Our Beautiful Little Niece

Hi everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July and spent some time with your family.  I did a non-traditional meal for our day - I roasted a turkey.  I found that I still had one in the freezer a few days ago and while we did not want a Thanksgiving meal, I though why not cook it and make some delicious sandwiches from it.  So that's what we did.  It took up my afternoon though so no time was spent crafting.

Now I know what you are thinking - why did you not craft in the morning?  Well I spent the morning at Phoenix Children's Hospital visiting our newest niece.  She was born in June but needed a little extra care so she has been at the hospital every since.  Hopefully she will get to go home on Friday.  Her name is Sloane and she is so precious.  I thought I would show you the card I made for her.

I decided to do blocks to spell out her name.  I used pinks and purples because she is a girly girl.  The bear was cut out using my Cricut Machine.  I used a product on him called Fun Flock.  It adds texture and actually makes him fuzzy!!

Hopefully you can see some of the flock in this picture.  I used black glitter on the nose and mouth to help them stand out.  Normally I would show you the inside of the card.  However, it does contain a photo and I did not get mom's permission to share it with you.  I placed the photo on the inside panel of the card and used the other side to write her birth information and a special message just for her.  It turned out really cute and her mommy loved it.  

Well that's it for today.  I will be back tomorrow to end the week with another fun card for you to see.  I do hope you will stop by again to visit.  Thanks for dropping in today!
