A Baby Shower Blog Hop & Makeup Challenge


Today is a very special day...yes it is special because it is a Friday and my husband is taking the day off to spend some time with the family...and it is special because it is Friday and that means it is time for another Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge (it is a sketch this week!)...but more importantly it is special because we are doing a Blog Hop in honor of one the fellow Makeup Artists, Ginger. See, her and her husband are adopting a baby boy...in fact a baby boy that will be born very soon! So we wanted to help her celebrate this amazing time in true card-maker fashion with a Blog hop! I am the first stop, but make sure you check out PMS Blog to hear all about what is truly special about today!

Ginger did an amazing job decorating the baby's room and she did it with a circle motif. If you didn't see it, then you need to check out this POST to see the pics. Anyway, I was sort of inspired by that for my card for her. Plus, like I mentioned today is also the Makeup 4 the Weekend #49, so I used that sketch for my layout. The Jamie Fairy from Paper Makeup Stamps was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock in Basic Black ink and then paper pieced with some paper from the Granola Paper Pad by Basic Grey. I colored a little bit of it with a Brocade Blue marker and colored his hair with a Creamy Caramel marker.

I layered the image over a Bordering Blue Lacey Circle. All of the pattern paper is from the Granola Paper pad from Basic Grey. The hardware is from an old Hodge Podge Hardware kit from Stampin' Up!. The metal "baby" is an old set of metal words from Making Memories.

So now you are to continue on the Hop to Tina's Blog. Make sure you also create your own card using the sketch and link it up to the Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge post to be entered for a chance to win a free stamp! Enjoy the baby-filled hop, leave some love for Ginger, and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

Isn't this delightful!? What a great card to start the hop with, Andrea! I love how you pieced his clothing with a circles portion of that Granola paper. :) Love the added hardware too! {hehe, the word verification is WORMS! Even that's perfect for a new baby boy!}

Oh Andrea! I LOVE this card! I love how the paper is very similar to the nursery :) I really like the background paper too, I have seemed to be collecting wood grain paper and stamps lately! Super cute, thanks sooo much!
