Where did it go?

Summer, that is. It's already the 2nd week in August, and it seems like I didn't get around to half of the summer plans I had. Next Monday, the kids both start school, and the week after that is my first week of college classes in 10 years. So here's to the last days of summer vacation! ☺

Sorry I took a little hiatus, it seemed like I just had no projects to post since they were tied up in challenges or contests. And the longer I don't blog, the harder it is to come back to it. I have a sweet little card to share today though, a simple baby card I made for a friend who is expecting. The paper was from my good friend Alyssa, she sent it to me just for the heck of it! Gotta love scrappy friends ♥ However, I don't know who made the paper, it appears to be from a stack. ****update, Alyssa says that it's from the DCWV stack "Be Mine."

I folded the largest pink ribbon back onto itself 5 times, securing it with tape on the card base and then a strip of tape on top of the folded ribbon. The 2nd pink ribbon was tied around that to keep it in place, and then the lacy ribbon on top was adhered to that. The bottom of the card was cut with an EK Success diamond scallop border punch. I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped oval for the light pink oval in back, and the front oval was cut from patterned paper. The blue flower is a Prima, and the buttons are just from my stash. Last but not least, the sentiment is from Papertrey's Mega Mixed Messages (love that set btw!) and I used RoseBud Memento ink.

Hope you all enjoy the moment today, those summer days are dwindling!
