Baby Buttercup

It's Bellarific Saturday, yes Saturday, I didn't make a typo, and the theme this week was Baby, anything baby.

I used Baby Buttercup by Stamping Bella, to make my little baby girl card, actually it's for my cousin's baby shower, which is in 2 weeks time. We have been told that she's expecting a little girl. At least that helped choosing the colour. I used no DP, just card stock. The white background was done by running it through an embossing tool that I have, but I have seen Paula do this with her Scor Pal and it looks great!

My image was coloured with prismacolor pencils, blended with grumtine (gamsol), cut with and mounted on oval nesties. I added glamour dust with my quickie glue pen to the background, and also a little to the flower. I have to add quickly, glamour dust is really fantastic. If you want a really professional glitter look then that is clearly the best. I have a lot of glitter and lots of glitter glues, but none of them look as professional as glamour dust does.

I think I might need to have a little nap this afternoon, although I want to keep all my spare time rather to do some crafting, but the alarm for my electric fence around the house went off at 4 am this morning. I couldn't see any thing out of the ordinary, and the dogs went outside and were pretty relaxed, I figured it must've been the rat that lives in the garden, hopefully it didn't hurt itself. But after that I couldn't sleep for about 45 minutes, worrying that someone wasn't trying to break in, and now I think a little nap is just what I need, lol! That means I need to end this post so I can get going, and still have lots of crafting time.

Enjoy your weekend everybody!
