sounds like fun, huh? well, let's get to it then...

my scallops project was super fun to create, and i totally love the results.

it amazes me to say this, but this has to be my first CARD creation in... forever? i've been busy working on mini-scrapbooks and before Christmas i was scrambling to finish mini-albums for some family members. i just didn't fit cards in!

so here we go...
this card features a Fiskars scallop punch called "threading water" that i absolutely LOVE and always come back to... it's timeless and cute--perfect for just about everything. paired up some dinosaur paper from MME and the sentiment "Lil Baby Stomps" (including the DeNami "baby" swirl script sentiment). the inside is one of my favorites because it says, "congratulations on your little guy's first steps!" hehe, super cute, huh? :D i know who i'll be sending this one to!

this card was easy, but cute... kinda what we all need every now and then, huh?

anyway, thanks for visiting! i love seeing all your lovely encouraging remarks!

also, don't forget that your next stop is over at Amy Smidebush's blog. you're sure to enjoy her project--she's such a sweetie too! thanks again, and happy hopping :D
