Using my stamps!!! Krafting Kimmie style

Goodevening everyone!!  I had promised myself that I would start using my stamps more... well tonight I made up for 3 weeks worth of this promise because I used 3 of my Krafting Kimmie Stamps!

I had to prepare a card for my SIL's nanny.  She takes excellent care of my twin niece and nephew.  So my SIL wanted something to give her for mother's day since she's their surrogate mom in a way.  And I've seen her with them... my world this woman is my idol.  Not only is she super nice and talented but she's also gorgeous.  Have you ever seen Sex and the City movie where Charlotte has a wonderful nanny?  Well this is just like that except that she is married and has a cute adorable little girl.

So... what do you make for this type of lady?!?  I had to think about it long and hard and well work all night on this card!  And here it is!  I made an accordeon style card.

This is the closed out look:
Please don't forget to click the read more for the rest of the post... some people don't see it...

For this card I used paper that I had in my stash.  It was easier because of the size!  It's a 6X4 card.  I used my Les papillions and my fancy tag 2 from Spellbinder.  I used some ribbon and bling from my stash as well. All the stamped images were colored using my copics.

Here's the opened up version
And here's a closer look at the 2nd panel  I added some stickles to it for the added shine to the bubbles

Here's the 3rd panel
I really like the different sentiments for relaxing and enjoying life!

Here's the backside of the card because I needed some place for the writting... I used an MS punch on the corners!  Lisa would be proud lol
Pretty cute right?!?  I really really really hope that my SIL likes it and that it meets her expectations.

I was inspired by this awesome picture and those colors:
