Baby card in a box


Hello Blogger Friends!!! Thanks for taking the time to drop by and visit the Charmed Life Blog.

This month has been a bit of a whirlwind for me. I was sick for a week and then over at my son's home taking care of my grandsons for a week.
I just returned home yesterday morning and then off to preschool. I also am taking a photography class and that is on Tuesday nights.

So yesterday afternoon was spent getting the homework done and also buying the extra stuff he wants us to have for our cameras. That would be an extra battery-a lens hood-uv filters and a tripod. I was only successful in getting the extra battery. Turns out we didn't need any of the extras for this week's class. So I stressed myself for nothing (lol)!!!

Today will be a day of getting our receipts etc. ready for filing our income tax. It seems like I do so much of the work for the accountant who actually prepares the return. But, I guess that's the way that goes. I will be glad when it's done for another year.

Anyway, onto my card for today. This one I created for a young couple in our church who had their first baby. I really like making the cards in a box and I thought this one turned out so cute.

I used the colors from CC518 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and I chose
brown sugar, pistachio pudding, hello honey, crisp cantaloupe, and coastal cabana. The option for the challenge was to make a baby card.
brown sugar, pistachio pudding, hello honey, crisp cantaloupe, coastal cabana

I used the Stampin-Up set "something for baby" and the matching framelits dies to cut out the images.

My designer paper is from the lullaby collection from Stampin-Up. For the "baby word", I used the MFT little letters dies.

Here is a

Well, that's it for me for today. Time to get my tax info started. So until next time......God bless.
