JAI #85

So I got all inspired to create a card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. One of my best friends is having a baby boy soon, so now I've started preparing for his arrival! Only another 10 things to finish making for him... and his big sister, so she doesn't feel left out :)

I was also *dying* to play with all my new toys, which arrived yesterday!! I almost hugged the postie when his van came up the driveway last night. Then I stayed up waaaay too late unpacking, checking and mounting my new stamps! One set I've been drooling over since I first saw it is the Baroque Motifs set. I know on it's own it doesn't scream "baby", but I think it works well just lifting up the background. I can't wait to use it on more cards... especially Christmas ones!

That's enough exclamation marks from me for one day... more on my first official workshop later!


  1. Baroque Motifs can go on just about any sort of card - even a baby one. Love the layout and I'm glad you had fun with your new stuff.

  2. Love how you used the little animal image from I Dig You perfect for a baby card :)The baroque swirls look lovely in the background too. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink.

  3. I agree with the other girls, Baroque Motifs works well on most card types, including baby cards. Love the focus on the animals and the colour combo. Cute card. Thanks for joining in again with the challenge at Just Add Ink Lou.
