Oh Baby...You're Sweet Indeed!


I am a *smidge* late with my post for this week's
challenge over at....


Many of you know why...and I'll share that in
just a sec....but first, here is my design team offering
for this week's challenge which is to create a
Clean and Simple
card measuring 4 x 9.....


Our design team was really fortunate to have a set
of stamps from this week's sponsor


and I used 'Admit One'

I kept it VERY clean and simple using just
a spot of color from Echo Park Papers
'Candy Shoppe Dots & Stripes'

We'd love to have you play along, so make sure you
check out the design team gallery at CAS-ual Fridays because 
our Girl Fridays really nailed this one!!!


Now...here is my wonderful excuse for being tardy
with my posts today....


Our sweet Baby Finn was born yesterday at 4:44pm
This photo was taken within 20 minutes of his birth
and it's truly amazing the gift that he is....


Finn Paul is grandson number 4 for Paul and I
and it never gets old!

Thanks for all of the well-wishes along the way
and I appreciate being able to share even the
'tiniest'
of blessings with you : )


Today's Project Recipe:
Stamps: 'Admit One' by Lawn Fawn
Ink: 'Tuxedo Black' Memento
Copic: Sand E33
Designer Paper:  'Dots & Stripes' Candy Shoppe Collection
from Echo Park Papers
