Hello Baby...

Good Saturday morning, and happy weekend to you!  Today, I'm sharing my Hello Baby card with you.  I made this card for the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge, and the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge,  where we are challenged to make a card for a new baby, or anything new.  I'm not sure I'm even needing a baby boy card, but every time I think of a baby card, I think of this adorable PK-245 Baby Monkey stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I just love coloring him, or her, as the case may be, and that pacifier in the mouth just cracks me up!! 


I watercolored this little fella, and kept the blingies to a minimum (for me).  The swirls were cut with my Cricut using the Wild Card cartridge, and the image and scalloped layer were done with my Nestabilities dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It's such a pleasure to have you, and I wish for you a glorious day and weekend full of family, friends, and fun!  God Bless!!

Love ya,
