bebe...

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I'm actually posting live:)  I don't typically do that...but I've been super busy and behind on things.

First things first...a ginormous shout out to all the gals that made the top 20 over at Gallery Idol!!!!!!!  Yahooooooooooo!!!!!  A BIG High Five to ALL my Bloggie Buddies that made it...I'm sooooooo thrilled for you gals!!!!  I can't wait to see your cards with DIY embellies...

Here's my card today...I was going to re-shoot the pic but never got around to it...we went out to dinner and saw Transformers...didn't realize mr dempsey was in there so that was a nice surprise:)

This was one of those..didn't end up like I thought it was going to end up...I didn't intend on making a baby card but one thing lead to another and well, yup, a baby card.  Works out perfectly as Darin's boss is having a baby boy.   All the paper is American Crafts Peachy Keen...actually my card is frugally cut from one sheet of the Easy as Pie sheet.  I managed to use the front, back and label strip!  All the buttons are DeNami Design and gotta love the Vinyl Thickers.  Why yes, I did bow all those buttons up with white string...I have tiny hands/fingers but when I do stuff like that, I always feel like I have big man hands...cracks me up.

I was inspired by this fab sketch over at Sassy Lil' Card Sketches:


My card base is actually 6 x 6 (Hi Yvonne!!) to accommodate all the stars:)

Okay, off to whip together a birthday card for my boy...it is the family party today..his 'real' birthday is next week...can't believe he is going to be 14.
