Bottles & Booties...

Hi everyone. Happy Sunday to you! I hope you guys have had a great weekend. One more day to go. Yay! Are you guys off work tomorrow? I am, and I totally need that day! This has been a great weekend for me, but not for my diet. I have gone out to eat twice. I had appetizers, short ribs, potatoes, desserts, and anything in between! Ha! It was my mom's birthday, though, so it was worth it. I'll just have to get back on track Tuesday. Yes, I skipped Monday - what of it? lol

Anywho, so today's card is for two challenges! The first one is this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge. Here are the challenge colors:


Super sweet, right? I love the way they work together..really soft color combo!

The second challenge was this week's Verve Sketch


Is that not a great sketch? Wow..I love it. Now, when I put these two things together and combined it with my recent baby kick, I came up with this little beauty:



Do you love it? I sure do..lol. The colors were just perfect together and the sketch was so much fun to use. Look at little Emery elephant (from Verve). Is he not the cutest thing? I saw on Julee's blog last week, that she used something called "Flower Soft" on her card. I wasn't sure what it was so I googled and realized that it seemed kinda like furry stuff (don't you love my college educated descriptive phrases??LOL). Well, on Friday I was in Michael's and saw some Martha Stewart Flocking Powder! It was just what I needed. I bought the pewter and the brown in case some teddy bears needed a little loving..lol.It was so easy to apply and this little guy is soft and furry in person. :)

Well, that's it from me. Come back tomorrow for another creation! Thanks for stopping by!


Stamps: Emery Elephant plain jane (Verve); A New Little Someone (SU)
Card Stock: Kraft, grey, and dsp (SU); White (papertrey)
Ink: Baja Breeze, Going Grey (SU); Black (memento)
Extras: MS Flocking powder & Adhesive ribbon tape (Michael's); bling (want2scrap); Button (papertrey)

Awww, how cute is this Keva? Love the elephant and the top right hand corner too.

I have some flower soft from about 2 years ago that I have NEVER used...can you believe it? It was super popular so I succumbed and bought some then never even opened it! LOL
