AYSI282 Hello Baby

Happy Friday, peeps!  Time for a new As You See It challenge and this is a fun one!  Look at this little cutie:

Not many babies being born in my family lately, but I did see Dana crocheting a blue baby blanket for a friend of hers the other day, so I am thinking I may give this to her!  Here we go:

My sketch is from Atlantic Hearts:

I used some "oldies but goodies" stamps for the main image:  A to Z, Teeny Tiny Wishes and Every Little Bit, colored with a light watercolor wash and mounted on some really old Cuttlebug tags.

I used some Papertrey gingham, a piece of random blue paper from my scrapbook stash, and a piece of retired Soft Sky paper was run through the Big Shot with the new Dots & Spots die...such a fun look and so easy!  I added a scalloped mat on the horizontal piece and tied it all up with some pale yellow embroidery floss!  I added a simple sentiment on the inside, and it's ready to go! 

I hope you'll play along with our sweet challenge for this week!  Sadly, this will be my final challenge with them, as I am stepping down from some of my design commitments!  But I will be checking them out and playing along for sure in the future!  Meanwhile, check out what the DT created and share yours as well over at the As You See It blog!  Thanks for popping in today!

A little creative activity...making loopy bracelets!  She has enough here to make hundreds, LOL!  This is my last day of watching her for the summer...she starts school (7th grade) on Monday!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, there are so many things to love about this darling baby card! The colors, critters, alphas, dots AND GINGHAM combine so sweetly - all tied together with your sweetest little yellow thread!
Don't we wish we could have our baby granddaughters back again for a second? They are growing way too quickly!

Adorable, LeAnne! I'm going to really miss these lovely creations! You always have such a knack for combining colour, pattern and embellishment in just the right proportions!

Michelle said...

Oh, LeAnne, this is the cutest ever. You picked all my favorite baby sets that I've hung on to, too! Baby Bundle has never been topped! The design is amazing, so many fun layers without being "too much" - you're a genius! We're going to miss you at the DT so much - all the best!
