Happy New Baby


Happy Wednesday.  I  have a very simple paper pieced baby card to share with you today.  I made it several weeks ago, but it had never made it to the old blog.  The scalloped card was from Archiver's.  I love how easy it is to dress it up with a bit of patterned paper on the inside. I'm entering this in the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  Hope you like it (and I'm sorry for the poor picture).

And if your up for a giggle today...check out Collin's ears. We were crafting last night and he came up with the gems on his ears.  He wanted to keep them on...I was a laughing, but was a little firm.  You don't leave the house with these on!

I see your son has inherited your ability to think outside the box when it comes to using crafting items in unique ways...I just had to giggle!

I really love the patterned paper behind those scallops! Adds that bit of contrasting interest that matches the paper-piecing. Simple and sweet.

LOL, oh, gem earrings was bound to happen with all the time he likes to spend in the studio :) He's very "beautiful" and I like that he kept them small and elegant to go with his outfit :) LOVE that scalloped paper! Gives the card a real softness :) Hey! Any updates on the studio? Tony and his son mounted my t.v. on the wall last night. My light tent is too big so I'll look into a smaller one soon :)

LOL, at first I thought Collin got his ears pierced. I'm glad it was just a crafty experiment. Teehee. And of course your card is darling!

Love this card, Lynn. The scalloped edges, that designer paper, and how you paper pieced the sailboat all add up to a perfect card.

What a great inspiration! I've got a few cute toy stamps that would really pop on a card if I paper pieced them. Thanks so much!
