CPS 153 and Papertrey Ink's Bitty Baby Blessings


My week was blessed with three new babies in our family; a set of twins, Peyton and Dylan, and Elizabeth. They were all born in near Kansas City, Missouri and their fathers are brothers, my nephews, Greg and Richard. The twins arrived early, but they're healthy and doing well. I made the card for Elizabeth the other day and when I saw the CPS challenge this morning, it works out perfectly as well as using Papertrey's Bitty Baby Blessings. You also have a chance to win some Papertrey products that are being released this month! The paper has been in stash for a long time, so am not sure of the name, but it was purchased at Michael's. The circle was cut, after adhering card stock to some lightweight cardboard to give some dimension. The "buggy" was paper pieced and Stickles were used on the handle and on the wheels for some bling.
Normally I don't comment on products, but today is an exception. The velvet stickers from Making Memories were purchased from Michael's last week and the adhesive doesn't stick very well; I had to press down numerous times to get a decent picture taken of the card and it was a little frustrating. Looking on the back of the package, the date listed is 2006, so it's possible that this package is outdated and that's the reason the stickers aren't staying in place. I don't want to add anymore glue in fear that it will leave a residue.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look today. We have a beautiful day in Northern Virginia, after two days of gloom and a lot of snowfall; it set a record according to the weather reports. The blessing is that I was able to play in the craft "studio" for two days without having to get out and about. Sweet hubby and I made a quick trip to buy a few groceries on Friday morning before the snow began to accumulate, so we were set for the weekend.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by to take a look; I hope you leave with some inspiration, whether it's checking out what you can win over at the CPS blog, buying a cute stamp set from Papertrey Ink, or using colors you see on the card.

Congrats on the new additions! That card is adorable. And I have had some rotten sticker misadventures so I can totally relate.
