Baby Girl with Flowers

Hi, Friends.......

Whew....things have been busy around here! Lots of activities, scurrying around tending my garden and taking care of the produce, and our granddaughter has been here several times, including overnight, too. 

No blogging has happened, but I do have several cards in queue to catch up with. I am also getting ready for the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop coming up October 21-26 right here on my blog. It's our 5th Hop and will be so much fun!!!

I have been in baby card mode because of that 3 Baby Sprinkle at church recently....so while my supplies were still out I made a few more to keep on hand. I had this scrap of Baby Girl paper in my box that I wanted to use, but it needed something added. I simply dressed it up with a bunch of pretty daisies layered with a few pink flowers that my crafty pal, Karen Ladd, sent me a long time ago. THANKS, Karen!! (I wonder if she even remembers these!! lol...) I love the delicate pastels......so sweet. Awwwww.......

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Petaloo flowers
Pink flowers from Karen Ladd
Scrap of ancient DCWV paper
Core'dinations/Darice Cardstock

Hope you like this super-easy but pretty card. Adding a mass of flowers can be a great way to use some of those odd pieces of patterned paper in your stash for quick cards!

  8. Sweet baby card design with the flowers.

  9. Wow!! I can't believe this was a scrap of DCWV paper. It made the perfect baby girl card base...and adding that burst of flowers gives it a whole new look. How in the world do you remember where you got those flowers (and any of your embellishments) anyway? I try to label things that I receive from crafty pals but most gets tucked away in my stash and their origins remain a mystery. Not sure if I remember those exact flowers, but I know I always think of pink when I think of you! They look wonderful on this card with the cute white daisies so I'm glad they ended up at your house!

  10. What a pretty card for a baby girl Janis. Sometimes embellishments can sit about in the craft room for ages until the exact right moment comes up! Felt very sorry for that poor kitty - but I'm assuming a human with more experience than that little girl extricated them both from disaster!

  11. Such a beautiful card. Thank you for blessing us with your entry to our challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with God's Word in 1 John 3:1 that says, "See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him." Have a blessing filled day.
