Wednesday afternoon our son and his girlfriend birthed our beautiful grandson, Archer. We've been on pins and needles for a week as Cass's due date was the 4th! This grand event gave my heart a real boost as this Thursday was the 1 year anniversary of my mom's death. This card has the perfect sentiment for my heart.
I used a brand new embossing folder by FSJ called "Above the Clouds" (page 188 in the online catty) which the "Cloud Dreams" dies (page 183 online) perfectly match (but I don't have yet). The stamped images are the "Lift Me" ATC set (page 87 online) which I cut apart the balloons. I used "Denim Days" and "Pool Play" card stocks (page 201online) along with "Black Licorice" and "Beach Ball" inks (same pages as card stocks). And I just love the "Blue Skies" sequins (page 210 online)!
Here you can see the cloud embossing better. Please forgive the little shadow between the balloons and the cloud on the top right. There is a scratch on my camera lens. I may have to start using my phone but my camera is so easy to download.
And the sequins. I found some 1/8" glue dots that are perfect to adhere them! To get the online catalog please click on the FSJ logo at the top of the sidebar to go to my replicated site then click Catalog and download. It has 218 pages (the actual catty has 221). There are oodles of dies that match stamp sets. But some of the product has different release dates so you will need to see that info in my FSJ Specials page.
Upon the great text from our son.... "It's a BOY!" I did dance around and let out some whoops! This is our 4th grandchild but first boy! We also have 2 great grandsons and I danced and whooped for all when we were notified of their births. I can't wait until I can get to WY to see the babies!
