Unity: Friday Friends With Flair
I needed a baby girl card for some friends who were just blessed with their new addition to their family. I like this set by Unity: Time and Season with the birds and the quote by Charles Dickens (Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of it's own) for new babies. This family has an older boy and now three girls, so I colored the smaller birds to match their family and the larger bird I imagine is the mommy bird, daddy is away getting food or something. With all the dreary winter landscape I decided to do something a bit more bright and full of life because isn't that what a new baby is all about? Bringing new life and brightness (joy) into our lives? I colored the image with Copic markers and matted on a pink layer. I punched a flower (EK Success) and added some leaves (McGill). I also added a yellow strip punched with the Martha Stewart border punch and placed it behind the image. I added a sentiment inside: Look who's here! Congratulations.
Update: I have been sending cards out on a pretty regular basis, but I do not think I will reach 365 for the year unless we can count Christmas cards. I hope you are also taking up this challenge and spreading some joy by sending your handmade creations to those who may need a blessing.
Have a great weekend. Stay warm.
