I'm so excited about today's card. I have to admit...I just created this yesterday when I realized, oh my...the 15th is coming up fast...I bet I have to post a card tomorrow morning! And, with sleeping baby in arms, I got to work. It's amazing to me how much I can get done with the use of only 1 arm! Guess I'll be set if I ever have a serious accident with a chipper shredder - so long as it's my left. ;-)Today, I'm sharing an adorable new Cooper stamp called Eggstra Special Easter. I so love Cooper, and especially now that I have my little guy, I'm even more attached to him. I tried to give this little guy reddish hair, since Jack's hair is looking QUITE red (especially in the sunshine.) Given my limited number of copics still, I think I did ok. He's stamped on some whisper white cardstock and colored in with - what else - Copics markers. And I added some sparkle to his egg with my spica glitter pens. I really love his little cargo shorts and Birkenstock sandals - truly looks like a California boy at Easter time since I know Christie the Canuk likely still has snow that time of year!!I used some old SU! designer paper along with So Saffron and Almost Amethyst cardstocks, my nesties (including a new set of tag dies from spellbinders) and some saffron ribbon.
This month, we are celebrating Paper Pretties' 3rd anniversary! I can't believe I joined this amazing team of talented and creative women just two years ago, so much has happened since then, and it's been an amazing ride - I've loved every minute! To celebrate, we'll be having a big Anniversary party in the forum on Friday, January 15th starting at 8pm Eastern time (that's 5pm for us California girls!) and of course, LOTS of prizes. We also have a special contest planned for our Wednesday blog hop, so you won't want to miss that!
Jennifer and Christi also have peeks for you today, so don't forget to check them out! And I'll be back with another peek for you all tomorrow!
