Baby Blessings_SNSS, The Pink Elephant

Welcome to day two of the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop.


If you just came here from Teresa's blog, you are in the right place.

If not, you may want to go back and start at the beginning with Korin's Blog and work your way from there so you don't miss any of the great eye candy from each of the Design Team members.


The card sketch for this card is from sketch #25 at The Pink Elephant. I just turned it to fit my stamp.

I sometimes find it hard to make masculine cards. With this one, I wanted it to look like it was for a baby boy so I used nontraditional baby colors.
This stamp set is called Baby Blessings from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

The other main image in this set is a Giraffe and can be seen a few posts down.
This is a fantastic set with lots of verses to go with it.


The paper is from Close to my Heart.


The stitching is done by hand with two different colors of embroidery floss, olive and dutch blue. It may be hard to see the two different colors in the photo.


From here you want to hop on over to Lori's Blog.
