Precious Baby Boy!

Happy Tuesday!

It's been raining like crazy the last couple of days, which is just so unusual here in AZ.  But I know that after it rains, the desert always looks so beautiful as the desert flowers bloom.  It's gorgeous!  So a little bit of rain here is always a good thing.
STAMPS:  Precious Baby Boy (Hero Arts), Scalloped Borders (Hero Arts), Mixed Messages (PTI), Victorian Diamond Background (Rubbernecker), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)

INK:  Versamark, Rich Cocoa (Memento)
PAPER:  Sno Cone CS (Poptone), So Saffron CS (SU), Vintage Cream CS (PTI), Hot Fudge CS (Poptone)
ACCESSORIES:  Vanilla Cream Embossing Powder (CHF), Brown Gingham Ribbon (Michael's), Diaper Pin Charm (Whiff of Joy), Circle Classic Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, 3-D Dots (EK Success), Frost Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts)

I'm back today to share my ABC Toys & Crafts sample.  Can I tell you how much I love Hero Arts stamps?  There are very few of their clear sets that I don't like, and my collection is forever growing.  I don't mind that, though, as I feel like most of their images are timeless.  This card features a Hero Arts clear set called Precious Baby Boy.  You all know that my first grandson is expected in May, right?!  Well, ever since we learned of this news, I've been excited to create baby boy cards.  I used Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21 - I feel like the colors are perfect for a baby boy card, don't you?  It also features another Hero Arts clear set that I've had for quite a while now, and hadn't used until now - it's called Scalloped Borders.  I'll be using that set over and over again for sure - loves me some scallops!!

This is a fabulous card, I think it should be in a magazine. Lady you have such an amazing way of making me NEED everything your little inky hands touch. Into my basket these sets shall go. Good timing because I am in the middle of doing a little ABC shopping..........
