Baby Boy

I love when my friends ask me to make them cards.  It always puts a smile in my heart.  This past week I had a request for a baby boy card. I pulled out my Simple Stories-Awesome papers,  used this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge no.48 (it was a great sketch) and along with lots of MFT Die-namics...this card came to be. 

After almost NO stamping last week, due to my illness and now my parents in for the weekend, I was lucky to sneak in a little stamping therapy this afternoon. 

There is almost no stamping on this card, so I was really able to make those Die-namics shine.   The word "baby" was cut using the newest alphabet dies by MFT, BY THE LETTERS UPPERCASE.   I added them to a polka dotted impressed panel...polka dots always work great for baby cards. 

I pulled out an older flower Die-namics for my circle element, it's the largest flower from PERFECT PETAL DIE-NAMICS.  It's layered up with a CIRCLE STAX 2 and finished off with a sweet little NOTCHED TAG.  Isn't that Onesie just the cutest???!!!

I ♥ my burlap twine....just got more of this stuff from the Ribbon Carousel.  I used some to tie up by button.  

I even finished off the inside of my card.  More of the same designer papers and the perfect sentiment from the PI-Boy and Baby stamp set.  This is my FAVE sentiment from the set. 

That's all I've got today. Lucky me....I have a whole day of stamping planned once my parents hit the road tomorrow.  I'm healthy, revived and my mojo is ready to go! 

Have a great day!
