Buttons for Baby
Baby cards are so much fun! I mean, REALLY. The cute colors, the sweet little images, buttons! :) I created this card for a couple in our small group class who are expecting their little baby boy to be born any time now! I know they can't wait! I remember the anticipation before Cameron and Katy were born... and especially the anticipation before the first one! It's hard to wait for the time for a baby to be born. It's SUCH a big deal, and we don't really like to be out of control of things, do we? ;) But God always works the details out just right according to His purpose. I would not change anything about the births of our two kiddos. Even Cameron's birth...as painful and LONG as that was!! I learned so much through it, and now it's just a beautiful memory.
But I digress... Hee hee! I made this card quickly by layering a piece of Basic Grey Marrakech patterned paper onto Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then made another "layer" of buttons instead of paper. These are the Marrakech Buttons as well. Love that line...those colors are so rich! I stamped the whale from Mix Up of Cuteness onto Kraft cardstock and popped it up on pop dots. A splash of Waterfall Stickles on the droplets above the whale's spout, and done!
I'll be posting some BIG NEWS on the blog (and through the newsletter) in a few minutes! Stay tuned! :) You will want to be here for a big event!!
