrap stash, hope this qualifies for Pixie's Challenge.
I would like to enter this into the following,
My Craft Spot Monday Challenge - Anything Goes

The pic with the stork is the front of the card and the other pic is the inside.
By the way, I just found out one of my cards was picked in the top three for a sketch challenge at Come and Get it Challenges. Thanks Jane for letting me know.
Thanks for stopping by,
