Celebrate Baby...New Life

I'm so happy you've stopped by today.  This is one of those days that I'm posting something just for fun.  No Design Team assignments, no time limits, and no particular reason for creating.....just got a burst of energy late last night and decided to pull out these Simple Stories Oh Baby supplies I picked up last time I was my favorite scrapbook store in the world, The Pine City Scrapbooking Co.  I've only made a couple cards with this line so far, and I'm already thinking that I want to get a bit more of it.  You can find some of this sweet line at Simon Says Stamp.  Isn't it cute?
I used an ivory base and attached some of the sweet patterned papers from this line.  I also added a white doily, some ephemera and stickers from the Oh Baby line, and a long length of Teal Baker's Twine.  The stamped sentiment (Celebrate Baby) is from a set by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps that's called Farmhouse All Occasions Greetings.  I think the only other things I didn't mention yet are cute little pearl embellishments and the extra little strips of various patterned papers that I inked and cut into flag/banner strips and added with a miniature rusty paper clip.  You know me....I never know when to stop.
I just love everything about this sweet Oh Baby line, and I'm so glad I grabbed it when I did.  I'm so glad that I can still order more of it cuz I'd sure be bummed if I couldn't get a bit more.  The patterned papers are so sweet, so I know I'll be getting at least the 6x6 paper pad...and perhaps a few other goodies.  It's just too cute!

Thanks again for visiting.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Simon Says:  Party Time - This baby card is for my friend's new granddaughter, and her Baby Shower is the perfect PARTY occasion for me to give her it to her.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says: Something New - This card is for a brand new sweet baby.  I also used some new (new to me anyway) supplies to create this card for the new baby.

Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Patterned Paper Triple Time - I actually used three or four different patterned papers.  I have the one that covers most of my card base, and then a few others that I cut into little flag/banner strips and inked to attach.

Crafty Hazelnut's January Patterned Paper Challenge - I love using patterned papers, as you can see from my card.  Thanks for another fun challenge, Hazel.  I always enjoy playing along.
