Baby and black flowers.

I'm feeling a lot better. The boys are not quite over it yet, which concerns me, but they are much better too.

That means I was back in my stamp room! :)

This first card is really just because I love black and celery together. Then I felt the flowers needed a little bling. This stamp set is a retired SU set that I love. The ribbon is May Arts and I got it from All That Scraps. That little dohickie on the ribbons is from Stampin Up too.
Next we have a baby card. I LOVE this stamp. The rest in the set I could take or leave. It's that So Many Scallops set that you can get free during Sale-A-Bration. Anyhow I really like this baby stamp. In the SAB catalog they have it pieced with what looks like chunky glitter on the moon. I tried doing real glitter on the moon but it didn't make me happy, so I did the Stampin' Up! Irridescent Ice embossing powder. I like this a lot. The patern paper is Stampin' Up! too, it's from the Print Pack pack of paper you can get as a hostess gift. (this card is half free I rekon!) I did the corner punch scallop on the edges, then punched holes in that to make it lacy. I used more of the blue paper on the inside.
I like how when it's closed you can see the blue paper peeking out behind the scallop. Also sense there is a line patern on the blue paper I will find it easier to write a neat note inside.

Ugghh... Erin we had it too - but not as bad as you. My kids are older (8,5 and 5) so we only had one carpet incident.

Glad to hear you are all on the mend - it took us a while.

Glad you are feeling better, hope the boys are 100% soon!!!

Love these cards. I've never made a card w/celery & black. I may have to try it.

The baby card is ADORABLE!!! Love the blue peeking thru.

Does this mean you managed to get your SU stuff???
