Whiff of Joy Welcome Baby

Alison Acton one of the amazing illustrators for Whiff of Joy is having her first baby, a boy (Sam). The challenge is to make a "welcome baby" card for her & her husband Jim and enter it into a draw to win some amazing stamps from the company.

This is the card that I put together for the challenge. Since we didn't need to use a Whiff of Joy stamp to enter, and since I unfortunately don't own any, I used this cute stamp from Inkadinkado.

I love making baby cards! And as an added bonus to making this card for Alison & Jim there is candy being given away. Each one of the following lovely ladies has candy up for grabs on thier blogs to go along with this challenge.















Be sure to head on over to the blogs of these lovely ladies and find out more about this challenge. Let's see how many cards we can send to Alison & Jim to welcome baby Sam.

That's not all for this card though....I also made this card to enter into 5 more challenges!!! This is the most challenges I have ever done on one single card. The 5 challenges are: Stampin Sisters In Christ (baby), Die Cut Dreams (baby), Crafting Lifes Pieces (sketch), Incy Wincy Designs (animal), Cupcake Craft Challenge (buttons & stitches).

Here is the sketch that was provided by Crafting Life's Pieces:

Supplies Used:

Image: Inkadinkado Stamp

Sentiment: Fiskars Baby Clear Stamp Set

Lace: Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch
