Happy Monday... errrr Early Tuesday?

It's one of those days anyways. I've had these projects done for a few days and ready to go but I never got around to doing the post like I said I would.. So I'm just going to pop them in one at a time here and there until I get another stash of cards going.

My Cousin just had a new little Baby Girl and I sent her a gift that needed a card. I don't have any baby stamps in my stash so I borrowed one from my Mum! She has an entire stamp store in her house, you could get lost trying to find a stamp in there.. Good thing she has them coded! I also wanted to use the Sketch from Create with Connie & Mary this week. 


This turned out to be one of those cards where you get all the way done with it and you know something is off and you don't like it. I hate when that happens! Using the Sketch and a retired Stampin' Up! Set from many moons ago.. This is the first draft of my card! 


Not too bad, cute! I stamped the bunny on Watercolor paper and then colored it in with my markers and  a blender pen. I used a Crisp Cantaloupe card base and then a layer of Soft Suede that I embossed with the Polka Dot folder and the Big Shot! Then I stamped some of the other images randomly onto a piece of Pink Pirouette in Pink Pirouette to create the background for the Bunny. The Sentiment is from Bitty Banners and I die cut it with the coordinating die set. 


I added some Dazzling details to the bunny's feet & ears. I felt this was too pink so I changed things up and carefully removed the Bunny and re-stamped it and colored it in using Soft Suede. 


I liked it better with the Brown Bunny! What do you think? I sent it off with the Brown bunny and gave the pink one to my Mom to use on a project. 


I always forget to do something with the inside of my cards it seems.. so this time I stamped the other small images randomly and then I stamped the sentiment in the center using Soft Suede. 


I've got some other friends with Babies arriving soon so I'm going to have to get my hands on a Baby set of my own I guess! Thanks for stopping by, be sure to head over to Create with Connie & Mary and see what their Design Team created with the Sketch and give it a try!
