RRCB117 Sweet Baby

Hi everyone!  It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another Retro Rubber challenge, where we give our older stamps some love!  Today we have an easy theme:

Image may contain: text

We have a newcomer at our church, and she just happened to have a little girl on MY BIRTHDAY!! Woohoo!  We are taking her a meal today, so I wanted to make a card for her and so this challenge was perfect!  I used my much-neglected Little Cuties stamp set (2017), stamping the pieces on some Shimmery White cardstock and used Blends to color them in; I must say that the Blends "blend" very nicely on this cardstock, I'll be using it more!  So here we go:

I used the TGIF sketch for my starting point:

I used some Homespun Gingham from My Favorite Things for the background, adhering it to a Soft Seafoam card base. I cut two scalloped edges using the Be Mine die from some Crisp Cantaloupe (ret) cardstock for a border, and I used an older PTI set called Daily Design Sentiments for the banner, stamped in Mint Macaron.  I don't have any idea how old that set is, but I am guessing it is from around 2010.  I know I've had it for a long time!  I also stamped some random flowers from a 2015 Paper Pumpkin set as a background:

My final embellishment was to add some faceted dots in Mint Macaron and Grapefruit Grove!  I stamped this sentiment on the inside in Smoky Slate (God's Blessings, 2006):

I am looking forward to meeting this little sweetie!  I hope you'll play along with our Retro Rubber challenge...just remember that the stamps must be at least one year old and you must tell us the age!  Have fun!  

I babysat yesterday and Cassidy went into hairdresser mode, or perhaps I should say "hair decorator" mode.  She gave Jackie the rainbow hair treatment....thank goodness Jackie's mom is very chill about it!

I have to admit that it was cute!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is so you! God's Blessings is (was) one of the best sets SU put out, I think.

I'm not catching the shimmer, but it doesn't that this little cutie isn't showing herself just perfectly! Every little girl should have a rocking... sheep!! EWE are so sweet to welcome that little girl into your fold so beautifully, Leanne!

Such a pretty baby card, LeAnne and I like that it's good for boys or girls. I don't remember this set at all but it looks to have been a very useful one.

What a precious card! The rocking lamb is darling and I like the peach/mint color combo. The new mama is going to love this!
