Welcome Little Isabelle!!



(ETA)Sorry if you're seeing this Friday night...I postdated this for Sat. morning and it popped up already...the hop doesn't start until 8:00 am Pacific Sat. the 11th....don't know how this happened...

There’s a new little baby Diva almost here and today we’re celebrating with a suprise shower hop! So come along with us and do the hop, hop, hop to help celebrate the arrival of Charmaine’s new little oodabug! This shindig started at the Verve Stamps blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning!

I'm so excited to be able to participate in this little shower for Isabelle!! Here's the card I made to welcome Charmaine's new little one.

I don't own any Verve *baby* images or sentiments, so I had to make do with what I had. Charmaine loves color...so I went with pink tones (since she's having a girl....*grin*). I thought the tulips from the Miracles Blossom set were sweet, and I adapted a sentiment from the Just For You set. Since Verve's images are clear, it's easy to choose selective words from sentiments. I inked only the words *You are perfect* from the sentiment *You are a perfect example of the person I want to become*. Woila...a baby sentiment. *You* was inked with Versamark and embossed with White ep. *Are* was colored with Green Galore (SU!) and Perfect was colored with Cameo Coral (SU!). The sketch is from this weeks Mojo Monday #94.

The dp is from Papertrey's Text-Style Hodge Podge. And the cardstock is papertrey Sweet Blush and Simply Smooth (Prism).

I have some new punch toys, and the corners were made with one of them. It's an All Decco 4-in-one Victorian Corner Punch.

Finally, I added a bit of bling with Glitter, Rhinestones (Zva Creative), and Pearls (Kaisercraft).

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Amy's blog for some more cuddly goodness.


Happy Stamping!!
