Hey Pretty Lily!

Good Friday to you all! Lily's dad comes home this weekend after a month in CA so maybe the current hectic mess this month will resume back to it normalcy. :) Lily misses her daddy and I wanna nap! lol! Lily bean has begun teething and is chewing and knawing on everything in addition to bouts of irritations and waking up several times in the early morning darkness. My poor bean. Hopefully it'd pass soon. Here are some pictures of her during the week.


 
My sister bought her this cute crab dotted romper.

I got her this 'SUPER SEAT' from Target to distract her while I make food. It WORKS!

Ok so I've been really diligent about my one card a week and here is my card of the week! This card is dedicated to the above child. So sweet, so girly, and look fabulous in red and pink! I used Fancy Anya (just love coloring her hair). Papers and flowers are Prima... glitter thickers... some lace... and rub-ons on the top corner.


Oh and I am looking from some good white ink pad? Any recommendations? I hope everyone has awesome weekend. Don't party too hard!

Today's question is: What size card do you usually make?

My cards are usually 4.25x5.5 or 5x5.

For cards I usually go for 5x5 size-however recently I won some card blanks sized 4x8 and they were so fun to work with too for a change :) x

Lily is one of the most gorgeous babies I've seen. She's too cute! And so is your card! I love making square cards but can't seem to find a cheap source of envelopes for them. Anyone has any recommendations?

Lily is so going up so fast and looking cuter each time. Now that daddy back home I hope you have some time to rest and do a lil crafting. Your card is lovely. My card is usually 5X5 or 4X6.

Pretty card Marie, so happy you are showing off your skills. Can't wait to see what's up for next week. ;)

She is sooooooooo cute!!!!

Such a sweet girl! And I love your card. I use StazOn Opaque White and also Stampin' Up! Craft White ink when I need a white ink, depending on what I need it for. The Stazon is great for slick surfaces but it doesn't show up well on dark papers - that's when I use the SU! ink. I pair it with white embossing powder and it REALLY pops! :) Hope that helps - good luck!

Naomi said...

Oh, Lily is just TOO cute! Lovely card, too. I usually make cards that are 4.25x5.5 or sometimes I make cards that are 5x5 or 6x6...

I just love your little one! she is around the same age as my little girl poppy. they are just too cute this age! I usually make 5x5 cards but lately have been maknig 4x6 as the 5x5 cost more to post.
i cant really recommend any white stamp pad. i am on the same quest. i have tried stazon opaque white and stampin up white and the both are not that great. if you do find one please share with us!

Of course the card is adorable but I couldn't help but post what a BEAUTIFUL child that Lily is. Just made my heart ache for the days when my, now 22 year old, was that small. Think I need to get out some baby pics and work on a new layout of two!!! I love when people share the important little people in their lives! Sweet, sweet....and oh so precious! :)
