Back among the living…..well, sort of.

Thank you all for your sweet get well wishes!  My readers are the BEST!!!!  I came home from my Stampin’ Up Founder’s Circle with a nasty head cold which quickly migrated south down into my chest.  No fun, that’s for sure.  I would much rather be filming great ideas for you guys BUT alas, it was not meant to be this week.  

Well, through my Sudafed foggy head, I managed to create a baby shower gift for a good friend of the family.  Her baby shower is tomorrow and I wanted to create something really special for her.  Luckily I had an IKEA 9″ x 9″ frame left over from the many trips to IKEA for the stamp room makeover.  Here’s what I came up with.  Pardon me as I beam with pride.  

Baby Name Frame by Connie Stewart - What do you think?  I love the Smoky Slate with the Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride.  I used A LOT of Stampin’ Up products on this project so I won’t even begin to make a supply list.  This was one of those “look around the room and use a little bit of everything” kind of projects.

Designer Paper, Glimmer Paper, Embossing Folders, Punches, Washi Tape, I used it all!

Here are some close-up’s….
Baby Name Frame by Connie Stewart -
Baby Name Frame by Connie Stewart - Baby Name Frame by Connie Stewart - Baby Name Frame by Connie Stewart - It sure was fun to do a little creating with nothing in particular in mind…. just paper crafting!  I hope Katie likes it and that it goes with Harper’s new nursery.

As for me, it’s back to the couch with some OJ and the remote (Lord help me, daytime television is just horrible).

I’m sure I will be totally over this come Monday so Simply Simple Stamping will be back to stamping then!  Have a great weekend my friends!

    You put a lot of Sudafed into that project I can see. It is such a lovely looking job. I tend to do things better when I am not well. Now I am feeling better I can see there will not be much done for my stall. Only joking. I love this one a lot and the colour combination is one I love.

    Precious, just precious! Even sick your creativity and talent amaze me!!:). My cousin in NC, is due with her first child in January and her name is Harper! I must try and figure out how to send this to her!!! We do not have an IKEA store here, but I must find out the closest one, I seriously doubt that I could come near anything like this, but I could try! I am also doing a make over of my stampin space but have no organizational not decorating skills, so am hoping some of my friends will help me with that!!

    Get well soon and God’s riches blessings for a speedy recovery!
    Thanks for sharing:)

    Take care of yourself, even though you are feeling a little better. It will take some time to fully recover! And that baby gift project! It is sooooo beautiful! Makes me want to tap the Sudafed! Thanks for the effort on our behalf, but we are big girls and can wait until you are at full ConniePower! XX Sandy
