Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing a card that I just created to send off to one of my magnificent friends!  It feels so good to get some stamping and crafting done while I continue to wait for my baby boy to arrive.  Any day now!

For this card, I used Stampin' Up! cardstock in Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Calypso Coral.  I chose these colors as they coordinated perfectly with my My Mind's Eye - Ooh La La paper pad!  I used a sentiment from Stampin' Up! - Perfect Words.  All punches that I used are also SU!, as well as the embossing folder and the baker's twine.  I finished embellishing the card with some simple paper piercing to add some additional texture.  I had so much fun creating this and I can't wait to get it onto the mail!

May you all enjoy the holiday weekend!

You're Unfrogettable

Hi everyone - I sure do miss all of you!  Most of you may know from reading my mom's blog that I am awaiting the arrival of our baby boy.  I have been super busy getting everything ready and now I am just waiting for him to decide to join the world!  My official due date is May 27th but Brian Quinn could arrive any day now!

To pass some time, I ventured into my craft room to play around and came across one of my old favorite stamp sets - Unfrogettable by Stampin' Up!  I went with this set so that I could let you all know that I haven't forgotten about you!  I colored the frog with Copics and added sponging with Bliss Blue.  Background paper is from K&Company - Small Wonders Boy.  For embellishments, I added some stitching, ribbon and some tiny flowers I had sitting around.

I hope you are all doing well!  Be sure to check for updates on the baby's arrival back at Lakeside Stamping!
