(Big News)-Diaper Cake and Favors

OMG, I'm too syked. We're going to be GRANDPARENTS!!!!  Our Daughter "Jennifer" is blessing us with our first. And the baby is a Little Girl..So this Sat. I'm doing a Shower with one of her girlfriends at the Church Hall. How exciting.

I wanted to do a Diaper Cake and little Thank You Favors for the guest. I put inside some nice tea and chocolate. YUM...
Here are photos of my FIRST Diaper Cake I made. Her room will be Butterflies and the colors are "Green Galore, Temp. Tur. Purple, and some kind of Blue.
I choose different color ribbons and Purple poppies and White and Pink Roses at the top. The pictures don't do the cake justice, really. It's 3 tiers and flowers, booties, bibs, onesies, and toys all around and diapers for use.. This is my Centerpiece for the Food Table.

And I wanted to make some favors. I used an old SU envie template. I have alot of Retired DSP so I used that for my package. I printed out her name and date and then punched these out for the front with the little square scallop punch. And I used the little tag from the Sale-A-Bration-Punch Stamp Set, the Mobile.

And We're  having a door-prize also, but I didn't have any of those tickets so I made my own. Just used DSP and printed on them the same info. from the front of the favors and ten Numbered the back.

I'm  a little over-whelmed but if I wasn't I'm not doing it right :) Yes, I have my CHECK LISTS!!! I'm scared I'll forget something..

So all the little stuff is done. Now,,,Tomorrow will be the FOOD day.
And then SATURDAY is our Big event. March 12, 2011.

Thanks for staying with me. And I hope you can share in our excitement. Baby Girl is Due April 14th....Can't wait.
After all this I will get back to making cards. But for now my craft room is a mess!!!
Have a marvelous Day.......Joyce

Pretty Elegant Birthday Card

Hello  Everyone! Just wanted to show you a card I 'm doing for our Demonstrators Monthly Meeting. Had to make 10. So I'm showing the front of the Card, the Inside of the card and the assembly line. Here is what I used......

Cardstock: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point
Stampset: (My new favorite) Elements of Style, And "Bring on the Cake"  stamps from both Pt.1 & Pt.2
Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper Folder, Scallop Trim Border Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Big Butterfly Die, Bling-Pearls.

Hope you can use this for someone, this is not a Case, this is my own design. Again I was inspired by an outside Spring Flag for my yard.
My fellow stampers know I have an "Issue" with white cards, but "I DID IT" and I like it. So ladies this is the card your getting tonight!!! Well have to go and I'll try not to take so long in between cards.  Thanks for stopping by my blog and comments are always welcome. A girl needs a little feedback  once in awhile :) Joyce
