Oh Baby!

Question: Do you know what's more fun than a sweet little baby to schmoozle?

Answer: Nothin'

It's true!! Babies are the best!! Which is why I chose "Oh Baby" as the theme for our challenge this week! That's right, I'm uber tickled to be your hostess this month at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! So...without further ado, let's get right down to business...

For this week's challenge, I chose this little doll baby by our very own, crazy talented Mo Manning available HERE at Mo's DP2 online store. Seriously...isn't she so dang cute? And let me tell ya, she is such fun to color! Actually, ALL of Mo's images are delightfully fun to color!!

One of our best friends, Max, is a new grampa to two sweet little granddaughters...Katie & Emily. So I decided to make a card for each of the girls that can be framed for their nursery. This is the first of two! I opted to stay away from the typical pastel pink...and went with one of my signature color combos...pink & green!! (Maybe # 2 will be done in pastel pinks! We'll see!) Here are a couple of side views...

As you can see, I used plenty of lace, frilly ribbon, pearls, and flowers. I also used MS lace punches and a cute little charm from my stash. The sentiment on the fromt is from LOTV...and the inside sentiment is from Stampendous. Here's a view of the inside...and a couple of close-ups...

And, of course, the "artsy" view...


So...now, it's time for you to feast your eyes on the gorgeous goodies created by my fellow Design Teamies at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog. Pretty impressive little masterpieces, huh? OK...so now, get out your fave Mo Manning image and make your own "Oh Baby" somethin' somethin' to enter into this week's Challenge #72 at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! Oh...and remember, one lucky challenge participant - chosen at random - will win one of Mo Manning's fabulous digi images! Yikes...how cool is that??

So...that's it for me darlin' friends...thanks ever so much for popping over for a visit...and for all of your sweet comments! Until next time....

This is so sweet! I also love to make babycards. I love the two colors you used. Most of the time we use only pink or blue.

This card is just stunning and I can't get over how real her hair looks. I keep thinking if I could touch it it would be that soft baby flyaway fluff. Be proud of this one lady. It's awesome!

Pat, I can't believe I finally made it here. Your cards are always so gorgeous and I felt bad I couldn't tell you. I love everything about this card, the coloring, colors, layout and the embellishments are perfect. Awesome Job!!!

Iulia said...

Hi, Pat! I've seen this card over a week ago and just marveled at how precious it was but then I was just browsing. Thought I should still post how high I think about your work here (in fact all of it:)).If this isn't the most beautiful baby card I've ever seen then I don't know what it is. Just perfect on all aspects: coloring, image, embellies, colors,sentiments. Love it all! I only can say like Sandy above:): Can I copy? Because if I were to make a perfect baby card I would try to come as near as I can to this:)
Hugs to you dear heart and thank you so much for always having a kind word for me:)
