Happy Sunday, blog friends! I hope this post finds you having a great end to your weekend. I have a little bit of a heavy heart today. As we were walking to our car from church this morning, I checked my phone to find that my cousins' dad had unexpectedly passed away. He was a nice man with a very quiet & gentle spirit. I am hurting for my cousins right now, & wish that I could give them the biggest hug ever and just cry with them. This is one of those things that makes it really hard being so far away from my home in Montana - I can't just jump in my car & drive the 45 minutes that it once was to be with them.
I find myself in need of some sympathy cards, and after writing this blog post I will gather my supplies & get started. But, I created this card first. I needed a little pink in my life...I needed to celebrate life first. So I created this uniquely sweet baby card.
Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico, & used it as the base of my design. I used the colors (pink, cream, gold) from Cupcake Inspiration #282. If I am ever blessed with a daughter, these are absolutely the colors that I will use for her nursery...I think that is why I picked them for a baby card! And lastly, the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero (#53) is to stretch your stamps, & use them in a way the designer didn't intend. These stamps are from the Studio Calico "Cuppa" card kit, and are more of a postal/mail theme....so I decided to instead use them for a baby. :)
I've combined products from Studio Calico & My Mind's Eye, and they will all be linked below. Unfortunately...the kit is no longer available, but it is still linked so you can see all of the stamps in the stamp set.
