TMS396 for Baby Croghan

Hello, peeps!  Today's card is a wee bit's for my sweet friend Lesley, who is having a little girl next month, and there was a blog hop for her a couple of days ago, which I TOTALLY missed!  Not sure what happened, but it's still going on, so I jumped right in!

No automatic alt text available.


and here we go!  The gallery has lots of pink---LOTS of pink, so I decided to go a different route and use blue and yellow for my card....a little untraditional, but I thought these papers were sweet, especially paired with this little Easter chick that I repurposed for a baby card!

The papers are all from Fancy Pants' Park Bench line; the horizontal panel was stamped with a Papertrey gingham stamp, just to add a little interest.  The chick image is from Penny Black, and it was stamped with Stazon ink on watercolor paper, then watercolored.  I cut part of the image out and slipped it over a stitched die before running it through the Big Shot:

I added a little sentiment from Our Daily Bread and some big enamel dots to finish it off!  I hope Lesley and Corey like it!

Speaking of chicks, Cassidy had her face painted at a local restaurant yesterday:

Cute chick!  Have a blessed day!

I love this yellow and light aqua combo for a baby girl! The little chick with the spring bloom is perfect for Lesley's April baby too. This is darling and so is your granddaughter ;)

Hi LeAnne! Such a pretty card and those papers are lovely! I cannot believe how much Cassidy has grown! Wasn't she just born? Time flies when you're having fun! Thank you for participating in the hop and for your friendship over the years! xo
