Blogger's Challenge #62 Labor Day


What a cute idea Lisa had for this week. Since it is "Labor" day she said we could make a patriotic card or a baby card. I truly am a patriotic person but I really don't have much need for those types of card in my everyday card sending (who am I kidding I don't send card, I horde them!) so I decided to go with the baby theme. And I am on a roll trying to use some stamps that have not been touched in years -- since I am still waiting on my brand new SU stamps.





I love the adorable little dragons in this retired set -- Darling Dragons. I matched it up with the new in colors and the Anni VERVE sary sketch #8. I so love bright cards like this they make me smile-hope it makes you smile too.


Stamps: Darling Dragons, Nursery necessities
Paper: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White with Bella Rose dp
Ink: Brown Stazon, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: colored pencils, gamsol, stumps, nestabilities, cuttlebug embossing folders, scallop edge punch, small circle punch, word window punch, ribbon, buttons
