Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - Baby Love

Welcome to the April Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop. This month our theme BABY LOVE is close to my heart, as I have a lovely new baby grand daughter. There is nothing better than grandma cuddles!

I'm sure you will enjoy some baby love inspiration from each of the Stampin' Up!® demonstrators  from around the world who are taking part in this blog hop.

So let's get to some "baby love".....

I chose to use the "Made with Love" stamp set and combined some background stamps from Gorgeous Grunge.  Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake classic inks are used for all stamping and water colouring.


I used to dabble in quilting and like to find inspiration from many different crafts, so today I have made some little patchwork squares and filled them with stamped images and little animals.  I fussy cut the animals so they would fit inside the squares. The little patchwork squares are created using the 1 3/8" circle punch and  the 1" square punch.  Simply place the cut out square inside the circle and fold the edges inward. The paper I used is English Garden Designer Series Paper.

I coloured the baby animals  using an Aqua Painter - I love water colouring!

 I hope you enjoy this card and will follow along to the next person on the list below.

Until Next time
