So, now that I'm no longer living in Germany, I'm going to stop doing my German Phrase of the Day. I guess I'll have to think of something else fun to do to open all my posts, but right now (since I'm writing this while still in Germany because I'm not TOTALLY insane, and I don't even have internet at our new house yet) I'll have to think on it. Perhaps I'll run a blog candy contest so you all can help me decide what to do.
Ever since I saw Jane's cute little Onesie card that she made using Lauren Meader's awesome instructions, I knew I had to make one too (since you all know I'm into anything baby right now!) and what is cuter on a little baby onesie than a turtle? This is the adorable little turtle from the new Paper Pretties Beach Bum set, and I totally love him. This time, I colored him with my prismacolors, then I added some shadows in a complementary color to help him stand out even more. I'm quite happy with the effect, and will have to try that more! For the snaps at the bottom I used some tiny little button brads I had from GinaK...aren't they cute?? Oh...I just love this card. Not sure WHO will rate high enough to get this one...but I'm sure I'll find someone! :-)
Ok...today is a busy day as we try to get settled into our new home here in California. I have posts all lined up for this week...so hopefully by the time I finally run out I'll have my computer, internet, and have actually CREATED something! :-)
Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
