Baby Shower "Book Card"

Gee - blogger's not really been nice this pass day and a half ago for me, I know I've missed a lot of your recent postings and I'm still trying to get caught up with Bloglovin.  But their are so many of you that are not hooked up with it.   My apologizes if I haven't commented on your postings recently.  I don't know if I'm the only one feeling stressed out by this or what.  Uugggh!  
Anyhow I have another lengthy post to share, I 've made another "Book Card" for my nephew's wife (Shari) and this is for her baby shower coming up in  a month.  I'm early doing this but my mom is going over to Oahu in a couple of weeks and she will be house sitting and taking care of my Aunt for two weeks while my cousin and hubby go on a buying trip for their business that they have there.   So much for that - back to my book card.   The ecstatic parents know that they are having a boy and this makes it even more special for them.  I wanted to create something different instead of just making an ordinary card.   When I made my first "book card" I knew that I already was going to be making more  of them, it doesn't take that long to start one.   It's adding the details and trying to figure what goes where, LOL!   Let me know what you think !
Because it's a book card, I wanted to show you all the different angles of it from front to back.   Note:  my camera battery kept blinking on me - battery low so that's why some of the pics didn't stand out that clear.  Is this adorable or what, I just love Mo's Digital images this is one cute baby.  Ooh the fun part was paper piecing the umbrella~

Supplies used:
Digital image - Mo's Digital Image (Baby Shower)
papers - Doodle Bug ( Alphababies)
sentiments - My Creative Time, My Craft Spot
Dies - My Creative Time, Taylored Expression, Spellbinders
Cricut - Create a Critter. giraffe cut at 3"
embellies - pearls, rhinestones, ribbons, pop up foam dots, bakers twine, buttons,eyelet
embossing folder - Cuttlebug

I hope this got you inspired and I'm so grateful for my bloggy friend (Sharon) for being my inspiration on this project.    Hugs to you girlfriend!

Enjoy your crafty moments and be back soon~
