Hi Everyone. Hope you are having a great week.
Quick post for you tonight.
I created a card using the color challenge across at 4craftychicks. The colors... Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink and Basic Grey. I also used sketch number 31 from the papercrafts go to sketches to create my card. Don't forget to pop along to the craftychicks site and check out the design and submission cards.
I haven't used the Baby Bundle set for a while, and decided it was time it came out for a little ink-love. I did this version.... then I did a 3 minute version! Whenever I create a card, I have been trying to force myself to make two cards - a simple one layer card and a more complex card. I'll show you the sime 3 minute card using the same theme and same colors in a different post.
In the meantime, here's my baby bundle
I decided to incorporate the grey into the individual items. Each square has the grey, pink and concord incorporated into it. I had great fun cutting around those tiny little individual pieces, I can tell you :-)

What do you think? Sometimes, I want a baby card that is a little more sophisticated and I thought that this sketch really did lend itself to using the little pieces from the set, as opposed to the baby and the pram. Is that a word they use in America? A pram? Or is that really a left over from my birthplace?
I had passed over the sentiment - but it really is super cute. I got it as part of Sale-A-Bration and am so glad that I did. I really think it is a perfect sentiment.
On a personal note: Another long day today and Lou is, of course, out of town! This time he's in rainy Seattle - at least he is on the same continent for a change :-) I have got to finish up some stuff for work, then go make my dinner, feed the pussy cats and.. oh yeah... find my father's death certificate. I have an appointment at the clinic tomorrow and need to take that along. Now... finding that could take a while. Especially as it is amongst all my other genealogy stuff!
Continued prayers tonight for those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It must have been wonderful for the rescue workers when they found a 70 year old woman and rescued her after 4 days. It must have made them feel so good.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday filled with love and joy. Don't forget to reach out to say hi to someone you haven't spoken to in a while... just because.
