Card of the Week...and Caity's Shower

First off, here's my card of the week for the CPS Sketch.  This if for a another baby shower I went to today.  I'm so practical...that any card I make for a sketch always has a purpose.  I can't bring myself to make a card, just for the heck of it.

I embossed the little duck which you can't really see in the picture.  I think it needs more, but since I needed the card this morning, I couldn't fuss on it anymore.

This is the CPS sketch that it was based upon.  You can kind of tell I was liberal with my interpretation, but it's close enough.

Next..I want to share some of our creative efforts on Caity's Baby Shower from last Saturday.

Here is a picture of one of the centerpieces.  We took four glass baby bottles and stuck them together with big sticky dots.  Then we tied them together with bright colored raffia. The final touch was the wooden numbers from a children's puzzle which were the table numbers (Caity's idea).  Then all we had to do was add water and some fresh daises.

We also found these adorable little jars on the Internet.  We filled them with different colored Jelly Bellies and set them at each place setting as a little gift for each of the guests.

 I think they turned out very cute and supported Caitlin's primary color theme.

Enjoy your week-end and thanks for visiting.
