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!

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!
