Get cozy, lots going on in today’s post!
I have been making baby cards like crazy lately – everyone I know is having a new little someone! I needed a boy & girl baby card for 2 friends (luckily in different countries!) so the current challenge over at Papertrey Paper Dolls to make matching boy & girl cards was perfect. These cards are also for the Paper Piecing Challenge over at Moxie Fab World and ‘Piece Out, Man!’ challenge at A Passion for Papertrey!
The ‘boy’ card (though I think it could be for a little girl as well!) is also for the challenge over at Jay Gee’s Nook – the colors were inspired by her gorgeous photo. The card is also for the Get Krafty challenge at There She Goes Stamps. This card is also one of my much-loved rejects!
The ‘girl’ card colors were inspired by the colors over at Off the Wall Craftiness – I love the inspiration picture!
Here are Jay Gee & Kim Wilson’s inspiration photos:
Now, on to something very special! The lovely Jay Gee recently awarded me with a Liebster Award – the object of the blog is to point out fairly new blogs or perhaps blogs with less than 100 followers. Now there are dozens (lots of dozens!) of blogs in my reader – I get inspiration from everywhere and all the bloggers I come across are important to me! It is really hard to choose 3-5 to highlight, but here are some that are standing out recently in the personal pursuit:
Damask Love – ‘Dr. Amber’ – such a great CAS style!
Paper Crafts by Laurel – Laurel Beard (she may have tons of followers, but can’t see how many at the moment – either way, she’s fab!)
Humble Chan – Chan Vuong (hugely popular already, but can’t get enough of her cards, so wanted to give a little shout out!)
Ohhh, there are soooo many more I wish I could include, but I think I’ll leave it at that for today!
