With Sheri Willshire's approval....

With my good friend Sheri's approval, I offer this baby card.  Sheri is the "queen of flowers"; she makes them and she uses them.  If you'd like to see a master at making flowers, check her out here.  I, on the other hand, collect flowers - and punches that make flowers - and cartridges that cut flowers.  I just don't use flowers.  I always think of them as 'girly' and I've never been a girly girl.  My hubs said he married me because I like muck (muck:  something my husband always finds to walk in and then track into our house).  The first thing I did when we moved into this house was replace all the floors in rooms that opened to the outside with ceramic, all three - our door to the deck is in the dining room (ceramic floor), our front door opens to the foyer (ceramic floor) and our garage door opens into the kitchen (ceramic floor).  And I invested in a Swiffer.  Easy peasy, I just walk behind him and mop up.  He has a million good qualities so it would be stupid of me to chastise him about something so easily taken care of.

Back to the card.  I picked the designer paper first of all and went on a hunt for card stock for the base card.  This coral was all I could find.  I debated about using it, baby cards are traditionally pastels but in the end I stuck with it.  I like the way it turned out.
