Oh Baby card (for BBTB2)

Ready to face another cold and snowy (here in KC, at least) Monday?  Not me!!!!  The only part of me that is ready for the week is the crafty part- the rest of me is all sniffly from a monster cold and just wants to stay in bed with the covers over my head.  I think I need last week's sympathy card, LOL.

Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to make a new baby project.  I used the Artbooking cartridge to make my sweet little girl baby card.  The sizing on this cartridge is tricky, as things on this cartridge are sized to fit proportionally on the layout or mini book they are displayed with (which drives me nuts, since I am more of a do your own thing kinda girl and never make it they way they have in the handbook).  So the giraffe is cut at 8 inches to get a giraffe that is actually about 4 inches tall.  I couldn't cut him using real dial size because he has a layer.  I did cut the OH BABY title using the real dial size at 3/4 inch.  I love this soft colored paper from Studio Calico-just perfect for a precious new baby!  So add your new baby project to our BBTB2 link and check out all the design team baby projects this week.

  1. No I wasn't particularly loving the winter mess we got. But it could have been worse, so I guess I won't complain to loud. lol Sorry to hear that this monster cold still has a hold of you, that just stinks, I hope you feel better soon Michelle! Your card is just darling and doesn't reflect how bad you feel with your cold. I love that cute giraffe and the title and the paper is just to die for! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Your card came out cute. Yes - I love and hate that feature of Artbooking. I haven't made that giraffe yet, but I sure will soon. Lovely baby card.

  3. Oh how cute and adorable. I love this giraffe and this gorgeous paper! I hope you feel better really soon.
