Support & Ornament of Domestic Life

Here are a couple card I made using the CuteWorld boy kit from Addicted Scrappers. (The J is from last months kit Sunshine and Popsicles.)

This card I think I'll probably give to my nephew for his first birthday. I wanted the airplane rub-on to show up really well so I put it on a transparency and then cute it out and popped it up. I'm really happy with how this LO turned out. I hadn't scrapped in what seemed like forever and I was having major withdraws!!! I hand cut the shaped paper and then did some messy machine stitching around it. The photos were altered using PSE (I lowered the overall saturation and then increased the blue saturation to put the focus on the bear.)

Also be sure and check out the Girl Talk blog this week if you have a daughter. Even if you don't have a daughter I'm sure it will be benefitial! They're going to be talking about training your daughters to be competent homemakers. I'm excited about learning things to apply to my own life as well as practical ways to train my daughter to delight and flourish in the role God created her for. Today's post also really hit home with me. Make sure you check it out. What they talk about is what I pray for myself as well as for Kessa. I desire to be a support AND ornament of domestic life.
