Inky Impressions Challenge - Punches and Dies and a Bundle of JOY!! ;0)

Today is my week for the Inky Impressions Challenge, and the challenge this week is to have fun with your punches and dies! I also have something brand new to show off at the end of the post!! Lets just say Jolene wanted to be next in line and show off what she has been up to the last 11 months!

But first let me show off my Inky Impression card - then you can oooh and ahhh ok?

But warning.. I went just a bit nuts with LOTS of my dies! LOL
I felt like a kid with this one! It was lots of fun to create! I started off with Deputy Christopher I just love this little dude. He is so cute! I colored with my Copics, and then added some "weeds" from Rubberstamps Tapestry.

Then to the card - lets see... This is sort of an easel card, with an extra fold I guess? I used Tim Holtz City scape die, then my Papertrey Ink fence, and then a Spellbinders pocket watch - I added some scrap papers behind all the windows.. just needed some lights on you know? The fence I cut out of Core-dinations paper and sanded it. A fence needs to be worn and old right? Then the words... I found deep in my stash, scrabble words - they seemed perfect to me! This card just makes me smile :0)

Howdy :0) isn't he cute?

 And I almost forgot I wanted to show off the pocket watch close up. I die cut it out of the same paper as the fence... sanded, and then I topped it off with one of my vintage watch faces that I found in an antique shop a while back. It fit just right! And then two metal dots for added texture.


Now that is my card... maybe a little overboard with the dies and punches, but man was it fun! Make sure to pop over to the Inky Impressions Challenge and see all the wonderful projects by the other DT members!

OOPS almost forgot... I promised some ooohs and ahhhs didn't I?
Look what we woke up to yesterday morning ;0)
Jolene was showing signs Sunday that she might be wanting to go first - Monday afternoon yep... she was going to have her baby and soon... so we went on watch, and when we got out of bed she had just delivered him! A stunning solid black boy we named Jose! I'll get some cute and fuzzy photos of him for you, this was his first standing, just after being born. All legs and ears! Love that solid black face! He is a handsome guy isn't he?

Hope you enjoyed - thanks so much for popping in!
See you tomorrow!
HUGS and
