Baby Boy Cards at Cardz TV

Happy Friday crafting friends!
The Mailbox Smiles Team have a new challenge for you starting today.

As always, our challenge is Anything Goes.
Prize ~ A stamp set from Cardz TV.

As you may already know, a new bundle of joy graced our family last week. My little grandson was born on Tuesday.

Since my daughter has done everything for him in the Lion King theme, I decided to make this card for his birth.

I think that by now you realize that I'm addicted to stitched cards. I really enjoy this activity - it's just so relaxing. Mostly I sit in my hobby room, put some music on softly in background and stitch away.  But it's also something that I can take on the go.  I have a small tin where I put all the supplies I'm busy with and just pop it in my bag :-)  How I wish I knew how to do this when my kids were at school.  It would have made those countless hours of waiting in car lines, band practices, Taekwon-do, etc. a lot more pleasant :-)

Now to get back to this card ... card base is from Recollections - 5.5" x 5.5" in white.  Cardstocks are all from GinaK.  All the animals were royalty free images from Google.  Since I firmly believe that babies are a gift from God, I was so excited to have the Heavenly stamp set from Cardz TV.  Take a quick look at this set ...

Isn't it a wonderful set? Such sweet and precious sentiments that you can use both on the front of your cards and on the inside.  Of course, these can also be used on a variety of projects - the possibilities are endless.

I was commissioned by my son to make a card for his little nephew.  Since he bought him a teddy bear, I thought this next card was perfect.

For this card, I used the Silhouette cut file # 80431.  Cardstocks are all from GinaK.
To go with the whole teddy bear theme, there are no better stamps than those found on the  Cardz TV Beary Sweet stamp set.  Take a look ...

Just look at all these "Beary" fun stamps :-)
