Fresh From God - Simon Says Stamp, Sketch Saturday & Clear It Out Challenge

There's nothing on earth quite as sweet and lovely as a newborn baby.   With that said, I'd like to introduce you to Lily.  Not my Lily, but another precious little Lily.  She was born April 5, weighing in at 8 lbs. 10 oz.  Her sweet Mama is the daughter of a friend of mine, and she actually used to babysit my kids.  Boy, does that ever make me feel old.

I made a little card for her that I made into a photo holder so that her Mama can save it with a photo of this little sweetie.  Lily is precious - fresh from God.  Psalm 127:3

My card is based on Dawny's sketch at Simon Says Stamp Blog and I used My Mind's Eye Blush line.  The tiny little tag says Lily, but it's difficult to see.  Here is the card:

Here is the link to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the sketch I used: - Dawny's Sketch - Simon Says Stamp and Show/Anything Goes - Sketch Saturday Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  I almost forgot to link this one.  They have the most amazing challenges.  Check it out.

The second project I made is for Clear It Out Challenge Blog where they are having a REALLY cool and fun challenge.  It's a Karaoke Challenge, and you need to base your project on a song.  Since my project is a little treat bag, I used the song, "SWEET GIRL" by Fleetwood Mac.  This little paper bag project is perfect for tucking treats inside.  I used a Bugaboo Digital Stamp on my project because the sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps.  They have the cutest images, and I would LOVE to win.  You can check out this awesome challenge here: - Karaoke Challenge
My song - "Sweet Girl" by Fleetwood Mac.

I'm also entering this project here because I used a Bagaboo image:

I don't often win, but I still love to play and be inspired by the challenges out there.  I hope you will join in the fun on some of these challenges as well; including our weekly challenge at Word Art Wednesday where we would LOVE to see you.  Have a wonderful day.

God's blessings to you,
