Thanks for the Baby Gift!

Hi Chickies!

Happy Tuesday to you!!  I had such a wonderful weekend.  As you know, my grandson was born on Friday, and we got to spend quite a bit of time with him.  I know I’m prejudiced, but he is pretty much the cutest baby I’ve ever seen!  We also celebrated my daughter, Amy’s, graduation from college this weekend.  Plus, we had the added bonus of Mother’s Day in the mix, too!  I hope your weekend was as special as mine was.
Baby Boy Thanks
It’s ABC Toys & Crafts Tuesday at my blog today.  And this week, the Design Team is showcasing one of the many wonderful stamp lines that ABCT&C carries – My Cute Stamps!  You may recall that this line is one of my all time favorite stamp companies.  The images just make me smile, and the quality of the stamps is outstanding!!  I used two different My Cute Stamps sets – Little Forest Friends and Night Owl.  Both of these sets have darling images, and make adorable baby cards!!  I used my Square Classic and Scalloped Nestabilities to cut out the image panel, and my Copic Markers to color the owl’s face.  My daughter has received so many wonderful baby gifts, so I’m sure she’ll be able to put this card to use.

This card is also being submitted for several challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - (make a boy card)
Embellish Magazine - (color/dimension challenge)
Caardvarks – (sketch challenge)
CARDS Magazine Blog Challenge - (use product that’s at least a year old)

That’s it for me today.  I’m off to help my daughter with the baby today.  Just can’t get enough of that sweet little man.  Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!

Hi Karolyn and congratulations on your new arrival as well as Amy's graduation. Love your card. I used the same sketch and strangely enough also had a little owl on my card. Have a wonderful week.
