Almost Time for the Granny panties!

I made this for Kitty, my neighbor.  She will soon be a grandma!  Yikes.  I told her last evening (went on bike ride with her) that I am not ready to get older.  I guess it's all a state of mind!
I made this a 5 1/4" square card using pretty in pink, black and BG Nook and Pantry dp.  The stamp set is from Craft Lounge and the bg stamp is Sprinkles from SU!.  Colored with more mustard, so saffron, blush, baja breeze, cajun craze, black, close to cocoa, going gray.

Yeah, baby!


I found out the other evening that our neighbor and old babysitter is pregnant!  What an exciting time for Stephanie and her husband.  Also, exciting for our friends-the new grandparents.  I will be making a card for them next.
Stamp sets:  Love Bug, A Little Love
Accessories:  SU! retired dp, ribbon, crimper, dimensionals, photo corner punch, button, thread, square punches

I have decided that there are not enough hours in the day.  I need to remember to enjoy every moment!  I took time out this evening and went for a bike ride with my neighbor (Kitty-the grandma to be) on my new cruiser bike.  Love it and it was nice to be together.
Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS 8/30/10
Made for todays' technique lovers' challenge which was to use recycled cardboard in our creation.  It was a lot of fun.  Thanks to Joan Ervin for being so clever!
I fashioned a piece of cardboard the size and shape I wanted and then applied acrylic paint to the stamp and stamped onto my CB.  I heat set it to hurry things along.  Stamped butterfly in black and cut out and separated the layers....very cool look..much better IRL.  A bit of glitter, a button, some thread and some sponging and weathering helped.  Also used embossing folder on garden green layer.
