Mamas, and Babies Oh My!

This week I have really been focusing on Mothers Day cards as I have been trying to get my supply up... there's ALOTTA mamas out there worthy of a homemade card! I have a new Facebook page called Forever Amber's Art that I am trying to get more followers to check out... so I will be posting those treasures there!

But I had something pretty exciting happen...
my little friend Kyllie became a mama this past weekend! ( I say little friend because, she is quite a bit younger than this old mama... but..she's an old soul!) I haven't been this excited about a baby since my grandson arrived almost a year ago! (his big 1st birthday is coming soon! I can't wait!)

So I had to wait for baby's arrival for the big gender reveal - they never did find out... so we are happy to say... ITS A GIRL! YAY!!

Stamp, Ink, Paper
I had to make a card especially for little Brinley... not any card will do...  and I lucked out and found some awesome supplies - which HAPPENED to coincide with a couple challenges! Lucky, hey?!
Can You Case It!

Go and check out all the ridiculous amounts of talent from some seriously crafty  peeps! But... here is what I came up with!

Enabler list:
Cardstock: Recollections? Maybe? haha
DSP: Go Wild Paper (SU!)
Stamp Set: Zoo Babies (so sad its going going GONE with that SU  retired list!) Happy Happenings (SU) - which is NOT retiring!
Tools: Dies (MFT Dienamics)
Embellishment thread: misc.
I also used the sentiment from SU!'s You're So Lovely stamp set for the interior of the card.

I fell in love with that light, peachy card stock with the gold. It was girly and fun... just right for baby!
And I just got the MFT dynamics this week, so it was great to try them out on this project!

Now I'm off to go shop for that baby! :)
