Baby boy card

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good Sunday so far.  I’m sharing a card with you today that I made for a friend at work.  I love making baby cards and at the moment everyone seems to be having boys, which is a nice change.  Last year all I seemed to make was baby girl cards!

I used another DigiStamp Boutique image from the ‘simply baby collection’ and I paper-pieced the baby-gro and socks – aren’t they just adorable. 

I can enter this card into the following challenges:

Caardvarks challenge – sketch

The crazy challenge – cute and cuddly (it does have a teddy bear on it!)

Papertake challenge – shiny/sparkly and special

ABC challenge – U is for unused stash (I’ve had the ‘it’s a boy’ sticker for years)

Creative belli challenge – hole punches (used my MS border punch)

Cute card Thursday challenge – someone special

Pixie dust studio challenge – cut it out (I cut out the baby-gro and socks)

DU2DS challenge – anything goes

Stamp something challenge – celebrate something

Stamping for the weekend challenge – a card for a male

Bee crafty challenge – something new (new baby)

Sweet stampin’ challenge – get personal

Mami doodles challenge – monochromatic

Right I’d better go and get the boys some dinner, I know it’s late but they didn’t get out of bed until 1.00pm!!  Yes the joys of having teenage boys lol!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
