I feel like I have been running around with my head cut off the last couple of weeks! I really want to know where the time goes!! I realized today was Friday and I hadn't done my card patterns sketch for the week!! yikes!! so I took some time this afternoon and made a card for the sketch. It's a simple one but I love the way it turned out. The baby buggy is from my cute stamps. I love this set!! It is totally adorable and since I make a ton of baby cards it was a must have for me. I paper pieced it using cosmo cricket paper and punch it out in a circle. The patterned paper is a journaling block from the same paper pack. I punched a scalloped border from my apron lace punch from fiskars and adhered it under the journaling block. For the side layer I stamped a row of polka dot basics from papertrey ink with versamark ink and stitched above and under to make a border. I layered it all onto the melon berry cardstock and added a bitty dot melon berry ribbon and adhered the buggy on top with a dimensional. Stamped the sentiment in adirondak espresso ink, added some pearls and voila!! my card is done !! Whew just made it under the wire!! Hope you enjoy and have a great day!!
