Another Baby to Celebrate

I can't believe it but my nephew who I remember holding as a baby will be soon having a baby boy of his own.  I made this card to celebrate at the upcoming shower and decided to use the Unity Be Inspired Challenge.  I have made this style of card before and while I briefly considered making a different style my family knows this card and may be a bit hurt if I didn't make one for the special occasion. 

Supplies used: Spellbinders circles, Jumbo Scallops, Unity Stamps, Craft Smith Boardwalk Sorbet

Guest Designer for Twinery - For my Sweet Valentine

When I found out I was going to be featured on the Twinery Blog, I was so excited and immediately thought of making something for the World's Best Husband (he truly is).  

I know this sounds cheesy but I have the best husband in the world, he is so sweet and supportive of my hobby (aka my addiction) that he even buys me supplies without even asking (Unity Kit of the Month, Twinkling H2O's, Deco Pens).  We have been together for 20 years and every day is better than the last.  I always make him cards and especially on Valentines Day.  

I started out with the Banner and hung it using Caribbean Twine, but it still needed something on the bottom, so next I made a fan and went from there.  I love the little fans I think they are a cute little embellishment and the twine is perfect for tying the bottoms as well.

Supplies used:  Caribbean Twine, Unity Stamps Faded Music Background and Blossom Stackers, Spellbinders Font One Lower Case and Love Sentiments, AC Glitter Cardstock, Memento Ink
