Hang In There!

Here's my card made for Skipping Stones sketch challenge #70!

I have loved these papers from Cosmo Cricket for a long time, but never quite knew what I would use them for. Most of my layouts are for boys. I'm really branching out with my card making!


I layered several of the patterns from the Cosmo Cricket, "Hey Sugar" collection, added the punched edge, and am absolutely in love with the little wire hangers!   The sentiment from Skipping Stones, Bras, Volume #1, was stamped repeatedly on the squares, and simple cream twine added. 

I made this card to enter in the sketch challenge at Skipping Stones
Yes, my wish list for their marvelous stamps continues! 
Check them out!

TWO!

The little guy I babysat for from the time he was 3 months old is turning 2 in a few weeks and I get to see him this Friday!  "Mom" is going for her follow-up ultrasound and we'll see if he's going to have a brother or a sister! How fun!  The best part is that I'll get to spend a morning with him! He is so adorable!
And since he's learning to recognize and count his numbers, I wanted to include elements that he can read on the card!  I am constantly bragging to anyone who will listen how he can identify all the letters of the alphabet!

I know it's not the BEST card I've ever made, but I believe that we often loose track of who the recipient is.  I wanted to make a card that Noah would like.  
The papers are Martha Stewart; Dr. Seuss alpha's and images, Fiskars scallop; EK Success punch;  sentiment by TPC Studio; and buttons from Bazzill.

I will be entering this card in the sketch challenge at Walting Mouse.
