B-A-B-Y Spells Baby!

Frances, aka StampOwl, is the CCEE challenge hostess this month and for this third week in May, she has challenged us to make a baby card.  Could it be because she's gonna be a first-time grandma this month?  I'm so excited for her and can't wait to hear when the baby is born. 



I wanted to do something different from past baby cards I've made and had this idea in my head to block the word Baby.  I cut my letters with my Cricut and then stamped them with either my Canvas or Polkadotted background stamps and adhered them with dimensionals to 2x2 dotted swiss embossed squares in Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Sage Shadow, and Bashful Blue.  I stamped images from Bundle of Joy on the background in the various coordinating colors and then sponged the edges of the cardstock in the same color I used for that particular letter.

We hope you'll find time to play along with us.  You can get all the details, as well as see the cards my friends made, on our CCEE blog.

Have a terrific day!
