I bet you guys thought I quit already. Well you can't get rid of me that easy :). I have had a very very busy week and memorial day weekend with my family. My sister Becca Cruger from Damsel of Distressed Cards even came to visit me! The sad part to that is that we were not able to actually sit down and and put our crafting minds together making cards....BOO! :(

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite baby cards I have ever created! I have been getting baby fever pretty badly the past month and my way of combating that is to craft and make baby related cards. This normally purges my thoughts of babies.

While making this card I experimented with the new Cricut Explore, which by the way is AMAZING, and used it to cut out the onesie, circle, duck, and banner.

I embossed the onesie and card with the Sizzix Bigshot embossing folders to add a little bit of texture to the card.

After I got it all put together I didn't think it had enough pizzaz for me so I took perfect pearls and painted the duck with gold. I also took green and blue chalk and went around the edge of the card and WALA! My masterpiece was complete.

I am going to link this card up with the Fusion Card Challenge  and the Crafty Gals Corner Critter Challenge 



  1. Still such an adorable card! Love all the texture you've got going on. Don't forget to add this to some challenges! You can find a list of challenges at either of these locations:
