Whimsical Wednesday Ch #20 - Inspiring Words Challenge

**Click HERE for the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party**

We have another fun challenge today at Whimsical Wednesday!  You must stop by to see the inspiration photo then create a project/card inspired by one of the words in the picture. You must also include that word on your project/card.  The first word that stuck out to me was "Love" and then I immediately thought of babies, so I made a baby card for your inspiration today! 

I'm going to apologize right now for the picture quality.  My camera is on the way to the becoming my kids camera if it keeps this up!  I've been trying to get it to last until Christmas but it is not looking good!  I think I may need to replace it before then!  Here is my Baby Love card

Lately, I have been making all my cards oddly sized.  I have a drawer full of different sized envelopes that I am trying to use.  I'm pretty sure the elephant was from Sugar & Spice cart.  All the papers/cut outs were pulled from my scrap pile!  The sentiment, bakers twine (on the tail) and Crinkle Ribbon are all from My Craft Spot

The Design Team sneak peeks are amazing at Whimsical Wednesday and I can't wait to see what inspired them this week!  Barb from Bug Bites is sponsoring our challenge with her All Year Around Stamp Set.  Thanks Barb!  Please join us for our photo inspiration challenge!  You still have a week to play the Three Times A Charm challenge and you'll have two weeks to play our new challenge!  Thanks for stopping by today!

How lovely is this soft, sweet card! :o) The elephant is so adorable.. I love his happy polka dots and sprightly twine! The crinkle ribbon looks fantastic. The sentiment, of course, is perfect... just like those precious little buttons. Which is fitting, since babies are cute as a button. :o) Beautiful work as always, my friend! :o)

Hugs and blessings!

This is so sweet! Isn't that sentiment just precious?! And lucky you with all those envelopes! I tend to make my cards first and then think... Shoot! I don't have an envelope to fit this!

AWWW your card is totally adorable. I don't see any issues with the picture quality. Everything looks so perfect, and the colors are very soft. I just love the that little elephant and how you used twine for her little tail. This is the perfect baby card. Oh, and let me in on where you are getting the odd sized envelopes. I NEED SOME so bad. I can only find the standard A2 size. You did a fabulous job with this challenge! Such great inspiration.

I bought a bunch of this paper (I think it's animal crackers) before my daughter was born (2 years ago) and have yet to use it!
