Better Late.....

Last week I thought I was incredibly organized, and I was out of ideas in terms of card making, so I decided to take a look at Mojo Monday and see what kind of sketch they had come up with for the week. I found this, and thought it was a decent sketch and I could do something with it.

The problem. I wasn't as organized as I thought. I didn't get around to actually taking pictures of the card I did for last week's sketch until this morning, so I didn't get a chance to upload it, but oh well, its better late then never right?

I didn't do a round card, because well I'm not that good and I have no idea how to actually make a round card. I didn't make the card square either because I don't have square envelopes and the last time I attempted to make one it was an abysmal failure. So I went with my standard card.
I needed to make another baby card, so once again I had to turn to the only set of baby stamps that I own, my trusted little SU A New Little Someone. Gosh if this set didn't exist I'm not sure what I would do. I made this for a friend who is due to have her 2nd in a matter of weeks, and she knows she is having a girl. I figured why not go with complete pink overload. I don't often like to mix patterns of papers but I thought using 3 different patterns and a solid with this card would work out well because the patterns were all fairly subtle.
I have massive issues with bows. I have a horrible time tying decent ones, so I cheated a bit on this one and just made a simple loopy ribbon and used a brad to hold it in place.
All in all I'm pretty pleased with my little pink bunny. Now all I have to do is get my butt in gear and get organized enough to actually sew the gift I'm making for my friend. We are supposed to be going out for dinner next Wednesday so it gives me a bit of time, but I'm the queen of procrastination.
