Oh Baby!

I don't make many baby cards, mainly because I just don't know many people having babies...but when I saw some of these new Zva Creative flourishes that were recently revealed at CHA, I knew that I wanted to make a baby card. Lucky for me, just about the time I finished this card, I found out that one of my co-workers is expecting.  Talk about great timing!
I really love this new flourish and think it’s special in that it contains not only the flourish but a wonderful little flower attached.  Zva has so many wonderful new designs that I spent quite a while at their booth checking out the designs and lovely samples that I hadn’t seen yet.

On a cardbase of Pure Luxury White, I used layers of Prism's Rose Light and Basic Grey's Sultry paper.  I diecut the sentiment on my Cricut and attached them with the base of the flourish sprouting out from the "B".  It's my version of blingy clean and simple.

I’m still trying to get back on track from the 5 days away from home…and then going right back to work doesn’t help.  When you are away – out of town, I like to think the rest of my world stands still, but that just isn’t the case.  Everything still goes on – laundry, errands, etc.  I often wonder why I put myself through all the hard work getting prepared to go out of town and the work involved upon my return, but when I see the smiling faces of friends and feel their loving embrace – I instantly forget all that and am mindful of the feelings of the moment – the sharing – the friendship – oh baby it’s a great feeling.
Thank you so much for checking in today.  Your visits really make my day and it’s my hope that you get a little inspiration from stopping by.
Papers: Rose Light (Prism), Sultry (Basic Grey), Pure Luxury White
