Have a Wonderful Day!

I made this card to enter in Doodle Pantry Digital Challegne #30. The theme is to use a Doodle Pantry image. I just love their images and I love the fact that some of their images are already colored such as this one. I can not color this good with my Copic Markers yet. I have a few friends in my life who are bird lovers so I am always looking for pretty bird images for card making. This one really caught my eye. It also came with this sentiment. 

This card is very simple but the image was so stunning I didn't want to do anything else for fear of taking away the focus from the iamge. I cut out the image and used foam tape to give the image some dimension. I did the same on the senitment. The background paper is Authentique's collection "Original". It was leftover from the letters I covered using this same paper line for my grandson's name. 

Vanessa's baby shower was Saturday. It was very nice.
These are the letters I altered for Vanessa. The baby's name will be Kashton.
My SIL wanted to do Kashton's room in a sports theme. It's hard to tell in these pics but the stickers are  dimensional. The only sport I didn't use was soccer mostly because the stickers available would have clashed terribly with this paper.

I was a little worried about whether or not Vanessa would like these as I didn't ask for her input. When this paper came in a few months ago it just seemed like the right paper to get! She seemed pleased at the shower.

This banner was made by her friend. Didn't she do a good job?! It hung over the food table.
The gift table.
The table decorations. The balloons wouldn't cooperate. There are mustache's on them.
Here's a better look.
Inside the "mustache" on the table are diapers.

Had to get a pic of these two adorable little dolls! This is Kennedy's buddy Ari. Her mom and Kennedy's Mom have been friends since grade school.
Vanessa also had on "mustache" earrings.
These mustaches on straws were too much fun!
Kennedy helped showing off the wonderful gifts.
Kashton's due date is March 4th. If he's anything like his sister he will be a February baby. Whatever the case it won't be long now! Have a good one!


  1. I love how your Doodle Pantry card turned out! Those altered letters spelling out Kashton's name are just awesome!!!

  2. Love the blue bird card! Even I like to use a pre-colored image now and then and Doddle Pantry's has some really cute ones! The "Kashton" letters turned out really cute. For me, creating boy type decor and even cards is a challenge but you nailed it with these! Love the shower photos. The decorations were really cute!
