Hello everyone! Quick post today. Ava is having a sleepover tomorrow and i've got tons to do tonight. We're watching Twilight, then New Moon, and then heading to Walmart to wait in line for Eclipse tomorrow night and taking along a little friend of hers. This makes the third weekend in a row where I have been somewhere at midnight waiting on something to either see or buy! Goodness..when will I get my "in bed with a book by 10" Fridays back??? :)

I used this week's Color Throwdown challenge to make this little baby card. Here are this weeks colors:

And here is my quite simple card:

I just love that Cuttlebug folder with the gift on it..just so perfect for baby cards. I also decided to criss cross my ribbon a bit and see how that looked..I kinda dig it. :)

Well, that's it. The one good thing about the sleepover tomorrow is that with Ava busy with her friend I will have a bit of crafting time! Yay me! Laters!

Stamps: Night, Night, Moon (papertrey)
Card Stock: Dark Chocolate (papertrey); Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue (stampin up)
Ink: Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip (stampin up)
Extras: Cuttlebug folder; Ribbon (stampin up)
