For this week's SSCs Color Combo I used a Michelle Perkett digi that she made for me. I had asked her to make a digi with a boy and girl twin and she did. The digi is called Polly, Dolly and William.I just love what she came up with and knew it would be perfect for this color combo. The colors to use are turquoise, red, white, yellow and bright green was optional.

The cardstock is from my stash , I used dew drops and rubons for the embellishments. I used the happy birthday and swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folders.

SSC Stamp and Scrap

The challenge for this week on SSC's Stamp & Scrap was really fun. I have never used this technique (Spotlight Stamping) before and I really loved it. When my son saw the finished card, he said "Mom I really love it, it is so cool". Thanks baby. For my card I used a Penny Black stamp called Teddy's Party. I used the following Copic markers: B41/Y13/YR15/E74/E77/YG17. I used cardstock from my stash and used a birthday Sizzix embossing folder.

Cards, cards and more cards

When I started the other blog, I never really wanted it public because my husband didn't want pictures of our babies for all to see. So with encouragement from Sara, and lots of help from her coming up with the name, I made this blog for the public. So now I am going to post lots of cards I made along the way to here.
