Huge Elephant Congrats!

June 27th, 2007

Blog candy winner wil be posted later tonight.  You have until 8:00PST to enter in the post below this one!

I needed another baby card (not my forte), but this one was actually a congrats for getting word on a long awaited adoption.  In talking to my friend I mentioned that the wait was a little like pregnancy and she said “like an elephant pregnancy – we’ve been waiting over a year!”  Well that just cracked me up and I had to make her an “Elephant Congrats”


Card is based onthe SCS Sketch Challenge from last week.  I started it then with just cutting some of the pieces and just got back to it this morning.  Not sure if you can see the different background stamping I did – the Rose Red card base is stamped with Dotted in Rose Red ink, the Regal Rose panel is stamped with Paisley in Regal Rose ink, the Amethyst circle (cut with the coluzzle) is stamped repeatedly with Congrats from Hugs & Wishes in Amethyst ink and the Banana Scallop Circle (Marvy Mega) is stamped with Linen in So Saffron ink.  The Banana edging was punched with my Martha Stewart edge punch.  The tiny little flowers are made with a punch just like the one in my blog candy offering and finished with Frosted Lace Stickles in the middle of each one. 

In going through my stamp sets Monday to decide what to keep and what needs to go I looked long and hard at my three different Little Layers sets.  I almost put them in the to-go pile, but I kept thinking that they had individual images I could use for lots of thing and I put them all back.  Well here’s a case in point.  I don’t have a lot of baby images so this pacifier was perfect to turn an all occassion card into a baby card!  And I’m thinking some of them will be cute in the Boatloads of Love set.

 I hope lots of you have gotten your catalogs by now.  Although I have my comp copy, the boxes for my customers still just say “Billing Info Recd” when I check UPS tracking.  They are in LA. – so close I would be happy to just go get them if they would let me!  Thanks for stopping by.  I’ll be back later with the Candy Winner.

    First of all, Jami–this is really cute! Love the design and your use of all the red. Second–she’s really going to appreaciate the humor in this! I know what you mean about going through the old sets. I had On Gossamer Wings on my give-away pile, but then I used the quote from it last night. It just occurred to me how great the quote is for a birthday card. Now I can’t part with it. I hate to break up a set. Darn! Spinning my wheels…
