Let Sleeping Babies Lie

There is one thing that every mother knows...no matter how badly their children behave during the day, they are all angels when they sleep.  Just look at their precious faces as they dream of castles, faeries and dragons...they are God's gift to us so perhaps it's no accident that they remind us of angles when they sleep.  It's as if God gave us these precious sleeping moments so we could forget the turmoil of the day and be reminded of what a gift of love they are. Those precious sleeping memories was the inspiration for this card.

Using some of the most stunning paper around from the Mica Metallic collection at PaperTemptress.  The subtle shimmer of this beautiful cardstock was just the right touch to remind me of stardust and sweet dreams.  I stamped the focal image onto the Opal color and colored the image with Copic Markers.  This paper takes color beautifully and yet lets the shimmer shine through.

The sentiment was stamped on the same cardstock as the image and placed behind a chipboard frame covered with patterned paper and embellished with blue pompom ribbon.

During the month of April, the Super Novas on Paper Craft Planet are focusing our attention and designs toward babies and mothers.  It's one sweet relationship that is sometimes difficult to describe but impossible to deny...a bond that surpasses time and space.

AND NOW FOR SOME BIG NEWS!

I have some exciting news to share with you today. Many of you may already know from reading Gina's blog post yesterday, but in the event that you may have missed it, I'm thrilled to share that Gina and Stamp TV are preparing to debut a new show to their regularly scheduled line-up.  No need to adjust your sets, just tune in and enjoy the show.  The ratings are sure to be high as anticipation builds for the upcoming Stamping Lifestyle Magazine coming to a computer near you in May!  And I'm the new Editor and Chief!  AGHHHHHHH  This monthly magazine, designed for the paper crafter, will acknowledge and report on topics that are of the most interest to you..the paper crafters. Intrigued yet? :)  Turn in your PC to Stamp TV to learn ore.

I feel like I've know Gina forever, but I imagine she makes everyone she meets feel the same way. Naturally, I've always been a big fan of her and her company since way back when.   I had the opportunity to finally meet Gina in person last July at CHA and she was everything I imagined her to be...sweet and genuine.  I feel very honored to be working with her to help develop this one-of-a-kind publication.

Be sure to check out Gina's post from yesterday, if you haven't seen it yet.

Thanks again for looking in on me today!
