Monday, Monday.....

Is it seriously Monday already? I can't believe how fast the weekend flew by! Maybe it was because we were super busy on Saturday? Cort had her last cheerleading/basketball game. After the game we took her out to eat, came home and took her for a long walk. It was almost 50 degrees and sunny on Saturday! Sunday was a stay at home, get caught up on laundry, cook a nice Sunday dinner, kind of day. I made the most delicious homemade mac n cheese to go with our steaks! Anything with bleu cheese is a winner in my book! YUM!

Since I am pretty sure you didn't come here to find out what I had for dinner last night....... : ) Let's move on to my card shall we? LOL!

I used this adorable baby set from JustRite......unfortunately it is discontinued! Bummer! I have no idea why I was in the mood to make a baby card. I'm not having a baby. My sisters aren't having babies. I only know one person who is pregnant. Guess she'll be getting this card then! : )

I colored the shoes with my Copics, cut them out, applied Crystal Effects, and added teeny pearls to the buckles.

The sentiment was stamped with Brown Momento ink, cut out with my oval Spellbinders, and while the brass template was in place, I used my airbrush. I used a doilie for the background because it was soft enough not to compete with the image, but pretty enough to add some visual interest. As a finishing touch, I wrapped some Papertrey twine around the card, through the sentiment, and tied a button to it. I also added a tiny Prima flower with a pearl in its center.


Hope your Monday is a great one!!! : )
