A Child So Lovely


What a sweet sentiment and one that is
very real in our family right now....
well, my daughter's family.
As you know she has a newborn son
and two school-age sons as well, so it is
quite the reality for her to like this quote.

{Here is her oldest CJ with the Baby Finn}

So when it was time to use the stamps
over at The Play Date Cafe
from our sponsor this week, it was perfect.

Paper Makeup Stamps provided our design team
with really beautiful images and mine was a
lovely match with this color story.

I think this card is pretty straight-forward.
I do love the gingham paper from A Muse Studio
and it was the perfect match.

As I said, Paper Makeup Stamps is this
week's sponsor and it was a joy to play
with their red rubber images.

I am also really happy to share that
Stacy Rodriguez is officially joining
us this week as our newest
Private Blend Designer.
She specializes in layouts & mini books
that will blow you away.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you will leave a note to let me
know you came by.
I really do love hearing from you all!

Oh Julie, I am so glad we are new facebook friends. I am just loving the creations I am seeing from you! Plus tomorrow is my free day and it will be the first time I get to sit down and play along with the PDCC and it features my fave colour purple- score! You did a great job combining this sentiment with a sweet and simple card. Just so pretty :)
