Babies don't keep...


Isn't that true - mine grew up way too soon and those times just don't come back. This card was made for the Flourishes Release Challenge HERE. This month's challenge was a sketch and of course I was low on time, so took the easy way and went with the poem from last month's release set "Baby Love". This poem I truly love and has been a favorite of mine for for years. If only we could always remember and appreciate it. I used a white CS for the base and then the pink DP is Little Princess from Provo Craft, the yellow and pink is from SandyLion - I'm pretty sure it's no longer available - too bad, I love the pattern and the happy sweet colors. I'll continue to hoard this and use it by bits and pieces. The background for the focal point is a tag by K & Co. from Michaels. The ribbon is also from Michael's, the button twine is from Paper Trey, and the button is from a decorative button pack from the craft store. The trim is from my stash, but I still see it at the craft stores.

Take Care and have a wonderful weekend!

My babies are 5 and 8 and it seems like yesterday that I brought them home. I miss them now that they are both in school full time. Your card is beautiful and you are right, babies don't keep.
