Hot Rod Baby Shower Card...

Hi there, friends!  Today, I want to show you a card I made for a friend that had her Baby shower recently.  We are so excited for her because she has 2 girls (4 and 2 years old) and really wanting a boy for her third child.  And she did...she will finally hold the little fella in a month or so.  So, I made a simple card for her together with a crochet baby blanket (I made for the first time) that I will be posting here pretty soon as well.  I didn't have a lot of time to make an elaborate card (blame it on the sleepless nights completing the blanket...LOL) so, here's what I came up with.  I used an A2 card for the base and lined it up with another white that I embossed with my Cuttlebug.  The DP was from my scraps, a nice ribbon, 3 different color buttons from Paper Studio and the sentiment is from Clearly Wordsworth.  The main image is from Inkadinkado that I paper pieced and colored with my Prismacolor markers.  The inside message is from Cloud 9.  I appreciate simple styles but when I am the ones making it, it seemed like it was not enough...LOL  Maybe because I got used to spending lots of hours making one card.  Anyway, my friend liked it and love, love, love the baby blanket.  If you want to see the Baby Blanket I made, browse on top of this post and you'll find some pics...So, let me know what you think.  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Oldie but a Goodie featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    One Stop Craft featuring "For the Boys" 
3.    Here Come the Boys featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.    Make it Monday featuring "Anything Goes"

HOT ROD BABY SHOWER CARD WITH ENVELOPE:

Yesterday (Memorial Day), we stayed at home all day long, mostly sleeping as we stayed up so late last Sunday- early Monday morn.  And tonight is no exception...Past midnight, we haven't got dinner yet...LOL  My hubby is barbecuing outside still...I know it's silly but were such night owls...Anyway, I thank God for the lives of the people in the Military.  For their selfless service to our country accompanied by much sacrifices.  I pray for safety to all these men and favor from the Lord Jesus as they continue to put their trust in Him.  Have a wonderful day and God bless y'all!
