New GrandBaby for Me and New Projects for The Robin's Nest

Normaly my post would have gone up at 3AM today, but since my third granddaughter decided to make a two week early appearance,  my schedule went kaput! lol  But she is a beauty, so all is well. May I introduce you to Kennadie Anne.


The Robin's Nest Projects
So I whipped up a couple of cards that can be used for pretty much any occasion since I left the sentiments off.  They feature a beautiful piece of cardstock from The Robin's Nest. It's called Pink Coral.  And if you would like to see a bunch more pictures of this project and detailed instructions on how they were made, head on over to Chattering Robin's and check them out!!!






Til next time, keepin' it crafty!

Wags 'N Whiskers: Lots of Layers

Today over at Wags 'N Whiskers, the challenge is Lots of Layers. I love layers and had a lot of fun with this challenge. Can I just say that I love being on this Design Team? I love being on this Design Team. k. I said it.

Here is my card for the challenge:


I used the stamp "He Loves Me" for this project.  I really like card sketches, too, because they give me a jumping off point when I'm "card stuck".  This one is from Retro Sketches (#164).  I decided to enter this card in their challenge since, well, I already had it done!

Here is a list of the supplies I used:
Stamps:  He Loves Me (Wags 'N Whiskers); Thanks So Much (Rhododendron/The Garden Society)
Ribbon and Dot Accents: Recollections (Michael's)
Paper: Fall Matstack (DCWV)
Other Supplies:  Punch (EK Success); Washi Tape; Cardstock

Hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to play along!

Til next time, keepin' it crafty!
