PP514 Baby Boy Sketch

 Hi peeps!  Sunday means a new Paper Players challenge with Jaydee as our hostess with a fabulous sketch---a sketch with THREEs!!!


I do love things with threes!!!  Recently I attended a "Meet and Greet" for a young couple who adopted a baby boy just as the Covid pandemic started.  No baby shower, no cuddling the newborn, seeing him in the nursery at church; just quarantining with the three of them as they waited things out!  So they finally felt comfortable enough to have friends and family to an outdoor get-together and it was delightful!  He's six months old now and just such a cutie!  Anyway, this card was to "re-celebrate" this special event:


Someone recently gave me a huge 12x12 pad of baby-themed DSP, so I pulled out this fun print, added some matching cardstocks and went to work.  Another page had the blue elements; I punched them out, diecut a border for the main one and stamped a sentiment from the retired A Dozen Thoughts:


I added a Marina Mist ribbon and it was done!  I love this sketch and you might just see it again sometime soon!  

What will you create with this sketch?  It's coming up to the busiest card-making season of the year, so this may be a great way to make some quick, easy cards using our awesome sketch!  Check out what the Design Team did with it as well as the Paper Players blog!  See you there!

Good old Highlights magazine provides fun activities while waiting for dinner!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

What cute paper! So glad y'all were able to re-celebrate. I still love Highlights too. Do you remember Jack & Jill magazine? I'm off to The Paper Players. I've already seen Ann's and Mary's so I need to check out the rest and then get busy playing. Have a blessed day.
