Sweet baby card

Hello dear readers!
Today you have me--Margaret!  I was able to return to my home on Saturday.  Today I unpacked the last of my stamps but I haven't quite unpacked everything of the rest of my stuff.  Been in a bit of a slump...perhaps the let down after all the drama of the fire.  BUT...tomorrow Kathy is coming to visit tomorrow and I'm very excited!

So today's card is for my sister's baby shower.  She is due at the end of July but her shower is in a couple of weeks.  I cannot go because I am taking herbal classes every weekend all summer and in order to get my certificate, I need to attend each class. :(  However, I did want to make an extra special card.  We think the baby is a boy, hence the blue theme.   I fell in love with these little baby shoes by Impression Obsession and just had to have them.  I knew they'd come in handy one day. :)

There are of course many stickles on the shoes.  And a bit liquid pearl.  The edge is Martha Stewart.  The paper is from a pad that I bought at Michael's many many years ago (I think the brand is DCW).  I am crazy about the ribbon.  I found it in this itty bitty store in Brooklyn that had all sorts of odds and ends when I was visiting my parents--and now I have a purpose for it. :)

I will enter this card into the Sweet Stampin' Challenge "Something Sweet"  it is subject to interpretation so I'm thinking it's a "Sweet baby card"

Well thanks for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow!  Margaret
