Combination challenge


Here is my take on Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge 239. I combined it with my getting to know you challenge for my new blog group, The Sweet Dreamers. Check out their blogs linked to my side bar, what a talented group of ladies we have, it will be such fun getting to know them better and being inspired by their talent!

This card uses one of my favorite color combinations, pink, grey and black. I included some of my favorite stamping stuff, black mini brads, ribbon, nesties, crystal effects and scallops. I picked this particular stamp, because it is me for the last several years. I'm due with number 4 on November 2nd. My oldest is 5, so I've spent the last several years pregnant. Now, I can't let you think I actually look like this girl when I'm pregnant! She is missing the swollen ankles, bags under her eyes, etc. I think she looks much cuter than I do pregnant, but the sentiment is pretty cute and fits my life at this time.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
