The Joy's of "New" Motherhood

Wow, I am so far past the NEW MOM stage of parenting that when I think of babies this is what I think of:

That wonderful Vintage Baby image was compliments of Vintage Image Crafts where the owners are very generous with their images. Sign up to receive their Newsletter or add them as a friend on Facebook so you don't miss out on FREE IMAGES. ---> HERE


Check out the sentiment that I placed on the inside where I also had the opportunity to play with another one of the new "Vintage Background" stamps by NinaB available at Gina K Designs:

CHALLENGES I USED:
Vintage Image Crafts: Use their images as the main focus on any project
The Shabby Tea Room: Comforts of Home Inspiration((tooth powder is pretty comforting but I was also inspired by the colors)
Cute Card Thursday: Make Your Own (I made my own ribbon out of scraps fabric, also created my own Tag from a digital image I found online)
KL Stampin N Scrappin Challenge: Inside/Out (finish the inside of the card also)
Your Next Stamp: Going Dotty (I used polka dot patterned paper)
Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge: Going Krafty (create a card using Kraft CS as your Base)

..........Supplies I used.............
Stamps: Gina K Designs (Vintage Images by NinaB)
Images: Vintage Image Crafts (crying baby), Shabby Chic Papirskatter(images: label, tooth powder & crown)
Paper: Paper Trey Ink (kraft), K&Co (bailey paper pack), Stampin Up (very vanilla)
Ink: Stampin Up (close to cocoa)
Misc: Homemade ribbon from scraps of cloth, Papertrey Ink (button)

Superb card, Justine. Love the inside border. Very clever cutout... Looks like you used a border punch!

Truer words were never spoken! Great sentiment.

GORGEOUS Justine!!!

That's my 2nd child! I believe he cried straight for 9 months, then he stopped and is my most easy going one out of the four! I guess he got it out of his system! ha ha

You create such beautiful vintage cards!!!
Hugs & blessings!
