ETA: The stamped image is “Bella” by Whipper Snapper

Well, today is an interesting holiday where I live.  Pretty much the rest of Canada had a holiday on Monday but until I woke up this morning I got the POTENTIAL of having a holiday today.  Luckily, the holiday is a GO!

That’s right, my holiday is based on the weather!!!  And where I live one does not peg their hopes on weather.  You can read about this holiday HERE or you can move on (I’m going to – at least until next year) and check out the card I made last night.

I need to bulk up the supply of baby cards so I’m trying to get a couple of images ready in case inspiration strikes.  Inspiration did strike last night but once I finished the card I realized the papers were a bit of a rehash…I think I even used the same ribbon as the last time I made a baby card…good grief!  At least the layout is different.

I used my Create a Critter cartridge for the background on this card (I don’t own the top note die…I think my friend Karen does so I might borrow it sometime if she doesn’t mind.  Maybe we could do a temporary swap on an item or two).  I think this shape works fairly well as a replacement.  I need to install my Design Studio software so I can play with the sizes a little more.  I would have preferred this to be a shade bigger but can only go up by pre-set increments on my Cricut if I don’t use the software.

Poor old Bella is sitting on a dark coloured surface because I didn’t like the colour I used originally and could only cover it with something darker.  Not ideal but at least I made a card!

Off to do some outdoor work – I would rather be making cards but sometimes you have to act like a grown up.

Enjoy your day!
