Baby Boy Card


Happy Thursday, peeps!  When I saw the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge yesterday, I was disappointed, because I didn't really need any baby cards:

SIP Theme 45 800

Then a notice popped up in my inbox that one of our church families just had a baby!  Yippee!  So I went to work:


I used a retired Project Life card to cut my Pear Pizzazz panel, using a Chalk Talk die; the banner is some retired DSP, and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.  The stamped stars are from Holly Jolly Greetings, and the star diecuts are from Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite Things. I used the colors from ColourQ and the sketch from Paper Craft Crew:

                 Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 192

Now my only problem is that when I double-checked my email, the couple had a GIRL....duh!  So you'll have to come back tomorrow to see that card, LOL!


Meanwhile, check out my be-spectacled girls....yep, Cassidy got glasses yesterday!  


Enjoy your day!

LeAnne, I couldn't believe when I got to the bottom of your post and saw the beautiful picture of your girls with Cassidy in her new glasses. Ironically, my granddaughter who is 6 just got glasses! LOVE watching Cassidy grow. What a special blessing our granddaughters are. :-) Your card is really cute too!

Love your bold collage using our colors this week. It is fantastic. And, as a mom of a glasses sporting gal, I always love to see beautiful girls in glasses.

Ooh, nice take on that sketch! And I love the way you've mixed up these colors with paper, ink, and some cool stars! Woo hoo to Cassiday and her new specs! She looks even more grown-up with them!

Hi LeAnne, this is a fun interpretation of our sketch this week. I love the mixture of colors and that it's not a "traditional" baby card. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew this week! xo Crystal
