New Baby Girl


Hello! The challenge this week on the Riley and Company challenge blog is "For the Girls". Perfect timing for me since one of my friends just had a baby girl and I needed to make a Congratulations card to send them. I always forget how tiny new little babies are! She is just precious and every one is doing great, Mom and Dad both say she is just so easy going. I used my brand new image Bundle of Joy. I made sure I ordered this stamp on the night of the release to make sure it would be here and I would have plenty of time to make the card and then get it to them soon after the baby arrived. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make them a card with this image.

Image is from Riley and Company, papers are DCWV, buttons are American Crafts, floss is DMC, and the chipboard heart is from my stash. Copics used: E31, E33, E35, antlers-E37, E29, blanket RV10, Rv11, RV14.

I am really making some progress using things I have on hand and not buying too much new stuff. The chipboard heart on this card has been in my stash forever! I mean, at least six or seven years. For some reason I buy lots of chipboard embellishments, but I seem to rarely use it. So look out, you might be seeing lots of it in the future!
