Little Girl

This will by my youngest son's first Father's Day.  His little Hayden is 5 months old, and so sweet!
Like her Dad, she was born calm and happy. 

A few weeks ago CAS-ology had a 'vintage' week....I searched around and found a lot of fabulous vintage images on digital sites and printed them off.  Life got busy and they have been on my craft table ever since...yesterday I colored, and today made this card for my son.  And wow!! CAS-ology this week is 'kids,' so it all works out.  Crafty life is good. :-)

My printer can't handle more than 65# card stock, so I backed the panel with a piece of craft foam before rounding and distressing edges and adhered it to a top folding card base 120#.  The image was colored with Prisma pencils.  I used a Close To My Heart stamp for the word bubble around a computer generated sentiment.  Acrylic stamps are wonderful - they an be stretched and reshaped on the block- which was needed to have this fit.  

As I was cropping the picture, I felt something was wrong....the voice of my CAS guru, Susan Raihala said, "Don't let little people or critters float in space!"  So I got my fine point journal pen and 'grounded' her.  Thanks, guru! 

A tiny puffy glitter heart and some twine were all embellishments needed.  The darling little girl stays the focus.  Can't wait to see her Sunday ♥
