Welcome Baby

Somehow having our babies seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time.  I found the most adorable stamp/die set and matching paper at Archiver's yesterday!  It's Doodle Bug/Sizzix Baby Boy and the 6x6 pad is Sugar & Spice.  You all probably already know about it, and I've probably seen it on some of your cards too (and said, "awe!"), but seeing it up close and personal got me reaching for my wallet!  Too bad this wasn't around when I was putting those baby albums together. Thankfully, I can make cards with it to my hearts content!  The only problem is I have to cut into that sweet paper and some of it will be on the back side!


I needed to find a good sketch so I could get busy.  I found this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and I was good to go!



The twine and google eye were a Hobby Lobby brand and the buttons were from my little button collection.    I stamped the giraffe on the yellow DP and colored the details with a couple of YR Copics.  There is a die to cut him out, but I opted to fussy cut instead.  The frame was cut with Spellbinder dies.

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
