Full Moon

There was a lot of tension in the air today, everywhere I went. "Must be a full moon," I thought to myself and I wasn't far off!



I'm a retired teacher and I can testify that there really is something to full moon theories in terms of it affecting human behaviour.  I would face a classroom full of emotional students, acting out more than usual, and come home saying, "It must be a full moon!"  and somewhere within a 2 day window, I'd be right every time!  So if you're having a "full moon" kind of week, hopefully we can cheer you up a bit today.

One of my fellow demonstrators just had a her first baby, a little boy, so I made this card to give to her.
                                                                                                                                                                                              I used the Baby Boutique Stamp set for the first time and really had some fun with it.  I love the little boy colours and the diagonal ribbon behind the image panel.  The sentiment is from the One in a Million set and the sentiment on the inside says "a little word filled with a lot of HAPPINESS".


The colours I used were Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery, with a panel of Sahara Sand behind the images.  I added some texture with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.

This was my last project completed at our Papercrafter's Paradise Retreat last weekend.  There's nothing like a new baby to bring a smile to faces and little bit of new hope to the world!
