FMS #37

I decided to carry along with the baby theme
this week at Freshly Made Sketches in honor of Rita taking a maternity leave
from the design team.  In doing so, it has came to my attention that I am severely lacking in the baby stamp category! Prior to joining the blogging world…I was mostly a scrapbooker.  I have completed my baby albums….so most of my baby stamps have been sent to new homes.  I found this little giraffe stamp in my animal stamps.  Fairly certain I picked him up at a garage sale for my little man to stamp with.  I think he makes a pretty cute baby card as well.  I suppose I have also enabled myself the next time I see a cute baby stamp set!  I had the same dilemma with baby sayings.  I ended up typing my saying in Word in the Scribble font and punching it out with a circle punch.  Here is the original sketch-


Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where

Design Tips-I stamped the giraffe on DSP and added coloring with Copic markers.  I then cut out and applied to my white oval.  I added the clouds to the white oval by sponging sky ink over the Wonky Scallop Border die.  I added faux stitching with the White Uni-ball pen.  Oval and scallop shapes were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
