A few weeks ago, a Facebook friend of mine began posting that something she has always wanted to do was finally going to happen. Soon after that, she began posting that she was going to be getting her new baby very soon. Visions of a young Chinese or Ethiopian baby started fluttering through my mind. "My new baby is coming Friday, she'd say. " I can't wait for the new baby to be here." she'd say. I started getting nervous for her. Did she have the nursery ready? Was she still going to get to be the free spirited gypsy she appeared to be? I mean...what? Was she gonna just carry her little Baby Zahara around in a papoose? Finally Friday came and for those few, like myself who had no idea what she was thinking, we anticipated what this baby was going to look like.
So, like I would do for any of my friends, I thought I would make her a Card of Congratulations. I had fun making this. Here is the play by play.
Using card stock, I free handed the basic shapes needed to make VW Bug. I used the pic above from her Face book page to see what the key details were.
Next, I flipped through mags to find colors and such that would help with the pic. I found this washer and dryer set. The red and metal would suit me just fine.
I cut it out and needed to find a place to put it.
So, after a fun naming contest on Facebook, I decided to add the new baby girl's name.
My name suggestion didn't win, but the winning name is cute and original.
Here is the finished product. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
