{puns from the past}

When I saw this set in the catalog last time, I knew I had to have it. Sadly enough, I haven't stamped with it since I got it a few months ago! I decided to use it for this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

The base of this card is Baja Breeze, stamped with the canvas background. I stamped the buggies in Celery, Saffron and Baja, then punched out and matted on Basic Black. The DP is Making Memories, as is the ribbon.

I also used some burlap string from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts with one of my Kraft corduroy buttons. I stamped the sentiment on Amethyst and punched out with the wide oval punch.

This will go to my friend who is about 12 weeks pregnant. Doesn't know yet whether it's a boy or girl, of course, so I hope it's gender-neutral! :)

Thanks for looking!
