MY SHERI CRAFTS CHALLENGE #68 - SPECIAL DELIVERY

Some of you may have previously read on MY SHERI CRAFTS blog that Peachy (one of our DT) is expecting a special delivery in the next coming weeks (a little boy) and their first child!  In honor of this momentous occasion, we are asking everyone to make a boy baby card to show her some love.  If anyone would like to send their card to her, I will be collecting them to forward on in a big bundle.  You can email me for details at myshericrafts@gmail.com.

I have a new addition as well....NO, it's not a new baby....it's my new Cricut Imagine!!  This was the perfect opportunity for me to try it out but it definitely was NOT easy?!? LOL
I used the Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge for this little cutie and then cut a couple extra layers and popped on top.  That's where all the trouble began................
I won't even go into the trouble I had setting it up and doing the update the Imagine required and the 45 minutes on hold with the helpdesk!!! UGH!!!

An-y-way.... I wanted to create a base mat for the front of my 5" x 6.5" card in a coordinating pattern but found out that it is nearly impossible to print a pattern on that size exactly.  So, I picked a scalloped image and flooded it with the yellow pattern you see and after printing it I discovered that it flooded all the little layers on top of it (hence the jumbled pattern and mismatching in the background).  The piece was too long to fit the front of my card and I didn't want to cut off the pretty scallops so I just folded in half and popped the onsie on top!  DH said he couldn't notice the mistake and after spending SEVERAL hours on this....I just called it done!  I kinda thought it just looked like an old baby quilt - LOL!  I most like will re-do it before sending to Peachy but she would probably get a chuckle out of it if I left it??  Here's the inside:
