Baby Bear

Whew! What a weekend......great weather and we were running all around....

We got the neatest package from my husband....he sent my daughter a children's book. In the back of the book is a DVD of him reading the book to her so that she could read the book along with him. It was the greatest thing and she LOVES it. This is a service of the USO and it is just an amazing gift. The other two kids cannot wait to get theirs.

Ok......I finally finished this card that I alluded to on Friday. This card was completed 10 minutes at a time (literally!)
The idea for this card popped into my head when I was working on the card in the post below. This design works for a new baby--boy OR girl!

I thought this sweet bear from First Christmas (Gina K Designs by Asela Hopkins) would look so cute sitting in the moon with some sparkly stars all around:

See....the Santa hat looks like a cute little baby hat when you use it in this way. This stamp will get a lot of mileage from me that is for sure!

I paired it with a sentiment from Tag Lines! (Gina K Designs).

More details: The little adhesive stitching is from Cloud 9, something I have had in my stash for awhile and have never used. I covered the sticky stars (I got from Jody Morrow HERE) with doodlebug glitter so the stars really sparkle. I created the moon by cutting a circle with a Nestability die (Spellbinders) and then cutting it into a crescent. I just added some sponging around the edges.

Materials used: Stamps-First Christmas, Tag Lines (Gina K Designs); cardstock-white (Gina K Designs); blue (SU!); designer paper- Lime Green Linen (The Paper Studio); Memento black ink; ink- barely banana, bashful blue (SU!); sponge; Copic markers; redline star shapes; doodlebug glitter-yellow; 3D Gel stickers, Travel (Cloud9 Design); brads (SU!).

Hope you all had a great weekend! I did!

Thanks for stopping by!

What an AWESOME thing the USO is doing with that! To actually hear their father's voice reading a book, when he's so far from home. Dang..can I send them some money or something? That makes me have tears in my ears.

Love your card too! {{{HUGS!}}}

Your card is just ADORABLE!!

I've read about the service making DVD's of parents reading a book so that they can "read" with their kiddos at home. I'm sooo glad your DH was able to participate! That will be something to treasure FOREVER
