{A LOUD BABY CARD}


OK---sometimes, we just aren't crazy about a card we make, right? This is a good example of that, but, I decided to post it anyway---This card started about a birthday card---thus the loud, fun paper. When I pulled out my "ha-pea birthday" sentiment, it actually said, "ha-pea anniversary"----yep, it was in the "Ha-pea birthday" little bag and it said that on the front, but obviously it got put in the wrong bag. Well, I couldn't think of ANYONE that I could send this to as an anniversary card, so I just used the "sweet pea" sentiment and made it work--

I used Cosmo Cricket papers from the Snorkel line and some New Leaf cardstock. I'm still learning how to color, so it's a little darker green than I wanted, but practice, practice, practice is what I've been told! I made this for last week's CPS challenge, but I didn't get to post it---so, here it is---but it does follow the CPS sketch 124 if you want to see the sketch.

Short and sweet today---have a great day and thanks for stopping by~

I just have to laugh at your comment: "I'm still learning to color" :-) Don't they teach you that in kindergarten? I know you are referring specifically to stamping, but it made me giggle. I am sorry to laugh at your expense! Have a wonderful day!
