For Taylor

click image to enlarge:

two posts so close together? that hardly EVER happens around this blog!

my good friend Taylor is pregnant with her first daughter (due very soon- YAY!) she's a wonderful Mom to two other little boys (ages 5 and 2.5!) i made this cute card for her today to go along with a jumbo box of diapers, wipes and some other newborn items. even though it's very simple & straightforward,i really had fun making this one! i guess it's just anytime you think about a friend having a new baby, you just have to smile, ya know?!

stamps: MFT Baby Bump

paper: MFT fossil note cards, MFT perfect paper panels, pink, black and cream cardstocks, basic grey dp (basics white, and kioshi 6x6"paper pads), scrap of scenic route paper (black polka dot)

inks: memento tuxedo black, spun sugar distress ink

accessories: MFT dienamics (scallop scallop and jumbo scallop), MFT cork, MFT felt, copic markers, polka dot cuttlebug embossing folder, MFT ribbon, MFT mini pink safety pin (adornment), pink plastic pacifier charm (unknown manufacturer, was in my stash), dimenstional boosters (from Jody-these rock!)

some interesting notes:
the image was stamped several times. i altered the white dp with pink distress ink to color it, then i stamped the main image right onto it. WTG's legs & sidewalk were stamped onto a paper panel, colored with copics, cut out and pieced onto the dp image.
Her shirt and shopping bags were pieced from the other patterned papers.
i just love how cute it turned out- it's colorful and artsy & i dig it!
i fed the mini safety pin through the tiny pink plastic pacificer charm and pinned it right to the ribbon. it is such a cute touch- you should try pinning something on your next card!
i LOVE MFT's cork, felt & dienamics and i can't say it enough- i LOVE LOVE LOVE 'em!

the inside is very simple and has lots of room for me to write a note

to accompany the card, i packed a jumbo baby gift bag with a sweet, pink travel swing, a super soft teddy bear rattle blanket, some one piece pj's and onesies, a big box of diapers & a case of wipes too.
i can't wait until baby Gwen is here!!
thanks for looking!

first of all I love pink, then there's the WTG image and coloring, and the scallops and cork so I'm already in love with the card BUT you added the charm, you know I'm a sucker for charms. GREAT, GREAT CARD!!!!
