Cards, Diaper Bundle and Blog Hop This Weekend!!

Hey everyone, Nikki here.  I hope it's been a great week for you all.  I've been MIA for the last couple of days.  My grandmother had a stroke over the weekend so it's been kinda crazy.  She's doing much better and hopefully she can get out of the hospital soon.  Trying to explain to an 80 year old woman that she is not invincible is not easy.  I managed to make a card for her and wanted to share.  Enjoy!

Paper is from DCWV Linen Closet
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap
Marvy Matchables LePlumeII Markers
Digi Stamp is Pure Innocence and I got it from an Esty store (digistampcharacters is the name on Etsy).  The image can also be found at My Favorite Things as a clear mini stamp set.
Boarder punch is from EK Success
Sakura Glaze
Bling came from Recollections

You ever get that feeling that you have no crafting mojo?  I got that a couple of days ago and decided to step back for a few days to do some much needed relaxing and visiting my grandmother.  I'm recharged and excited for more of my creative journey. 

My mom has a baby shower over the weekend and needed some things done.  I make diaper and towel cakes on the side so I was happy to mix it up a bit.

Recipe for card:
Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge
Pattern Paper came from DCWV Nursery Baby Girl
Solid Paper and Bling came from Recollections
Ribbon came from Michaels
Brads came from a RAK (I just love RAKs)
Cotton Candy Stickles
Marvy Matchables LePlumeII Markers
Sakura Glaze

Bundle Contents:
Receiving Blanket
Everything is newborn so in essence you can take it to the hospital as a gift for the new arrival.

I'm still getting into the whole digital aspect of crafting.  I'm getting ready to start my copic marker collection and I can't wait.  For now I've been using Marvy Matchables LePlumeII Markers and I think they color very nicely.  I made a thank you card with a digi that I had gotten a bit ago.

Digi stamp came from All That Scraps in the Kiki La Rue section.
Pattern paper came from DCWV Citrus and the solid paper came from the Citrus coordinating pack
Marvy Matchables LePlumeII Markers
Boarder punch came from EK Success
Sentiment came from Stampin Up Teeny Tinies (I had bought them off of craigslist so I'm not sure if they still have the set)
Tsukineko Dew Drop Memento Dye Ink in Bahama Blue
Bling came from Recollections
Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust

I also wanted to let everyone that I will be taking part in a blog hop over the weekend hosted by Ellen at Card Monkey.  Blog candy will be offered so stop by over the weekend and hop with some talented ladies for inspiring Valentines' ideas.

 I hope everyone enjoys their Friday and I hope you check back over the weekend for the Valentine's Day Card Blog Hop.
