Good Day To All!! Yeah it is saturday and I don't have to work away from home today :) I actually slept in~~~whoa that doesn't happen too often :D

Made a card and a Double-sided Doorhanger Gift for a friend who is going to have her first baby soon.
 The card is an easel card made with SB Scalloped Octagon nesties. 

Front of card:  Used Bazzill's Tapioca CS--the white embossed layer is a gift from My Mom which came in the mail yesterday~~just had to go and create with it~ this is sooo preetttyyy I hate to cover it up at all ;)
The baby shoes stamp I bought at Michael's.  I stamped twice and layered the shoe in the foreground only.  Colored very litely with W-l and W-00 copics, then cut out with scallop oval nestie, slightly inked edges with TH scattered straw ink and finished with adding diamond glaze for shine.
Embellished a few of the embossed dots with yellow stickles and a few others with moonlight smooch.

Inside of card:  Upper white area left for personal message.  SU whimsical word sentiment stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink and punched out with SU oval punch~~outlined with yellow stickles. The teddy bear is Sizzix sizzlet--stuffed animal set.  Accented teddy with yellow stickles and moonlight smooch.  Used foam tape to pop up sentiment and teddy bear.

And Now For The Rest of The Gift:   A double sided DOORHANGER!!!!

Doorhanger was made using SB Labels Ten Nesties and Paper Temptress Shimmery paper from the Spring Package.  Taped ribbon to inside and glued the labels ten pieces together. 

One side:  is WOJ Willow Holding Baby--I didn't do pink or blue cuz we do not know what baby is yet :))))  Colored image with Copics--cut out with SB mega oval and layered on mega scallop oval.  Sentiment --Precious Little Baby--- is a Marcella By K embossed sticker.  Embellished with a few pearls~~ Wild Orchid flowers blinged with stardust stickles~~MM pin with added metal spacer and bead~ a few flower sprigs from my stash~and Swirls are my new Marianne createables that I bought at CHA --mmmmm good!!

Other Side:      So very very FUN!!!!  Used the Sizzix animal set sizzlets and layered with different color papers.  Added texture and depth with copics, souffle ink, and diamond glaze.  The FUN dotted DP is MM English Garden.  Taped teddy, lion and lamb onto dp then found some adorable kiddie charms and metal dots for flavor and Fun :D
The next few photos capture the shimmer of the gorgeous paper and shine of glitz and glaze on the images!!! BLING BLING BLING ***:D*****
