Good Morning! I want to start off by apologizing if I did not get to visit your blog yesterday. Yesterday ended up being a disaster. Because of all the rain, our basement flooded. That is where my craft room is! I did lose some of my supplies unfortunately but as Scott, my husband says, we can be thankful our whole house is not under water like some areas. Needless to say it was a nerve racking day here. That has never happened to us before but after 16+ inches in less then 9 days, it isn't too surprising. Today it is cloudy but no rain so hopefully the water table will settle before another 5 days of predicted rain!!! Unbelievable!!! Believe me I am praying for it to stop. I hope to be able to craft again soon but since my craft area looks like a cyclone hit it from the may be a while.

Today, I would like to share a card I made on Wednesday for the SC223 challenge. I have a friend that just recently had a baby boy so I kept that in mind when creating this card. I used the Bundle of Love set from SU for the giraffe and sentiment. I have had this set and it was never inked up. What a cute image!

The dp is from DCWV nursery pack. I colored the image with my prisma color pencils and gamsol.


Swing on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs store because it's punch a bunch frenzy. All punches are 25% off while supplies last. Hurry because the sale ends on June 21 at 12 a.m. est. You may want to subsricbe to the Our Daily Bread Designs News since there will be a new special each week!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Thanks for your wonderful comments! I hope today will be a much more cooperative day so I can do some blog hopping!
