Happy Monday! This weekend we made the trek over to Worthington, MN to go see the Gobbler Gallop at Turkey Day (no, I am not kidding). There were two turkeys that raced down a downtown street with wall-to-wall people cheering them on. The local turkey (Paycheck Turkey), racing against the badass turkey from somewhere in Texas (Ruby Turkey), won the race. It was hilarious--both the race and "Groundhog Day"-like atmosphere! I definitely see a turkey card in my future....
Anyhoo, I have good news! I'm joining the Bows and Berries design team! When Robin e-mailed, I was super excited...it's been hard to keep it a secret! I found the stamps a while back, around the time I made this card using the "Stache and Glasses" stamp.
Today, Bows and Berries is having a new challenge using GLITTER. I made up this little CAS mini card using the new "Onesie" stamp:
I chuckle every time I see it. I made the sentiment in Word, although I wish I had it in a stamp.
I printed the onesie on the card with the sentiment and then printed and paper pieced the onesie on Authentique paper and popped it up. Isn't that stamp cute?
I wanted to enter this card in the CAS-ual Friday challenge this week (mini cards), so I had to keep my 4" x 4" card simple.
But, I wanted to add some twine across the top. A "pink" girl wouldn't just tie a bow, though. Every configuration I could think of either made it look like it was S&M or a tampon (neither of which you want to think about on a baby card). Finally, my hubby suggested looking at knots on a mountain climbing website. I ended up using the Double Fisherman's knot, although I intentionally left space between the knots so it didn't look like I had a snarled line of twine:
I'm not sure if I tied the knot on the right correctly, but I decided I wasn't trying for a knots merit badge. (ha ha)
Check out the Bows and Berries and CAS-ual Friday challenges! Thanks for looking! Have a great week!
