It's been almost a month in our new house and with no boxes in sight, I feel like I can finally start to create again, I've been itching for my creative release all summer long and am glad to say I haven't lost my mojo during the long summer break! I just have to get used to my non existent craft room and remembering where I've stashed all my goodies. I used this week Sweet Sunday Sketch 132 and the day light (since our power was knocked out during hurricane Irene) to create two congratulations preggo cards. 

Starting off with Pacific Point, I placed three slices of Baja Breeze 1X5-1/4" each horizontally on my background. The Pear Pizazz inspiration came from the B & Y chipboard from my stash. And living by the ocean has caused boats to water-log my brain, hence the two soft waves with a silhouetted boat riding off into the sunset. My sun was created by snipping each rounded edge (from center to side) from the scallop circle punch. I used Tangerine Tango & Peach Parfait for the sun.

A bit of paper piecing, one of the BEST tension & stress relievers around!! and the striped preggo dress filled up the "O" quite nicely. Now I'm off to pop these in the mail for the beautiful ladies that will be receiving them!!

Punches Used:
Word Window, Scallop Circle, Lg Oval, Med Oval, 1-3/8" Circle
"Congratulations" phrase from SU! Baby Bundle
