Can you believe it's that time again? Another week gone by and we're at Blogger's Challenge #31. This week the challenge for everyone was to create a card using the "welcome baby" card layout on page 141 of the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer 2008 catalog. It's a very simple layout...you might have figured out by now that I don't really do 'simple'. My cards seem to take on a life of their own and then I must enforce the 'no mo' rule. (That's explained in another of my posts too far back for me to look for...it is as it sounds.)
This didn't necessarily have to be a baby card but I did need one and it hit me that I had yet to use this adorable Peek-A-Boo Baby set from Stampendous. I'm not even sure that I knew anyone who was having a baby when I bought this. All I know is that it was the cutest set that I had seen in a long time. How could I resist?! He's soooooo cute!! (I think it looks like a 'he' but he could be a 'she' too.)
What doesn't really show up in the photo is that after I stamped the 'family' words in Cloud White VersaMagic chalk ink, I then over-stamped the word 'wonderful' in Wheat VersaMagic chalk ink. It's a subtle detail that's much better in person.
