To My Dear Baby Nephew

For my TiffanyDoodles Blog Hop post, please click here!


Tapping feet. Clicking fingernails. Sighing...Waiting patiently.
My dear baby nephew, I am patiently waiting for your mama to call me up and say she's going to the hospital. My dear baby nephew, I'm patiently waiting for your proud father to call and say how you and your mama are doing fine... I can't wait for you to arrive.
In the meantime, I will continue to be inspired by your impending arrival. The colors were inspired by the challenge over at Off the Wall Craftiness. Loved that umbrella in the corner, which reminded me to pull out some decorative tape. I lined the tape in rows for a unique and graphic pattern, which was oh so much more quick then cutting and gluing strips of paper. Thanks to Moxie Fab World and their challenge to Get Daring with Decorative Tape. I cute-enized the card up with the sentiment and some buttons.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White, Teal

Embellishments: (Sticker Sentiment) SRM, (Decorative Tape) 7Gypsies, (Buttons), Floss)

    Those stripes are so perfectly lined up and I like that all the buttons are slightly different from each other.
