But if you like dancing, I'll make it rain rhythm, and rhyme, and melodies, child...

Hey guys! Thanks for all the congrats & stuff about the Elzybells team. I feel loved! *grin*
Today my mind was on babies, since my BFF Peyton is due in September, but may be having her sweetie Olivia sooner than that. (sidenote: If you are the praying type, please keep Peyton & Olivia's health in yours. Good thoughts are awesome, too! Thanks!)

Ok, back to stamping. *wink*

I decided to use the Baby First set from My Favorite Things for this card. Love this set and its tiny baby images! JulieHRR issued a challenge for the Dirty Dare 2008, and I thought this would be perfect!
Cute, huh? I am pretty happy with how this turned out, white space and all. I stamped the mother and baby lamb and sentiment onto my Fabriano card base. After I watercolored the image and let it dry, I pierced a border around the image for a little more emphasis. The finishing touch is just a bit of Pink Taffeta ribbon. Love it!

I am fast and furious working on all the challenges for a "Day in the Life of a Dirty Girl." You can see all the info HERE if you're a Splitcoast Fan Club Member. Not a member? All the details are HERE. It's totally worth it!

Hope you have a fabulous day...see you tomorrow!

Stamps: Baby First (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Fabriano Card
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Accessories: Waterbrush & Reinkers, SU Taffeta Ribbon, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack

This is so cute! I'm so envious of your white space!! Ha ha! I have such problems with doing that. I just keep adding and adding - I don't know when to stop. I love the pierced border around the image too. Very clever! Great job!
