Double Trouble

     This card is for the Teapot Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  A lovely couple has been blessed with twins, a boy & a girl - they have been married 19 years and feel blessed by the arrival of these sweet little babies.  I have to admit I don't have tons of baby stamps, but I do have this adorable little boy and girl from Whipper Snapper Designs and love to color them up for cards like this.  Ironically I just made a card using both of them for fun and sent it to the church with some other cards - I just didn't know of anyone to send it to at the time -  LOL!!  Oh well, with that idea still fresh in my head I made another card, and made some changes from the original design.  The baby bottles were made on my Cricut and then layered and shaded with my Copics.  They are mounted with pop ups as is the image itself on the Floral Oval.
     The inside is finished off as well, with a lovely sentiment, mounted with some blue paper in the background, and some sweet little rattles in each corner.  Will get this ready for mailing early next week.

Thanks for stopping by:
Supplies:  Whipper Snapper Stamps, Colored Cardstock, Fiskar Rattle Stamp, Sentiment of unknown origin, Copics, Cricut.

Merry Christmas

     Just want to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas.  This is my favorite time of year.  As a believer I feel the real gift came to me on the cross, when Christ died for me, but you can't have the cross without the cradle first.  I look forward to Christmas morning with my family, there will be gifts, of course, but we will begin our morning reading from Luke as he writes of the birth of Jesus.  We will be grateful, and remember how 'one little baby sweet and small was born to be the King of all'.  Merry Christmas!!
