I have been pretty quiet here, I haven't stamped at all last weekend. Saturday I spent good time with my family. Yesterday, we went to church and to Red Robin for lunch. After that we went to Craft Warehouse and I got some nice Designer Paper for 0.15 and 0.20 piece, yessssss, they were 75% off .
Last night I cut a lot of felt and I created my own felt flowers. I cut more than 70 flowers in 4 different colors, I really want to use them for my cards.
Last 2 days I had cramps and no too much energy for anything. I promise I will come back tomorrow with a card to show you.
Ok, now good news. I had my doctor's appointment today I had the results for the CT Scan I had a week ago, it shows nothing wrong. Doctor is not sure why I still having the lump and the cause is unknown, but it is not malign.
Now, for a while I don't want to see more doctors, I need a break LOL, I've seen them to many times in just a couple of months.
I hope you had a great weekend and I'll come back tomorrow.
God bless you

So, here I start:
Materials I used:
- 1 piece of 7.5" x 7.5" of DP.
- 1 piece of coord. CS 4 3/8" x 4 3/8" ( for the back of your card)
- 1 piece of CS 3 2/8" x 2 2/8 ( for the front of your card)
- Embellishments (if you want)
- Stamps (I used Baby Jesus is Born)
Turn your DP facing down and fold them vertically (both sides)
After that , your DP is going to look like this.
Turn your DP facing in, and put the folded lines together.
Press them together, it will look like this.
Then, fold the square in half, it will look like this.
Adhere the main piece of cardstock in the back, and the small in your front, You can decorate as you want.
I used for the back blue and light blue CS and for the front light blue, cream and blue.
After the decoration your card will look like this.
Your card when opened will look like this.
I hope you like and if you try it, leave a comment, I will love to see your creations.

I bought this paper so long ago when I was making cross stitch cards, you can see them in my SCS gallery. Those paper have been there shouting so loud, pick me, pick me, LOL, so I decided to use them and make them happy.
My baby dress is just as the other I created the other day, This time I used very thin satin pink ribbon (bought it at Walmart), white ribbon for the waist and some ribbon flower. I also used a pink ric rac for the neck shape.
I hope you like it.
The small shoe 3' x 1 1/2 ', super small and kind of hard to fold. The big shoe is 4' x 2 1/4'.
Also, to match the dress I tried this cute baby shoes, made them totally in DP, the same as the dress but in a light color.The fake feathers are from my DD toy, she lest me use them. I added also a brad. I stamped a little sentiment at the front, I used the SO CUTE from Peek-A-Boo set and Welcome Baby from Inky Antics.
Hope you like them.

So, after that we went grocery shopping, came back home around 4 pm, then I started dinner, and my day was gone, I can't stamp at night, I don't have good ligthing in this room so I prefer to do during the day, I have 4 projects that I want to do tomorrow, I hope I have the time to finish them all.
