Happy New Baby-PPA237

January 25, 2015  

It is a sunny day in GA.  You can't ask for much more than that in January.  It is a little chilly, but so happy to see the sun shining!

We are off to the airport in Atl. in a few minutes to pick up our dear friends coming to visit from Chicago.  I know they will think it is warm here.  

I ran into my craft room this morning to make a card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  It was a fun sketch this week and I just had to play along.





I always need a baby card to send to new Grand parents or couples having new additions to their families, so I made a generic baby card.  You can never go wrong with a rubber duckie and yellow and blue.  It seems the trend is to not find out what the baby is now, so this card will work for either sex.  




I am on a quest to use things that I have been hoarding.  I love the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper and everyone that knows me, knows I adore polka dots!  
Night of Navy is the perfect accent color for Crushed Curry!



I wanted to leave the rubber duckie white to draw your eye to him.  I just added a little orange on his peak and wings to accent him.  Pearls make everything better!  I hope it doesn't look to girly this way!



If you have any questions on my card, please contact me at:Claire.

Leave a comment if you can!  I love to hear from you!

Have a SUPER SUNDAY!

Happy Stampin'
Claire

  6. I'm with you on the polka dots, Claire - pure love! And I love that you used a sweet rubber duckie and yellow so it works for either a boy or a girl. This is one the new parents will cherish!! I hope your weather stayed sunny for your friends!! Hugs, Darnell
