Oh Baby

This is the last week for this month's challenges - all entries for any of the March challenges must be posted by March 26th at 10:00 pm EST to be eligible for our 2 great prizes from sponsors Lori Brown and Angela Parchey.

This week our theme is BABIES. We want to see your cards and gift items that are created with a new baby in mind. So let's see what the Design Team created for this theme, starting with a special guest this week, our sponsor, Lori Brown:

So sweet! Thanks for playing with us Lori!









Oh baby - these gals all rocked the challenge! But we want to see what you create for a sweet teeny tiny baby! Make a card or other gift item and post to your blog or other public online gallery. Then leave a link to your post - be sure to link to the exact blog page of the post - not your blog as a whole - so we can find your artwork.

Remember there are prizes up for grabs and a Top Ten to fill!

I know mine says Easter but I was thinking I could just change the tag and use the box for a baby gift. Love the stamp of the month and finding alternative uses...From Easter to Baby!

Laurie said...

Design Team, way to ROCK the Challenge! You guys have done a great job this week! Thanks for all the inspiration and fabulous ideas!

By the way, I would love to comment on Mary's cute little "ruffled" card, reminds me so much of adorable little ruffled baby bums ♥ but it doesn't work ... when I click on Mary it says there's a problem ?? All the others work. So Mary, if you read this, Your card is incredible! So cute and such a clever idea! Thank you for sharing!

I'm not sure if I can enter twice, but this is such a baby thing and I thought the readers would enjoy it.

Nicole said...

I didn't think I was going to be able to come up with something for this - but I managed to! Thanks!

Sheila H said...

This was hard for me. I'm actually not very pleased with my card, but entered anyway. Oh, well...

Sarah "Walms" said...

Babies are so sweet and truly deserve to be celebrated. Loved this challenge

Since I am still celebrating becoming a new Grandparent to a wonderful Baby Boy and new to Blogging, I hope you enjoy the Photo Mailers. (had a couple of mishaps on posting, sorry about that.)
The Mailers are so easy to make and these can be made for many different occasions as wonderful gifts. This will be my first attempt at Blog Hopping. I have enjoyed all the pictures so adorable and cute.
