Sorry about the last few days of being MIA! I had every intention of uploading something, but I have kept very busy doing other blog related stuff and hadn't really been stamping. I even got a new stamp set on Wednesday that I haven't mounted yet... NO, that's NOT NORMAL for me! Maybe I'll get around to using it today... but it's supposed to be in the mid 70's... decisions decisions.
So the card I did make yesterday is long-overdo for a friend that had triplets about a month ago... I wanted it to be just perfect, full of thoughtful and meaningful details..
Well, I didn't quite get there, but this is what did finally surface: So my story is this, I wanted to symbolize having three babies but also acknowledge that they are individuals (if that makes sense)... so I went in search of a variety of baby stamps and happened to find three (in all different sets) that are all round in nature! Now we're talkin'! I kept the colors all the same but in different order of layers. This card was inspired by Sunday's Featured Stamper, Kharmagirl (her card here). I love her work. Check out her gallery and this challenge here.
Thanks for checking in... for anyone who might have been checking my gallery for more samples of the Build-a-Flower class cards I have posted a few more pictures now. You can go check them out!
