Baby, Baby for Refreshed PPA150!

The Spring Catalog is Live!

(What did they use to make that?)

Thanks for visiting today to see the card I made for the first Pals Paper Arts Challenge of 2013. And to peek at the Spring Catalog, if you don't have one in your hands already! I hope you will make a New Year's Resolution to join us often and play along!

These are lovely colors for a Valentine or in this case a Baby Card. I have baby on the brain, since my daughter is having her first baby in June! Yay! We don't know if we are going to have a granddaughter or a grandson, but we don't care which!

I have used some new products, available beginning today in the new Spring Catalog! I hope you enjoy seeing these and will leave your comments below. My background is my absolutely new favorite Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I'm trying not to use it on every card I make, but it's just such a nice texture! You can use it to emboss small prints and then snip out the hexagons to accent some or all of the honeycomb! I like it just plain, too!

I decided this cute little bug from *new* Little Additions stamp set needed to be Melon Mambo instead of red, and her "spots" needed to be pearls! I colored my Basic Pearls using a Black Sharpie. They stay nice and shiny, too!

These GORGEOUS ribbons are *new* today, in the Spring Catalog. They feel wonderful! The 7/16" ribbon here is Striped Organdy in Melon Mambo. It also comes in Marina Mist and Old Olive.

The 1-1/4" Two Tone Ribbon used here is Basic Gray/Basic Black. It also comes in Pink Pirouette/Rose Red.
