Super Cute....

My neighbour is due with her second child this week so we got together on Friday to put together a baby announcement card.  What we came up with is SUPER CUTE and I think I may just have to use the same design in March when my second arrives : )

Here's the outside of the card:

Isn't it so sweet!  Her colour combination is Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Pool Party.  We used some stamps from the "Nursery Necessitities" set (which is now retired).  The empty green space will eventually be filled with a picture of the baby.

I don't know about where you are right now but the weather here has been GORGEOUS the last couple of days and it promises to get even better!  YAY!  Just in time for Thanksgiving!!!  I absolutely LOVE warm, sunny Thanksgiving weekends and I'm really looking forward to this one.  Mmmm, turkey....

And now onto this week's A la Card Monkey Challenge!  Terry and Shirley were kind enough to allow me to be a guest designer in this week's challenge and I had a lot of fun creating a sparkly (and jingly) Christmas card.

Here is the sketch for this week:



I LOVED this sketch and quickly decided that "Dasher" and sparkles had to be a part of the card.  Here is my take on the sketch:

So my colour combination is Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip.  It's taken a while to grow on me but I'm started to love the "Holly Berry Bouquet" Speciality DSP in the Holiday Mini.  The best part is that it has Sparkle Paper in it : )  I used some for the bottom of the "Top Note" background.  I also used Real Red sparkle…
