oh boy, a bundle of joy!

i think it's quite apparent that i am a lover of all things lawn fawn...i mean what's not to love about their stamps? cute, fun, cheery and just all around amazing! yes please!

with that said, it was a no brainer that i was going to try my hand at the challenge going on over at lawn fawn - i mean, i get to play with lawn fawn stamps...yes please! :) the challenge is being held to find some cards to be showcased in lawn fawn's cataloge and booth at the winter CHA - craft & hobby association! so exciting!!

with that said, here's my card! it's not the first card i made for this contest, but it's my favorite so far! :)

i hand drew a cloud card template and then created the card with the assistance of this handy dandy lawn clippings video!

the stamp set i used is 'plus one'. the stork is paper pieced; on the bundle i heat embossed the teeny tiny star stamp from that set. i also heat embossed the sentiment. then, (and this is my new favorite technique/thing to do on cards) i used the two heart images from that set and stamped them in white ink. i used my glass accent to color in the hearts and then sprinkled them with's SUPER fun! and i've found the glitter tends to stick better - read: it doesn't get all over your hands and everything else it touches. :)

so that's my card! hope it made you smile!

i would really love for one of my besties to tell me they're expecting so i can send them this card...hint hint!! :D ha ha!

enjoy! and happy new year!!

may your 2012 be filled with inky fingers and crafty masterpieces!
