Hooray It's a boy!

My coworker and friend had her 2nd baby boy yesterday. And I got to hold him when he was 7 hours old!! He is gorgeous. So being the good "auntie" that I am I went out shopping last evening for him and his big brother. I then made this card for them when I got home. I am really liking how it turned out for starting it so late in the evening.

Stampin Up Baja Breeze cardstock base and ink for the star. Basic Brown for the sentiment. Stampin Up Classic Backgrounds for the star, Wordsworth for the sentiment and the inner sentiment is Unity. Patterned Paper by Imaginisce. Nestabilities for the larger stars. And Stampin Up star and corners punches, plus some brads and ta-da it is done.

Cindy's birthday

Yesterday Rhonda planned a surprise birthday lunch for Cindy. It was such a great time. The cute tea shoppe/bakery was delicious. And the details in the shoppe were adorable. Some of the tables were placed on old Singer sewing machine foot pedals. And there was an old door on the wall as decoration. Time flew by and it was so great to spend time together with Sarah, Andrea, Madelyn, Andrew, Rhonda, and Cindy! I think we should do it every month!
I made this tent topper card for Cindy, whose kitchen is green! I didn't make the connection though until after my card was made and then I squealed with delight. All the stamps are Unity, my new favourite stamp company. I even joined their monthly kit club! It really is a great deal, and I love all the stamps that I have from them already! The window scene stamp is from the May kit of the month. And the flowers are from the November kit of the month. I paper pieced the curtains with some Making Memories paper. And then colored the top, the cup, and the flowers with my Copics. The flowers on the curtains are Prima and the brads are Making Memories. Used my Nestabilities Labels 2 for the tent topper part of the card. Cardstock is all stampin up, except for the white which is from a LSS for copics so I am not sure of the brand name.
