Oldie But Goodie Baby Challenge ,, GD card

I was thrilled to be asked to be a GD for this month on the Oldie but Goodie Challenge :-) thanks girls xx

For the next fortnight the theme is

BABY ,, cute :-)

This Penny Black Baby Hammock stamp was one of the very first ones I bought and is still one of my faves :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are Kaiser Craft and I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch , some ribbon, a ribbon slider and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops.

I made a tag to write a greeting on that could slide behind the welcome baby sentiment :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Paper Sundaes ,,,, Stripes
Penny Black Saturday ,,,,, More than one fold
