Welcome Allie!

My friends, Lauren and Mark, just recently had a baby girl! Today I wanted to share the card I made to welcome sweet little Allie into the world:

I LOVE personalizing cards with alphabet stamps! I think it adds a special little touch! Here I used Smitty's ABCs (Lawn Fawn). After I stamped the letters onto my banner I felt like it was a bit plain, so I stamped the Small Stitched Circle (DeNami Design) around each letter. I like the comfy cozy handmade feel it adds to the card---what do you think?!?!

I'm also going to enter this card into the Simon Says: Anything Goes Challenge!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hope your week is off to a GREAT start!
