Pals Blog Hop: Focus on the Sentiment

 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Sentiment as a focal point.” We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

   How's Life Friends?

   We're on baby watch this week for the first Grand! It brings back so many memories of waiting for my daughter to arrive and now it's her turn. A daughter. It's so exciting! I wanted to make a special card for the new parents and what better choice than this beautiful sentiment from Best Chapter? 

    It was easy to use a background from the host product Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, die cut a couple of layers and white emboss the sentiment on the black oval. I embossed the "welcome to parenthood" on matching Flirty Flamingo cardstock and raised everything up in layers with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

   I'm so grateful I have my art to keep my mind and my hands busy right now! Keep a good thought for a happy, healthy delivery and I'll let you know when she arrives;) 
   Be Well Friends!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 13th. Our theme will be Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects when participants showcase fun fold cards or 3D items that will be great for any occasion. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
