How Swell

I recently found out that one of my really good friends is expecting her third child. And it is boy number three for their family. Julia is one of my favorite people and I am so happy for her and her husband. We used to work together and then they moved to Texas and a few months ago moved to Washington state, which is too far away from Tennessee for my liking!  For my congratulations card, I used the TAC set How Swell. There are two main images in this set and a couple of accessories and sayings. The image is colored with Prisma/Copic markers. The buttons are from making memories.It looks like I sewed on my card, doesn't it?  I didn't, the paper came with those cool zig zag stitches. I am not sure who makes this paper but I got it at Jo-Ann's. I hate not having a computer in my craft room anymore and I forget what things are sometimes by the time I make it upstairs and have a chance to sit down and start a blog post. Right now, the girls are downstairs in the craft room and I have been interrupted about forty seven times since I started this post! It's all good, I have fun crafting with them and they are having a blast. Have a great night!

That is a cute card. It is hard when friends move so far away, isn't it? Neat about it being their third boy, what an active household that will be!
