Friends with Flair... New Baby!

My neighbor just had a little baby boy & I of course had no cards available. Now, since you all have had a taste of my style thru the past several weeks/months, you know that I tend towards the simple. And yep, that's how this one is... with the exception of the huge bow ~ which if I were making this card to send I would never have put on... but since I am hand delivering it ~ hello, bow!!! I guess I've received too many beautiful cards ruined thru the mail system (having the brads/eyelets/rhinestones/pearls ripped from the card, etc) so I tend to go for the very mailable cards ~ well, I make cards, not fantabulous works of art that should be in the National Gallery on display ~ so they aren't going to have all the latest & greatest... just so you're warned.... lol... tends to mean I won't win any contests or be published or featured... but at least my hopes are that they will get to my intended unharmed. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... I've rambled long enough & now I'm off for a busy day at the school ~ between the PTA stuff & recycling, I'm like a permanent fixture there...

I added a bit of twinkle with Spicas & a soft glow with Copics (cause don't all new Moms have a twinkle in there eyes & simply glow ~ at least for the first couple of days... til the lack of sleep kicks in)

Deets: Stamps: Unity
Paper: Unknown
Cardstock: GP
Misc: Copics; Nesties; recycled ribbon (unknown); Spica

Don't forget to visit the rest of my fellow Unity Flairicious Friends & leave a bit of love! It's always appreciated!!!

I am so jealous you have the label 8 nesties! I love your simple card with the big bow! It is so nice to be able to hand deliver something because it makes it okay to put that extra layer on!
