A Baby card for Alison


Here is a card I made for Alison Acton's little baby boy Sam. I made it on Friday and mailed it this morning, so I hope she will receive it soon. If you want to send a baby card to Alison (a wonderful designer for Whiff of Joy stamps) and have the chance to win some of the gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamps, check this post on Katharina's blog. You have time till 0ctober 23rd if you want to participate.

Here is a card I sent to Alison:

I used this cute Whiff of Joy image - Willow with baby, which I received from my blogging sister Anne . The sentiment stamp is Stampendous and the little heart stamp is SU. I stamped some little hearts on the inside, too and added a Whiff of Joy sentiment "Love grows happiness" but forgot to take the photo of it. The paper is from stash. The blue flower is from the Poppicrafts. The rose is from Bunny Zoes Crafts. The laces, ribbon, leaves and button are from stash.

Image was coloured with watercolours and I used my Sakura gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the heart and sentiment (which you can't really see in the photo).

Also, if you participate in this you get not one, but more than 10 chances to win, because all of the ladies from the Whiff of Joy design team will be giving away some Whiff of Joy stamps to one lucky winner. Check out their blogs:

PS. A book recommendation - If you're loooking for something interesting to read I must recommend the newest Tracy Chevalier book "Remarkable Creatures", which i'm reading right now. If you love books that have to do with history and history of art and are excellently written then you should read this one. Of course if you are a Chevalier fan (like me lol) and have read some of her previous books, then you know what I'm talkning about. I have read all five of her books and own and love them all. :)
