Papercraft Star Sketch.Baby Card

Hi Blog Friends, I'm here with a baby card today using Papercraft Star's Sketch Challenge #68. I love how this challenge blog posts their challenges ahead of time so you can plan to play in advance! I knew I need a baby card a few weeks ago so I used this sketch and saved the blog post.
Some very good friends of ours had their first Grandchild. I used some MME papers for this. It's perfect for a baby boy. I stamped the Giraffe and sentiment with this cute CTMH stamp set (Welcome Baby) in Momento Rich Cocoa ink. I added a matching button from the MME collection with some brown PTI Bakers twine.
It's all arranged on kraft cs.
Until next time, peeps!

 Hi Friends, Well, I have officially started making Christmas cards! Ugh. I hate winter. But I certainly had fun making this card with this gorgeous new Basic Grey Nordic paper pad. Ummm. Just love sweaters, and these papers have such pretty knitted designs and fair isle prints. Just love it! When I saw this paper line, I thought of this cute Phindy's Place image called Winter Nest.
I used a Viva La Verve sketch and I also am submitting this on the Christmas card challenge blog. It doesn't include this week's challenge but there is an option each week to upload ANY Christmas card.
I'm not going to stress out this year making a ga-zillion Christmas cards. What ever gets made is what I'll send.
I'm too much into making mini albums right now!  Links below.
Take care this week, my friends.

Hi Crafters! It's a beautiful Sunday in CT. I wanted to make a treat box for Halloween. I went to splitcoast stampers tutorials to make this cute little project. It's called bag in a box, most of us have seen these but I never had a chance to make one. Plus I needed to put this cute little witch on something!

It's a recollections cling rubber stamp that I colored with Copics. The sentiment is from the same set, which I stamped on paper and cut apart. Then I zig zag stitched it on to the oval. The paper is double sided Basic Grey Erie. The ribbon I picked up from a scrap book store, brand unknown.
The border punch is MS picket fence and the tab punch is SU.

I will enter this in several challenges.

Hi Friends, Here's my Mojo Monday 209 card. It started out as a birthday card and then I changed my mind and decided to stamp "take Care" on it so it could be either a get well, sympathy or emotional support card.
I also wanted to use pink in case I wanted to use it for a breast cancer support card.

I struggled with the ribbon choice for this card. I tried just about every kind of ribbon I own. I took a photo of the mess my ribbon is in. By the way, don't get one of these ribbon holders. Such an inefficient way to store ribbon!! It looks really good when it's all neat but it takes so long to keep it neat.
