Welcome, Precious Little One!

Hi All,

Yay!!! We're celebrating the arrival of Baby Russ!!! Congratulations to the happy parents, Shery and David!

In true style, whilst Shery was giving, birth Becca hijacked the STAMPlorations Blog for this little celebration. The idea originally came from Sari, and Becca volunteered to organize a linky party. You can link up any baby themed cards on the STAMPlorations Blog to congratulate the happy parents.

To create my card I worked with the Balloons and Banners and the Heaven Sent sets and sponged regal rose though a large die cut star shape. I then used the small stars and stamped them inside the star using the same ink as I used for sponging. Next I framed my star with a doodled scalloped border to soften the look before stamping my sentiment in black Versafine ink. Next I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut the teddy bear, popped it on foam pads and attached it to my panel before stamping the star border n my base card, rounding corners and attaching my panel. I stamped and fuzzy cut my banners, stamped the bows into place, added my banners and finished off by adding some tiny stars and a touch of glitter glue.

I am entering my card at.

That's it from me for now, hope that you can join the linky party.
