Baby girls are such fun!!

Hello friends...in case you haven't heard, Richmond,VA had a White Christmas...as did much of the eastern part of the United States!! Now, it's not at all uncommon for my sister in Minnesota to have a White Christmas...but c'mon, we live in Richmond, VA...which is considered by some to be the SOUTH!! LOL! I must say, though, it's beautiful!!! I didn't even mind donning hat, gloves, parka, & boots to go out and shovel!!

I've taken a little time to read and relax this weekend...and even did a wee bit of crafting and online craft supply shopping!! A friend asked if I'd make a baby girl card for her to give to another friend...my response, "no problemo!!!" hehe! I love making little girl cards. For this one I chose to go a little non-traditional, though...instead of pink or pastels, I chose red!! The DPs are from DCWV - Nana's Nursery collection. I think they're just yummy, don't you?!! The image is from Belles 'n Whistles...I love her pouting mouth and chubby cheeks!!


And a close-up...


Here are a couple of side views...



And one of the inside.


The rest of my card recipe goes something like this:
Cardstock: Real Red (SU)
Ink: Real Red (SU) & Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Sentiment: LOTV
Punches: Doohickey Tag (Magnolia)and Martha Stewart border punch
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls: ZVA Creatives
Ribbon & charm: my stash
Copics: E0000, 000, 00, 21 (skin); R20 (cheeks); E99, 35, 33, 31, Y23 & 21 (hair); R29, 24, 22, 02, 01, 00 (outfit); W00, 0, 1 (shadows).

I've decided to enter this little darlin' into Challenge #144 at Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog HERE. Lisa has submitted a clever sketch...I took the liberty of making my card with circles rather than squares...but if you look closely, you'll see that I did, indeed, follow Lisa's sketch!! :-) So that's my story...I hope my friend likes this little card...and thank you all for stopping by for a visit. Have a safe and warm week. {{{hugs}}}....
