TGIF Challenges 99 Baby! Oh Baby!

Friday! How I have been waiting for you! I am ready to put this week behind me. 3 weeks from tomorrow this girl will be at OnStage San Diego among all of my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friends whoopin up over a sneak peek of the upcoming annual catalog! Can you believe that it is already that time of year?? This will be my first one EVER. I am sure the lovely Jeanna will show me the ropes. It is so exciting to have it in my hometown though!

This week the TGIF Challenges has a fun baby themed challenge! It seems like lately I have friends who are having one last one. I am not going to lie, I miss when the kids were little. However since Troy is 12 years my senior I am pretty sure that we are done. Although I said that after Joshua and that is how I ended up with Taryn!

Well look at that! Andrea did punch art... well not punch art, it is more like die and punch art. With a shaker element so that it looks like a rattle! Adorable right? Sue Plote and I discussed this and it really came together easily! A Little Foxy DSP was perfect for this gender neutral baby card! My card has a base of Smoky Slate with a coordinating matte of Pool Party! I used the Layering Circles dies to create my rattle. I was stumped when I needed to create a proportionate handle but the Classic Label was just the size and was heat embossed in Clear Stampin' Emboss powder to give it some depth. The 1/2 Circle Punch at the bottom and paper bow from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit were just the right touch! The Suite Sayings set has this adorable sentiment that I stamped onto the Whisper White Banner with Calypso Coral ink.

Thank You so much for stopping in! I can't wait to see what you make for that special bundle of joy!
