I *heart* Mommy

Tonight I decided to pair up the new Gina K Wee Tees set (which will be released on Thursday with six (6!!!) other new sets!!) with one of Melanie's other sets, Little Tees. One of the things I loved most about Little Tees was the "I *heart*" stamps - I've proclaimed my love for both cupcakes and Duran Duran with them on previous cards! :-) Well when I saw that Melanie included the word "Mommy" in Wee Tees, I knew I had to make a card saying "I *heart* Mommy". Wouldn't this be a sweet card for a mommy's first Mother's Day? Plus, what new mommy can resist getting at least one onesie that says someplace on it that the baby *hearts* her? I know I couldn't! For this card I turned to one of my favorite color combos that I use fairly often - Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue and red (in this case, PTI's Pure Poppy Bitty Dots DP). I got this card together and stared at it for the longest time - it was a little boring, it was missing something. So I decided to sew on it. I cannot tell you what a difference a little bit of stitching makes! It completely brings the card together and makes it pop. If you haven't tried sewing on cards, I truly recommend you give it a go. I just love the finished look it gives a card. Well it's late, and I still want to spend a little time with Edward and Bella tonight so I better go. Yes, I've finally succombed and am reading it - I always thought all these middle-aged women in love with a teenage vampire were a little whacked - but now I am becoming one of them!!! ;-) Thanks for stopping by, hopefully I'll see you back here again tomorrow. :-)
