Stampin' B's Baby/Toddler Challenge

Today is Thursday, December 16. Already. How can that be? December is just flying by, and soon it will be time to forget to write "2011" on our checks.

But, yes, it IS another Thursday, and that means another challenge from the Stampin' B's DT. This week our challenge hostess is Brenda, and she is challenging us to make a baby or toddler card. A fun challenge!! Here's what I came up with: This is one of two Lili of the Valley stamps that I won way, waaaaaaaaaaaay back during the summer. I've been itching to get some ink on it for quite a while now, and this challenge was the perfect excuse to just do it. I stamped it on some of my best watercolor paper and had a mahvelous time watercolor painting with re-inkers. (It's been waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long since I last watercolored, so this was quite a treat.) It was fun dressing up the fur trim with some white Fun Flock and finishing this off simply with some Caribbean baker's twine from The Twinery.

This card will go to our little 15-month-old neighbor girl and her parents for Christmas.

I hope you've been inspired to play along with the Stampin' B's!! If you do make a card, post it on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

Thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss for today!

Emily, this is just precious and it reminds me of my little munchkins. Love the colors you used and that wonderful twine. I've never used the Fun Flock but it looks great and maybe that should be on my 'want it, need it, gotta have it' list. LOL
