Sweet Baby

I have a third card with the same sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge...I blame it on the flag/pennant dies that I just got and the fact that this sketch uses TWO of them.  I really hadn't intended to make a third card, but yesterday I was adding cards to our church card sales racks and realized we needed baby cards.  Plus...CAS-ual Fridays has a color challenge - to use pink on a CAS card.  What was I to do but make a baby card...


Sweet Baby


This time I flipped the sketch.  I like it the way it is, but I didn't want that giraffe staring off of the page.


I also have a huge thank you and shout out to Doris at The Stamping Tower.  The cards that I was putting in the church card racks yesterday - they arrived in the mail this week from Doris!!!  She sent me her extra cards!!  I love the world of cardmaking.  Doris is in New Jersey, I'm in Colorado.  We've never met, but we have a bond.  Thank you so much, Doris, you made my day, week, month!!

Kim, this is the just the sweetest baby card! I really like that delicate frame and the clean design. I wouldn't have given thought to the giraffe staring off the page, but after I read that, it makes total sense and it really makes a big difference in the overall design.That's a great tip. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day today! :)

Kim, you never fail to give me inspiration with your lovely cards, this one included. Your church is blessed to have you for your gifts and for your love of Jesus.

Awh! Who wouldn't like this sweet pink giraffe and the lacy frame is the perfect, girly way to show it off.
