Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a really good weekend. I’ve just been relaxing with the family (and crafting a little too) so the time seems to have whizzed by as usual. I think we should have a two day working week and a 5 day weekend lol!
I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and this week we have a lovely theme for you of “monochrome blue”. It is such a great colour to work with, although I really don’t use blue enough. I decided to make a baby boy card as I don’t have any baby cards ‘in stock’ at the moment. Here is my card:
I have used a super cute image from Lili of the Valley called ‘baby blanket’ and I’m ashamed to say this is the first time I’ve inked this little cutie up. I love gingham papers and especially love them on baby cards, so I had to use my new Wild Rose Studio ‘gorgeous ginghams’ paper pad. The cardstock I’ve used is navy blue but it looks almost black in my pictures for some reason.
Our sponsor this week is Just Some Lines and the lucky winner will receive a $15.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
The rest of the design team have created wonderful cards for your inspiration, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
