Spotted Elephants!

I made this card for our friend Derek's first birthday yesterday. I just love this Nursery Bash set from Close To My Heart*! And yes, I am thoroughly addicted to polka dots!! I paper pieced the elephants, balloon and "1" on this card and mounted them on dimensionals. This card has some fun texture IRL. When I saw the announcements last week about a new challenge blog starting, I was excited - the challenges are coming from some of my absolute favorite stampers! To paraphrase some classic Rene Zellweger - they had me at Laurie Schmidlin! heh heh So that's where I got the sketch for this card, from the first Our Creative Corner challenge. I have to admit, I really love how this card turned out! I made it yesterday afternoon during naptime - good thing I like it because it seems to have sucked away all of my mojo! I was so excited to get to hang out in my stamp room last night, but I had such stamper's block once I finally got to! Boo! Tomorrow I'll show you one of the cards I made, but it's not my favorite. I also need to show you the cake from Derek's birthday party! I helped his mama decorate it - the party theme was trains (yes Carter was in heaven!) and she found a super cool cake pan that has a bunch of different train cars - it turned out really cute! I forgot to bring my camera yesterday though so I'll show you if I get a photo from Derek's mom. Well, Courtney just woke up and there's a rather unpleasant odor coming from Carter so I guess I better go tend to the kids...! Thanks for stopping by today!
