PDCC #79

I love it when I have time to create a little something each day! I hope nap time lasts FOREVER! And I hope when Noah comes that I can get them both on the same nap schedule eventually! Whew! Just thinking about it makes me miss my crafty time!

So today when nap time rolled around, I tackled Play Date Cafe's Challenge #79. I love Play Date's challenges and I love these colors together!!

This card was made for my friend who just had a little baby boy! I started the card with a Basic Gray cardstock base which I inked the edges with Basic Gray ink and a sponge. The red polka dot paper came from my scrap box and I believe it was from a Making Memories Christmas line a few years ago. The lime green paper also came from my scrap box and is by Basic Grey. I used Stampin Up's Top Note Sizzix Die to cut out this shape.

The elephant stamp is by Stampin Up: Baby Steps. It's a single stamp sold in the a la carte section in the front of the catalog (#117092, $8.95USD, page 19 IB&C). I used Basic Gray and Real Red ink to stamp this image.

The buttons are also from Stampin Up! And the little Basic Gray polka strip came from one of Stampin Up's old Simply Scrappin kits.

I hope you enjoy this card and I hope you find a little time to be creative today just like I did!!

Don't blame you for wanting that nap time to come! I didn't have this craft/addiction when my kids were in the napping phases of their lives, but I would've been *dying* for them to go down so I could craft! LOL

Your elephant card is super sweet and we are glad you had time to share it with us at The pLay Date CAfe!
