Baby...

Hello!
Sorry for being MIA this week - lightning took out a port in my computer, and I'm trying to get it repaired. Have relied fully on my IPad, and as you know, it's really hard to do a full blog post from there!
I've been wanting to do the challenges at The Paper Loft (they have such delicious papers!) for quite some time, and I think I'm sliding in just in time! The challenge ends tomorrow.  It is sketch challenge PLS17 - you can see the sketch below.  I needed a baby card for a little boy baby, and found this adorable stamp while shopping with friends the other day.  Couldn't wait to paper piece it!  Be sure to check out the beautiful items at The Paper Loft!!! You'll be glad you did :)
Here's my card:

Supplies: The Paper Loft Everyday Life & In the Zone, Woodware Baby Patch Elephant...of course, I used my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Rulers to get the nice mat behind the elephant! See my sidebar for details!

And here is the sketch:

Hope that you are all doing well this week. It's a pretty day here in Missouri, 
at least until more storms come zipping through!

Thanks for dropping by,
Patti J.

Oh my this is absolutely too cute - I knew you already had an idea in your head when you picked that darling elephant up - he just might have to come and play at my house for a day or two!!! Love the papers too.

Patti, this is so darling! My work laptop hard drive went kaput and I'm so lost without it. Get it back next week and then I'll have tons of work to do. So I feel your pain.

Hi! You have a cute elephant there. My sis would like it as she collects them! I have to send her a linkie! Sorry to hear about your computer. Does your library have computers with internet service you can use? I used to do that and took a flash drive with me to keep my photos and other documents on. Sent you an email, but then I didn't know your computer is on the frizz. Sorry! It's already hot here! Son said something abt. the air-conditioner. . .

Shirley said...

Wow, what a really adorable boy baby card! That is perfect and what a keeper for a baby book too! They still do baby books don't they? :-)
