Deepti's Popped Hop!

Many of you might know the lovely and oh-so-kind Deepti Malik of Dee's Art Utopia. Well good news! She's had a precious little boy - her very first child! The girls at STAMPlorations decided to have a surprise card "shower" for her. 

Since Dee is a watercolor wizard, I decided to go with that!

I actually got this stamp set when I was 14 years old. It was my very first stamp I ever owned. I walked into a scrapbooking store with my grandma, and for some reason I fell in love with this big ol' sentiment. My grandma, who lived on a fixed income, saw how much I loved it and bought it for me. I was soooo happy when she gave it to me. Such good memories and I'm glad they are being put into a card for Deepti.

Very clean and simple, but I think impactful and pretty! 

I'm going to link it up to:

AAA Cards - Love me like you do (I know this isn't the typical valentine that they will get, but I think it fits the theme just perfectly)



If you want to join in the celebration, you can link up your baby card for Dee over on the STAMPlorations blog!

  1. This is just perfect! I think it fits the theme since it was made for love of friendship, love of a memory and a love for a child. Great use of water colour with a touch of bling
