Special Delivery - SNBSC1




Special Delivery - Stretch N' Bubbles Sketch Challenge #1. For this challenge I decided to go for a baby card. My hub's 2nd cousin is expecting her first baby, a boy, Jaxon. So I made Ashley this sweet card. I made a special request of Alison; could she please draw me a bird with a baby. Well, I was so happy when I received an e-mail from Alison with a selection of 4 images to choose from. I immediately fell in love with "Baby On Board". I used my PaintShopPro program and colored her in, then resized her to fit on the postage stamp die from ProvoCraft. You can see from my photo that I used all of the embossing folders in the set in duplicates to make my card. I added the buttons to the first carriage so that it would make it a little more obvious this is a welcome baby card. I also wanted to keep this card CAS so I used barely banana and whisper white cardstock on the front. Inside I added some light turquoise to matte my sentiment. To finish off my card I added some ribbons and a little silver rattle charm (inside).
My internal sentiment says :
Babies are cuddles and memories to keep, (three a.m. feedings and too little sleep).
Babies are laughter and smiles to share, (and bottles, and booties, and bibs everywhere)!
Babies are sweet, and though they are small,
Babies fill up your heart - and your house - wall to wall.
Every time a baby is born, God smiles,
the angels dance, and a new star of hope lights up the skies.
Jaxon is here, and heaven is cradled in your arms.
Enjoy each and every once-in-a-lifetime moment!
Congratulations,
Ashley & Jeremy on your new baby!
