Babies are a Blessing

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  A wee bit late today...just haven't gotten into my summer stamping routine yet!  I needed a baby congratulations card, and the sketch from Atlantic Hearts worked great with the colors from Global Design Project:

I don't have many baby stamps but the retired Bonanza Buddies stamp set is one I usually go to when I need something along that line, so I pulled out the toucan and went to work!  So here we go:

I diecut three circles in the challenge colors using the Stylish Shapes dies, then added stars from Your Biggest Fan in matching inks.  I diecut the toucan and colored his beak in the challenge colors as well, then cut balloons from DSP in matching colors.  The sentiment is from Charming Sentiments. It all went on a Basic White card that had  been embossed with the Stitched with Whimsy die:

More Charming Sentiments, stamped in Tahitian Tide on the inside!

And here is little Cole, who made his appearance early last week, born at home, along with mommy Paige and daddy Drew!!!

I think he might look a wee bit like his cousin Sawyer!!  We'll have to see as he gets older!  Thanks for visiting today...enjoy it and be blessed!
