I love it when my daughter comes home. She's been here on her Spring Break from the school where she teaches. We only had a couple of days that overlapped. I must return to work in the morning, she will have the rest of the week. So, besides spending time with the extended family for Easter, we managed to get a bit of shopping in, together and separately (with mom's checkbook and credit cards - but that's the way it should be, no?!).
She had e-mailed me last week and told me that she would be needing some cards. Three baby cards and a thank you. I had a few suitable thank you's but no baby cards on hand.
I happened across a card on Sandi MacIver's blog that I really liked. What I liked is how she added the Chocolate Chip to the baby card and how it made it pop! I didn't have such nice polka dot ribbon like she did, and I didn't feel that my CC grosgrain would do the job, so I altered the layout a little. I also paper pieced my baby carriages. Maybe that was a bit too much, but I like it. The sentiment is on the inside of the card. The image and the sentiment are from the set Fun and Fast Notes. I used the flower brads for the wheels like Sandi did, but I had some small pastel brads that I used for the hinge on the carriage.
So my daughter will be heading back soon and she'll have the cards she needs, plus a carload of other "stuff". I'm glad she gives me these little projects to do for her.
