Hugs! Gotta run.

I opted for orange and blue, inspired by the goldfish and water in the stamp. The stamp, from Playful Pals, is colored with Copic markers. I also added just a bit of clear glitter with a Spica pen on the pale blue part of the fish bowl. And it's hard to see, but I added a few white air bubbles coming up from the fish's mouth. I mimicked that with the Pebbles' candy dots in the lower left corner, and repeated the idea again with the white dots across the top. Those were done with a white gel pen and Stampin' Up's paper piercing template. Papers are Pink Paislee, Georgia Pacific white, tangerine tango and pacific blue SU.
FYI- Lizzie Anne is having a Try-a-Mix special this weekend only. So if you've been wanting to see for yourself what a great deal this program is, you can purchase Dream Big (my fave) or It's Good to be Queen for the outstanding club member price of just $25. Check out the details here.

Lots of "pretty" elements, starting with this swirly, old fashioned sentiment from Vintage Verses. I used some very pale pink Copic markers to highlight the clock, then edged the die cut with a couple of brown inks. More "pretty" came from the plethora of mixed Prima flowers, scalloped edges, shiny swirls and polka dot embossed green strip.

The baby shower is this weekend, and I really want the nursery done before then. So this week I'll be touching up paint and assembling the crib and night stand. Hopefully the dresser (pre-assembled, yay!) will arrive soon. It's on back order, so it may not be here 'til shortly after the shower. I can't wait to add all the cute baby things now! I'll have pictures soon.

I stamped the flower from Hello Friend three times and cut them into different sized pieces for layering, so my flower has lots of dimension. I also lined the petals and leaves with a glitter pen, very pretty in real life.
