Baby Boy Card & Word Album

Gosh, it's been forever since I've posted on my blog....did you think I went MIA? Well, I guess I kinda did! In October, I got extremely sick and ended up in the ER twice. ER Doctor said "severe food poisoning." They had to give me an IV and pain meds and took lots of X-rays. I went to a GI specialist several weeks later and he said it could be months before my system is back to 100%....really??!! Can you believe it still doesn't feel completely right and it's been 2 months.

Anyways, I got an order several weeks ago to do 4 "Baby" word albums (1 boy album and 3 girl albums). They were a lot of work but I got them all finished last month and mailed off. I even threw in a Name Frame for the daughter of the friend that ordered the albums (pictures of the girl albums and Name Frame will be posted over the next several days).

At the time that I made the Word Books, I didn't think about making a matching card...DUH! But I know if I want my fellow Magnolia lovers to come take a look, I better include something with a Tilda or Edwin on it, LOL! I realized when I went to make this card that I don't own any baby Tilda's or Edwin's...so I had to improvise. That's one of the great things about these stamps....you can adapt them to various occasions. So here's my card using Little Bunny Tilda:

The background dp and yellow dp came from the Welcome Baby Boy paper pack from American Traditional. The blue paper with printed words came from my stash along with the yellow ribbon, truck button and silver charm. The quote stamp is an acrylic set by Fiskars called Simple Thoughts-Boy.

On the close-up of Little Bunny Tilda, you can see I added white fun flock to the white areas. I colored the light area of her face with Copic E51 and the light blue of the bunny suit with Copic BG10. All of the shading on her face, cheeks, bunny suit and yellow ribbon was done with chalk.

Here are the pictures of the baby album (some of the dp came from the same paper pack as the card and some came from my stash).

The BABY chipboard album is from Bo Bunny. All of the embellishments on the album are stickers. The ribbon came from my stash.







Stayed tuned for the girl albums and Name Frame. I think they turned out even cuter...because I added lots of flowers and glitter, of course!

I've also added two other cards/projects below this post (trying to update my blog with previous projects) so I hope you scroll down and check them out too.

Big Hugs to you all and thanks for visiting!
