MCT Guest Designer: Liz and Blog Candy!

Hello Paper Lover and My Creative Time Friends!  As I'm sure you know,  Emma is by her son, baby Aaron's bedside while he is in the hospital.  So her design team and other special guests will be covering for her.  I'm sure you will love all the projects they have in store for you!

Today is my day to share with you! I wanted to make a card for "baby Aaron, however I wanted to use Emma's newest release and still make it "boyish".  So here's what I came up with, hope you like.


Wow, it's been sometime since I've used my cricut and lots of pieces!
I added a wobble to the boy, every kid big and small loves a wobble!  :)
And I used Peachy Keen Boy Mates for his sweet little face!

I had a bit of trouble with the red pen.  When I added the glue for the glitter (yes I glittered his baseball...I couldn't help myself!) it smeared the red  :(
I also glittered trophy :)


I used Fly Away With Me Sentiments and  2 1/2 burlap ribbon from my Boutique!
You can go to my Blog for the complete receipe!

Recipe:
Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge
boy cut at 2.32 x 3.24
clothes and toy layers to match
diamond cut at 4.54 x 3.24
paper: Teresa Collins, PTI, scraps
white pen, black pen, ink, chalk, glitter

I decided to have a little giveaway, I will be giving one lucky winner Limited Edition Metallic 1mm Hemp.  All you have to do is leave a comment here and on Emma's Blog with a way to get a hold of you!  Since it's coming up on a holiday weekend or two, you have until July 8, 2012 at midnight PST to do so!


Please continue the prayers and good thoughts for Emma, Baby Aaron, and the rest of their family. Many people have asked about sending cards to them, and I know they would be much appreciated. Here is the address:

Too cute. Love the diamond and the cute little player what a great card. Also - what a great DT she has for stepping up and making stuff for the blog while she's attending to her little guy.

Hmmm metalic hemp -- sounds pretty cool.

The card for Baby Aaron is so super cute! I'm sure he will love it! I love your 2.5" burlap ribbon. I've been trying to decided what items I'd love to purchase without breaking the bank. Lol. Sorry about the smeared red, it's barely noticeable to me :) I love your idea of glittering the ball. HeHe.

Such a darling card for a darling young man. Boys do like glitter also, they just won't come out and say so. Wishing baby Aaron a speedy recovery know that they have an idea of what is wrong.

I love the theme, colors and textures. I can't help adding glitter as well -- there must be a masculine use for it! :-)
