Shower Time!

Last weekend we had a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law.  They welcomed their first child (a boy) back in February.  It was great to get together with the whole family and celebrate his birth.

It was my pleasure to make the invites for the shower.  I wanted the invites to be special and was inspired by this card.  Here's a look at the finished product:

Love the colour combo - how the yellow pops on the blue.  It was fun putting these invites together, but I will think twice before I have to punch that many round corners.... :P

Tulips & Monsters

Just popping in quickly to share two cards that I made last month for a couple of birthdays.

The first is a birthday card I made for a friend.  I was inspired by this colour combination, and managed to come up with a simple, tulip-y card.  I stamped the background myself, and added some sparkles and rhinestones for a touch of elegance.

The second card was for my nephew.  I was inspired by this card.  I paper-pieced the monster together from green and blue cardstock, and added a couple of google-y eyes.  I drew a border around the white cardstock with a green marker, added some bling-y rhinestones in the corners, and voila!  A monster-ific card for a little boy.

Thanks for checking in :)
