Papertrey February Blog Hop


I don't know you guys, these events that happen once a month sure seem to come around quickly...I don't feel like a month has gone by, but here we are again. I swear I am not a year older, but I can remember last years February Blog Hop, and wait, how about 2008's??? Time warp, time warp! Turns out space and time can get pushed around by large objects (hey, that's me, lol!) and the edges of time can warp around and .... oh wait, that's another subject, lol lol lol!!! I was forgetting, you aren't here for physics, just the cards, m'am... I bet Stephen Hawking isn't here tonight, either, lol.


Now, I know you are waiting for a baby card, and I am happy to comply! Luckily, Betsy Veldman did a great one last month, and the Blog Hop was a great opportunity to show it to you!


Hey, I might have loaded it here! Yay if I did!!



So, ok, mine isn't quite the same, lol. Obviously it's a boy, obviously it's not as frilly, and obviously it's not the same sticker. Other than that, lol, it's just the same!!







I promise I'll go trim that left hand ribbon as soon as I get off the computer and finish dinner. Funny how you only see things as others would see them through a different lens...


Let's see: Out on A Limb and I forget with these rolling thunder bolts where the congratulations is... Spring Moss, Pastel Papers, Spring Rain paper covered in Chamomile to get it to the right shade of blue, Spring Rain and the very last of the Enchanted Evening Bitty Dots ribbon (woo hoo! 3 orders in February??). Spring Moss, Sweet blush and Dark Chocolate ink, along with the Tea Dye Duo around the edges. Now here's the best part: see the bright blue background? I was cleaning up some papers and threw that little piece of printed paper in the trash- ta daa! Pulled it out again, because I thought I needed a bit of wowser on the card. In addition, I bet that little baby has been hanging from a clip for three years, no lie. Love finally using something that has been sitting there forever!


So you Designers, how about a baby like this? I mean, Betsy and I both needed one within 6 weeks of each other! Isn't that a trend??



ETA: If you are reading this on Friday, it means the gigundo storm that we are having now, Thursday night, got the better of the electric- it's been off twice now while trying to post.

I like that your ribbon is different lengths! I know exactly what you mean about seeing things thru the camera lens that I never saw with my own eyes. Your card is vibrant and beautiful. I think it is fab just as it is... I wouldn't trim the ribbon. I think it gives it a breezy feel. Just my opinion...
