Baby Boy Card with the Atlantic Hearts

My niece and nephew just had their baby 2 weeks ago. It was several weeks early and had to stay in the hospital for all this time and they finally got to bring him home a few days ago. I can't wait to get to hold and snuggle him! So while I was waiting, I decided to make him a few handmade goodies. I made a glass block nightlight, onesie and a vinyl decorated pacifier. Then came the hard part- the card!! I struggle with card making- I don't know why, but it sure isn't my forte! Thank goodness for the Atlantic Hearts sketches, or I probably would never get a card complete!

Here's this week's sketch

And I just changed the flowers out for a silhouette of a baby, added some trim and some Prima small flowers and came up with this! Now I can't wait to give this to them too!!

Thanks for checking out my design and head on over to http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.ca/ to see what everyone else came up with!! Until next time- Happy crafting!

Valentine's Day is just around the Corner!

Hi y'all! with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I decided to use this week's sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to create this cute card!

I'm a dedicated coffee junkie! I love it all day long and one of the requisites of my scrap room when I redone it a couple of years ago was to have a Keurig. Now that's dedication! I don't have to leave my room to have a nice steaming cup!

I found this cute cut file in the Silhouette online image store and had to have it. I'm going to stick a gift card for some coffee in there and maybe give it to my honey. Or my good friend. I haven't decided yet!

Here's the sketch for this week-

And my take on it-

This was a really cute sketch and packs a lot of punch! Here's the link for the rest of the design team's work. Be sure to check it all out here- http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.ca/. And until next time- Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
