Crafty Goodness!

My life has been challenging lately and I haven't been crafting as much.  When I do make a card or two I haven't had a chance to photograph and upload it - sorry for the long absence!  I am really hoping to get more put up in the future!

Today I made two items to share.  I was inspired by the Unity Stamp Co. and the Mojo Monday sketch challenges.

First up is a card created with itty-bitty Unity Stamps.  These stamps are perfect for cardmaking!  They usually contain an image and a saying (though not always) but are always super cute!  I love owls so I had to snatch this one right up.  Seriously - if you love owls too head right over and check it out - they have SO many cute owl stamps!!  I recently purchased some Spectrum Noir markers to start coloring with and I am having fun with those.  The paper came from my scrap bin so I have no idea what it is!  The flowers are Recollections found at Michaels.  I also broke out my We-R-Memory Keepers Cropodile to set two eyelets for the centers of the flowers.  I have to admit they were a bit dusty! A little sparkle by Stickles and this card was done!

My granddaughter is one year old now and I am woefully behind on her baby book!  There is another little girl due in April so I really need to get with it and get her book as caught up as possible before I have two to do!  There is just something about cute babies that makes me want to scrapbook.  They are just so fun!  With a 12 year old boy left at home I am glad to have some girliness again!

She is just so spunky!  The paper is from Recollections (can you tell I just went to Michaels?) The number background stamp and the typewriter are both Unity Stamp Co.  I had fun with this layout.  The split design in the back was inspired by Mojo Monday and seemed perfect to highlight the two sides of my cute baby girl!

***This week's challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room is Freestyle so be sure to head there to enter that challenge as well!

Thanks for stopping by!!
