Something for Baby - FMS147 & CYCI29

Hello there! I'm so happy to be back stamping! I had a rough week with migraines and missed my regular Thursday post :( But these two challenges from Freshly Made Sketches and Can You Case It got my creative juices flowing again and I'm back in my stamping room this morning! Yay!

Isn't this color combination divine? Love it! And the sketch this week by the very talented Jen Timko is just too fun!

And here's what I came up with!

What do you think? The colors just said 'baby boy' to me so I went with that. The stars from the Something to Say stamp set are just the perfect size for my banners and then I used my Stampin' Markers in the same colors to ink up this baby toy image from the Something for Baby stamp set and then die cut the image using the coordinating Baby's First Framelit Dies. For the life of me I cannot recall what the name of this toy is!! Please let me know! I used the 'congratulations' sentiments from the Something to Say stamp set on this card as well...the font is soooo pretty!

Just a little bit of wispy Linen Thread sets the baby toy off perfectly. Surprise, surprise, NO Candy Dots today! I actually put some on the card but when I photographed it, they looked like chicken pox! Truly, they were all you could see...so off they came and I'm perfectly happy without them (this time). I just love Stampin' Dimensionals, don't you? I've tried many different brands of foam adhesives over the years but am soooo happy with this Stampin' Up! product. They are the perfect amount of depth!

Love, love, love the opportunity to spend my morning stamping today! Now off to do some chores. A necessary evil...

Side note here, I had a bit of excitement this week while I was home with my migraine. I heard a funny noise and when I went to investigate I discovered that one of the supports for the shelves in my stamping closet had given way!! This is a major calamity because those supports support FIVE 8 foot shelves holding all of my precious goodies!! Eek! I had to rush to unload all of those shelves as fast as I could because I was so worried that they would give way completely and come crashing down on each other...!

Here is a picture of what gave way:

See how the far right support came away from the top rail? All of my goodies were tilting precariously and had to be rescued:

More....

Do you see my feline friend? That's Buster, he's trying to figure out what's going on...

And still more...

Did I mention that I was recovering from a migraine when this happened??? Whew!

My darling husband promised to repair it for me this weekend...here's hoping!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome weekend!!
