New baby card

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Wanda who is a new follower this week.

Well I had a really busy day yesterday with a retirement party in the afternoon and friends round for dinner in the evening so I didn't have time to get in early with the LIM challenge, or follow the Papertrey Ink Stamp a faire day, but I have applied my bottom to the seat this morning and want to do some catch up. The on line Stretch your stamps class ends tomorrow and I still have a lot of homework to do so I decided to combine a couple of things to come up with this card. Day 3 of the class was on using alphabet stamps and Day 5 was using sentiment stamps more creatively. The LIM challenge this week is to use sewing on a card and I tried to make my baby card cover all of this.


I used alphabet stamps for the word 'baby', and selectively stamped one word from a longer sentiment for the 'little' and used 'sweet' from another set. I quite like this little grouping and will try to do more of this. I added a strip of patterned card to bottom of the card with my sewing machine.



Well I'm off to look at the PTI site now for all that I missed yesterday, and have a browse of all the wonderful entries you find on the LIM blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
