Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Baby Cards


Hallelujah ~ It’s finally Friday!   Phindy Phriday, actually.   (it’s been a LONG week of too many challenges, both in cardz and life!)    Our challenge this week is to make a Baby Card – my favorite type of card!    

Every time I see this image it brings back sooooooo many memories of when my kids were babies, and a current memory of my own daughters with their babies.    This is aptly named Contentment by Phindy, and available for immediate download at Phindy’s Place.



I finally took the time to look through one of the newest Basic Grey collections – Oliver,  for this card.  I had previously put it to the side after glancing through it, thinking it was for more masculine cardz.    Silly me!    Gosh, I love ALL the papers in this pad! 

Also, when I look at this image, I imagine this Mom quietly singing a lullaby while gently rocking her baby to sleep ~ so when I found this sentiment – I felt like I had won a jackpot!     It’s from a word art site that I have been going to alot lately (recommended by my friend, the awesome Jami Bova)  called Studio Girls Scrapbookgraphics.  They have the most awesome word art images I’ve yet to find!   Here’s a closeup view of this sentiment … I had to really reduce it for my card.


Tiny yawns, and sleepy sighs, nursery rhymes, and lullabies

If you love baby cardz as much as I do… hop right on over to the Phindy’s Place Challenge blog to see the ADORABLE cardz from Phindy’s amazing Design Team.    I hope you’ll be inspired to join us for this fun challenge!
