SURPRISE LESLEY & COREY CROGHAN!
OMG! I Can't believe the day is finally here!
I've helped keep this secret for almost two months now!
So, we started getting the word out "secretly" to everyone we knew in cardmaking blog world and told them to "secretly" pass the word on. Lori really should get all of the credit, she set up everything, the FB Event page, the blog hop on her blog, Caffeinated Creativity. I just helped bounce initial ideas around of what/how to do it. Then, everyone mailed their cards, along with either $$ or some other gifts, to Lori who then boxed them all up and mailed to Lesley and Corey to open up this morning!
We need to also give a shout out to Nance Lempinen-Leedy too for her fabulous blog hop banner she created just for today! Thank you, Nance!
If you don't know Lesley O'Connor Croghan, she's another card making crafty friend online to many of us card makers. I met Lesley when she asked me to join her design team for The Challenge in 2014. She is one of the sweetest ladies I know even though we've never met in person since she resides in Canada and I in NC of the U.S., kind of a norm in our hobby world of creativity. Anyhow, she's a very talented crafter, creator and owner of several card challenges, along with her day job as a teacher, wife to Corey and fur mom to Penney and Rolley and now Mother-To-Be as well! Everyone who knows her is so thrilled for her and her husband, Corey, that they are expecting a baby girl in April! YAY!
Of course most of you know all of that so now here is my card that I made and sent to Lesley:
My card is a CASE of this baby card I found on Pinterest. I thought it was just so adorable. I chose to cut my stockings from felt and added some lace for socks and a couple sequins for buttons. I used dies from Stampin Up' (stocking die), Pretty Pink Posh (label die), Lil' Inker Designs (stitched rectangle and word die) and WPlus9 (Scallop rectangle frame).
