An Unsent Card and Some Excuses

Oh my goodness! it has been so long since I posted on my blog. To my two faithful readers I am very sorry. We are currently looking for a house to buy. In the mean time, we are living with my in laws. We have been staying in their bonus room for almost six month (I have a family of five). Our previous home finally sold but we have not found a new one yet. Then three weeks ago my MIL had back surgery. So I have been helping to take care of her. Needless to say, I have not stamped.

So this card is a card I made for a family friend who had a baby. I made it before she had a beautiful little GIRL! She has three boys so I figured that the blue was a safe bet. My intention was to make matching pink and blue cards so I could send either one but I ran out of time. Instead she got a little note that said, "Congratulations" .... no stamping involved. I did however send her a great girly blanket from ...

Okay, enough rambling ... Onto the card.

This card was totally inspired by seewah over at {kindred spirits}. You can see her card right here. I did not have any SU! Kraft card stock so I used some similar paper that my hubby got for me. I love the look of the white craft ink on it. The sentiment says, " sweet little one" but it is hard to see in the photo. This card measures 4 1/4 " X 4 1/4"

Stamps: I'm Here and Hugs & Wishes
Inks: Craft White and Craft Bashful Blue
Paper: Bashful Blue and non SU! Kraft
Accessories: baby blue grosgrain, sponge and punch
