SOS 30 - Tag it, krafty!

This week's challenge is Tag It, Krafty! - either use a tag, kraft card stock or a DillyBeans digital image to create a project. Seeing as I love kraft card stock (sooo versatile!), I went with that. Oh ya, and our printer's borked (again) as well, so digi's are out ATM.


Anywhooo.. (heh). A friend emailed me last week, and told me her sis was about to adopt a 9yo, and asked me to create a card for each her sis & soon-to-be nephew. I had NO SWEET CLUE what to make, but I got to thinking about some of the baby cards I make.. trees... owls.. searched my pinned cards on pinterest & found more trees & owls... but not the "right" card. THEN I sat down at my desk tonight, and what's looking back at me? This Freakin' Adorable stamp from Unity.  and look - mom & "son" right next to each other. Poifect! I grabbed my markers, and started coloring away. Eventually, I based the cards on chat's lovely merry & bright card, but used kraft/crumb cake & baja breeze instead of her more vivid colors, as well as a kraft base & shimmery white square & main image panel/sentiment vs whisper white. A bit of baja breeze sponging & seam binding ribbon, et voilĂ ! I've put a pic of both cards to the left, and a close up of "mom's" card below.

I think you did a great job on the theme that she requested....and that is just not a card you could go to pick up at the hallmark store...they just don't carry that kind of theme! thanks for playing with shopping our stash this week!
