Baby Card & A Tag

I never got around to posting this baby card that I made for Patsy's baby, sweet little Eleanor! I had to get a photo of it from Patsy, because when I finished making it, I sent it off without photographing it first! I was very pleased with the way it turned out.


I used My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie papers and sentiment. The paper is gorgeous and double-sided, and I used a strip of the reverse at the bottom of the card after using my threading water punch on it. I bought the lace at a garage sale, and it looks so pretty on this baby card. Just to make sure that the lace stayed in placed, I held it in place with five brads. I used up some of my alphabet beads and added Eleanor's name to the front of the card. Last, some buttons, ribbon, and a safety pin were my finishing touches. I think this is sweet and so cute! As long as Patsy liked it, that's all that matters!

I was tagged by Deborah. Here are the rules. Link person that tagged you and people you are tagging and notify them! Have fun!

My 6 "quirks" / things that drive me crazy!
1. People who chew with their mouth open.
2. People who chew gum with their mouth open and smack their gum.
3. Someone having a loud cell phone conversation in public.
4. My inability to declutter and throw things out! (I'm trying!!)
5. Walking barefoot on a wet floor. You know, like through a locker room! Ugh! I need to have flip flops on!!
6. Not having enough time in the day! I always want to get so much done, but that never happens!

I'm NOT going to tag anyone else, because I don't like to leave anyone out! So, if you want to put this tag on your blog, please do! Consider yourself tagged!

Whew, it's hot and humid here today. I hate the humidity! I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Georgous card! I'll sometimes remember after I have the envelope sealed and ready to mail that I forgot to scan or take a picture of a card and have to decide, I I want to waste an envelope?
