Hello Baby!


....and hello again to all of you Flourishes Fans!  Hasn't this been a beautiful release?  Today's sweetness will win you over I'm sure :)  It's a precious new baby set that I think you'll really love, it's called Hello Baby!  


I did a lot of the coloring for this release while I was in the hospital with my Dad keeping him company in ICU.  Prismacolors pencils don't smell in any way so it was easy to color up images and not disturb him at all :)  So, I inked up this lovely sweet scene onto Kraft paper and created this!  Such a sweet little laundry line right?


I've paired the stamped image with some beautiful new baby themed paper in the store...Little Darlings from Graphic 45.  SO cute!  I've also added some wonderful Nestabling Labels 18 pearls over the Labels 18 die cut shape, and then some sweet elastic gingham ribbon.  

Want to win this set? All you need to do is leave some love in the  form of a comment on the blogs below! Why? You need to try to figure out who the Mystery Blogger is amoung us today.  We don’t know which one it is… so the more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances you have to win!
