CAS - Baby

I almost forgot to post my card for this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  The challenge is to create something baby themed.  On Friday, I managed to make some time to pull out my adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set, Plus One, and make a card:

The inspiration for the paper choice came from the CASE Study challenge muse Laura Bassen. Her work is fabulous!

The paper is from Echo Park, the sentiment is Hero Arts. At first I had the letters b-a-b-y on each of the wheels, but I decided I didn't like it, so I found some buttons and added cream floss for the wheels instead. For the mat I decided to mix both the pink and blue to match the paper-pieced images. The seam lines are covered with thin white ribbon to give it a more finished look.

This past week I have been busy making cards to submit to Paper Crafts Magazine. Their call for submissions ends March 12th, so I am hoping to work on a couple more cards before then. I created a card on Saturday that I would like to submit, but I intended it for the Card Patterns Challenge...so I'm not sure what I will do with that card.

I have two home sick today - a nasty stomach bug brought home by my oldest on Thursday.  My son found out the hard way that he should not finish off his sister's lunch. They usually remember not to share food when they're sick, but...??  I don't think he'll forgot that rule again.  Thankfully he seems to be doing a bit better this morning. :)

Have a good day, and thanks for stopping by!
