LOTV Little Sleepy Head



Happy Day to everyone!!! I hope your week is a magnificent one!!! Mine is quite busy but that's how I like it!!! I have my regular trip to the oncologist this afternoon and what a bummer that is--just messes up my entire day!!

I wanted to show you a sweet little card I made using one of the latest images from Lili of the Valley and this image is so darn cute that I could just squeeze that little cuddled down bear!! He is Little Sleepy Head and he was colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the mobile. The base of the card is Bazzill, the double matting is PTI, the DP is from the Kaisercraft Lullaby Collection, and all background panels are machine stitched. I was challenged by my lovely friend Gunilla to make a shaker card sooooooooo...here it is, Gunilla! I used an IO Shake It and cut out the openings with a Nestie, surrounding the image with some lovely blue lace from my sweet friend Suzan. Thanks, sweetie, you know I LOVE lace!!! I filled the shake it with It's A Boy confetti from the local party shop. For the horizontal I used some polka dot grosgrain and dangled a baby footsies charm from the double flat bow.Finally I added a baby boy bead bracelet and some polka dot buttons to the corners!



The inside is very simple, adding another horizontal with double flat bow to the first panel and on the jotting panel, a sentiment from the For You Circular Sentiments set and several baby buttons.

As you all are aware, I am much too old to even know anyone who needs a baby card, so if you have a special need for a baby boy card, I will be more than happy to send this one out to you! Just jot me a note or leave it in a comment!!

Well, that's it for this day! Thank you so much for dropping by--it is such a joy to see that you have been here! Have a delightful day and until the next time, I send great big hugs to each of you!!

Hi Jacque~

For someone who doesn't make a lot of shaker or baby cards...this is so special. Even if you made them day in and day out...it would be so special. I love the soft blue that you went with...that lace is gorgeous, and I like how you pleated it around the circle. He looks so comfy with all of this softness. The embellishments are delightful...and of course the image is! I love the little mobile over his head. (They think of everything!) I really like the inside portions of the card, too.

Prayers have already been lifted up for you, dear friend.

He IS Able!
