Today is World Cardmaking Day! I am going to share my first card created especially for it and it is also the very first time I have created a gatefold card. And, it is a new baby card - a first child for a friend of my son. Oh, and yesterday I got my delivery of Julie Nutting baby stamps and I used 2 of them!

I started with the Tall & Skinny Sketch #417
 from Mojo Monday.

And now without further ado...
my card!

 time for some close-ups!

The carriage & the teddy bear 
are two of Julie's new stamps!

 I added a sentiment on the bottom flap.

and a few more to the inside!

in case you can't read them...they say-

babies touch the world with love
Welcome Baby

I am entering this card into Fashionable Stamping Challenge #103 Words.

I also entered this in Turtle Soup 
WCMD A Different Fold challenge.  

I'm heading out to visit a sick friend and to get my laundry done but when I come back I hope to squeeze in a quick card or two before heading to bed!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!


I was able to complete two more tags for breast cancer awareness month with my fun paperdolls.

Here is Taylor-

and close-ups!

I think this sentiment is so perfect.

Courage doesn't always roar.  
Sometimes courage
 is the quiet voice 
at the end of the day saying,
 "I will try again tomorrow."

and now meet Natalie!


I am going to share these for the First Anniversary challenge at Paper Doll Trading, in challenge #203 Anything Goes over at Word Art Wednesday and in challenge #103 Words over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!

Thanks for stopping by!
