The Year Of Babies

Good Afternoon!  Man oh man, what another glorious day here on Cape Cod.....keep em' coming Mother Nature......pleaseandthankyou!

Today's card will be entered into the following Challenges:

StampTV Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, to make your own background, hosted by my dear friend Sharyn Polesel.

Simon Says Monday  I Ought To Use This More, I used enamel brads and pretty pleated ribbon.

My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge, which I rotated to the left.

Last year we had several weddings and this year there are several new babies on the way or already here.  How wonderful!!!

And here is my first baby card:

I used the small safety pin stamp from a Gina K Designs set, Mommy To Be Diva, to create my background.   This little set has such wonderful sentiments, Congratulations, Mommy To Be, and Look At You Glow, just perfect to help celebrate the new mommy!  Image colored with Copic Markers.  I added some random enamel brads, which I tend to save like "good China"  You know what I mean, right???  And of course I do hoard that fabulous ribbon....but why?  It always looks so lovely on a project.  I will TRY to use my "good China" more!  lol

I will have at least one more baby card for you this week.  But, I think there are more to be made, just have not gotten the word as yet.  :)

Hope you all have a HAPPY day!

Thanks for popping in, appreciate you doing so.



  1. Love the safety pin BG that you did here. How did you ever do the ribbon ruffle? That looks so sweet on this baby card. Yes, you should definitely use your good china and don't forget the crystal too.

  2. I love this card, Donna! Makes me want to buy that set, but most of my friends are having grandbabies, not far as I know! lol I really like the way you created the background with those neat safety pins, and the ribbon is the perfect touch.

  3. What a sweet card my friend!! Your safety pin background is awesome. Keep using the good stuff ;)

  4. This is fabulous! Love the stamped background, and your image is beautifully colored! That ribbon is definitely "good china", but so glad you used it here.
