Dedication

Hiya Peeps!

Sorry I have been MIA lately, after I handed in my dissertation I had a number of things to catch up on that I had neglected to do whilst working night and day to get my dissertation done! Now that I have I am off for 14 days from work and have some lovely things planned! I'll get to that in a bit.

Todays card is totally inspired by the lovely Nichole Heady. My friend from work asked me to create a Baby Dedication card for her Nephew. It took me a while to think what to use but then Baby Button Bits jumped to mind!

I simply printed the font onto the card and stamped the bear in the middle. I used a nestie to cut the scallop matt and rounded all the other corners with my corner chomper. The ribbon is Nichole Heady style and very easy to do. She also has a video HERE showing you how to create the ribbon effect.

The background kraft matt is stamped with background basics hearts in Spring Rain ink. I thought about polka dots but hearts won!

Today it is very windy outside so I can see a full day in the studio creating! I have some design work I want to accomplish then it's play time! I hope to have my new PTI goodies on Monday, they are currently sitting in customs!

Only 6 sleeps to an exciting weekend! It's my birthday on the 14th and my friend Kerry and I have planned a trip to London and a day in Paris :) Oh so can't wait! There is a stamp shop in London that Kerry is taking me to that I've never been to before called Blade Rubber and in Paris there is the most FABULOUS shop called Temple Du Scrap! Plus we will be taking in all the fun both in London and Paris. It's an excellent opportunity for me to research also and take tons of photos for my design work!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
