baby blessings

Morning everyone! How is your week going so far? I got a limeLIGHT Papercrafts order yesterday and I'm so excited! But, first...I must show you a super fun Baby Blessings card. Ready?

A co-worker of mine is having a baby boy at the end of this month so I thought I'd get a jump on making a card. I used the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set called Baby Blessings. Isn't this hippo just the cutest? The paper is from Imaginisce and I picked it up for a song back a couple of weeks ago. Ribbon and button is from PTI and all of it together...wonderful! Oh, and I have to tell you...the birds and flowers on this paper have flocking on them...so cute!

You know...one of the things I like the most about clear stamp sets is that you can take a stamp that is more block shaped and make it a banner shape...like I did with the sentiment here on this card. So versatile!

I have been asked to do the program for my PEO meeting on the 26th of this month and I'm so excited! I am going with a military theme...each of the members will make a card that we will give to the VFW here in town. They, in turn, will send it with or give it to military members that receive boxes or sweatsuits from our VFW. I think it is a wonderful cause. Now to figure out what I'm going to do! I'll let you know what I come up with for sure!

So...what are you working on? I'd love to see!

Adorable card. Love it.
Thanks for the card idea. My hubby is military and it is great to know that some people still appreciate the military and what they are doing.

How cute, Lorie! Must be the season for babies. I know several people that are due very soon. That's why I was making the Onesie cards. I haven't had a lot of time this week but I do have some things that I did over the weekend to post. Hopefully I'll get them up later today. Take care.
Hugs,
Donna

Such a sweet card! I love it. And I'm not working on anything. I worked my hiney off last week, and now I'm taking a break so I can indulge in a little reality tv obsession. :) More to come soon though!
