It's just paper

I made this card for my aunt's birthday, and it nearly drove me nuts! The chiyogami/yuzen paper is so thin and delicate that the Cricut kept ripping it apart. I wasted an entire A4 sheet of the stuff trying to cut the fan out and was almost in tears. I finally figured out (after the entire episode) I'd have to interface the paper on thin CS, probably with JAC paper. Why didn't I think of it earlier???? D'OH! Ah, well. I keep telling myself it's just paper. :)

I got a shout out on the Wee Memories blog for this card, and I'm absolutely thrilled to bits!! Hoot hoot hooray! Thanks for stopping by!

So, it's been a hole month since I've posted anything, but I have a good excuse.....really! My BFF got married last month, and it was absolutely beautiful! Anyhoo, onto the latest FTL sketch from the fabulous Clean and Simple Stamping ladies.

I had to make a super quick card an hour before leaving the house for a baby shower. Talk about last minute.....and I don't create very well under pressure. However, my muse is on holiday and I had no inspiration prior to my last-minute panic.

I just adore PTI's Night Night Moon stamp set, not that I've used it very much. The little diaper stamp is soooo cute, as well as the duck and the bottle. They're pretty sure the baby will be a girl, but I'm not fond of pink and chose to go yellow and green. Thanks for looking!
