How time flies

Isn't it unbelievable how time flies. It feels like just a month ago when my cousin told us she's expecting again, and now it's almost time for her baby shower. Soon I'm gonna be in a rocking chair in the old age home. Hmmm, can you make cards while in a rocking chair, lol!

To me Pregabella is ideal for a baby shower card, cause the baby isn't there yet, and it is all about the mom now, okay somewhat!

I originally had other colours and paper intended for this card, but it so did not want to work out. I can only sit there for so long struggling with something till it's time to break away and do something that will work.

I coloured her with prismacolor pencils and blended it with grumtine (gamsol, sansador), then cut out with nesties and this time I 'framed' the image with nesties, instead of matting it. I like it, and I used silicone to layer it. Was easier to manoeuvre and get nicely lined up that way.

I distressed the edges of the last mat a little, it looked like it needed 'something' and I must say the distressing just did the trick. The crocheted flower is one of my mom's but I added a little glamour dust with my quickie glue pen. Baby stuff just has to have glitter!

I'm so sad the weekend is finished, it went far too quickly. I only got time to make this one card, that's just wrong, there should've been plenty more. Okay I was out yesterday, I went to Jo'burg Day, a music festival with local artists, but it rained, and we got wet, and we really tried to be brave and pretend we didn't notice that it was raining and that we were soaking wet, but that did not last long. We cut our day short and went home. Such a pity cause it would've been really good!

So that is it for the whole weekend. One post, short and sweet, and almost bed time for me. In fact I feel quite sleepy now from the glare of the screen. Have a great week, and make lots of gorgeous cards for me to get inspiration from, lol!

I love this card and the colors are perfect. Ya know, I never think of using the negative of the Nesties. I guess my mind only works in one direction. Great card! Sorry your weekend event got rained out.
