Paper Smooches Monthly Blog Hop!

So while I'm waiting for Matt and Summer to come up and visit me in Seoul for the day, I had some time to blog hop. I never miss the Paper Smooches blog hop, I haven't won yet, but I love their stamps so much that I keep trying. :) Part of the reason I love their blog hop so much is that it isn't very long, only 5 blogs to hop to. I don't have the patience to hop to many more than that, haha. They have recently teamed up with EAD Designs to make stickers and rub-ons. This monthly they are giving one lucky winner the chance to win a sticker set, a rub-on set and the winner's choice of a stamp set. To participate and learn more about their blog hop, you can visit their blog here. Good luck!

MIA for a little while...

I'm going to be MIA for a little while. I'm currently in Seoul waiting to give birth to my son. My due date is on Wednesday, but it doesn't look like this little guy is coming anytime soon. I have a feeling he will end up being an August baby and I will probably need to be induced. I really miss crafting and can't wait to get back home and try to make something again. My first planned project when I get back is to make my baby sister Casey a belated birthday card. Her birthday is this weekend and I was too tired to make her a card before I left. See you guys in August!

Mini Baby Shower Thank You Cards

Hello everyone! It's been a little while since I've posted anything. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and it's getting hard to get motivated enough to get some crafts done. But after watching Grey's Anatomy all day today and lying around in bed, I finally got the energy to get up and do a little crafting project. :) Tomorrow a friend from work is having her baby shower, she is having a little girl. I am going to get her some other stuff for her baby shower, but I also wanted to make her these cute little thank you notes.  The cards are 4" by 4". I used the New Arrival Cricut cart for the onesie circle and cut it at 3". I punched out the patterned paper from the Basic Grey "Olivia" collection with a 2 1/2" circle punch and then rolled the onesie circle through my Xyron and adhered the patterned paper to the back.
Here is a side view of the card, as you can see, I used Pop Dots to add a little dimension to the card. The "Thank You" stamp is from My Creative Time's "So Grateful For You" set. I embossed it with while embossing powder and then used my i-Rock to set the stones on either side of the saying and give it a little bling.  
I used some ribbon from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy "Leafy" collection to tie them all together. I hope she likes them! :) Thanks for stopping by! <3
