Hello Baby!

Hello friends and a happy Monday!
It is snowing pretty good out there today.  I wish all of my friends on the East Coast to stay safe and warm during what is being forecast a heavy snow storm for them this afternoon.

I have been pretty busy "behind the scenes" here working on several different things I have going on at the moment.  I will share with you in soon enough time, but for today I have a very simple, but really fun card to share:
I really LOVE playing with my TAWS stamps and I wanted to be sure to have a chance at playing around with some of the new sets that I bought!
So for my card, I've embossed the Line Upon Line stamp with clear embossing powder on the banner and then took my distress inks to blend the colors together.  The embossed image resists the ink.
I then took this adorable teddy bear image from the Got It Covered stamp set, colored him with my Copic markers and die cut him out with My Favorite Things stitched circle dies. I used some foam tape to pop it up over the banner and base of the card.
I added a sentiment from the TAWS More Than Words stamp set to finish it off for my baby card.

Hope you like my share today and I'll be back again with you tomorrow for a fun new challenge with a very special card that I made.
Thanks for stopping by!
