PP472 New Beginnings

Happy Sunday, peeps!  The Paper Players are back for 2020, and here's our first theme challenge of the year:

As I said in a previous post, two church families had babies born right around Christmas, so a baby card for one of the grandparents was perfect for the challenge!  I used Wildly Happy again; this time, I used the mama and baby elephants:

This pattern from the Mosaic Mood DSP seemed "jungle-ish", which was a good background for my watercolored pachyderms:

My sentiment, from Itty Bitty Greetings, was stamped in Mossy Meadow, then stamped again in Versamark and heat-embossed in clear embossing powder; I did that by using my Stamparatus; once I stamped in MM, I cleaned the stamp and re-stamped with Versamark. Then I sprinkled clear embossing powder on top and heated it up!  For fun, I diecut it with the new Stitched So Sweetly die:

I put everything on a Mossy Meadow card, and on a white mat on the inside, stamped these sentiments from Wildly Happy and Here's a Card:

Be sure to pop on over to the Paper Players blog so you can see what the DT created!  PLUS, we have three new guest designers and I know you'll want to see who they are and give them some support as well!  Meanwhile, we hope you'll play along too....hope to see you in the gallery!  Thanks for stopping by today!

The pups got a new bed for Christmas:

It seems that Cassidy likes it too!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

A Christmas baby seems such a gift doesn't it! I love your little mama and baby elephants and the paper makes a perfect background for them.

The pups look VERY comfy in their new bed - as does Cassidy - and what is it about dog beds that encourage the humans to sit in them too?!!
