Last Challenge Creation for 2010

It is so hard to believe that today is the 
Boy this last year really flew by!  But it was a GOOD YEAR so I'm thankful for that and looking forward to 2011!

Today I'd like to share with you a creation I made for the City Crafter #37 Challenge - STAMP IT OUT!  I have gotten so involved with the digi world in past months that my rubber stamps have been a little neglected so I thought I'd play this challenge and 'get inky'.  There is also a challenge out there to use "BABY" as the theme but for the life of me, I can't locate it now ... but anyways, that was the purpose behind my stamp selection.  (ooops, figured it out ... Sentimental Sundays)

Here is the RECIPE for this creation:

Stamp:  Serendipity Stamps (dress), Stampin' Up (sentiment)
Papers:  DCWV Nursery dp, whisper white, 
scraps for paper piecing
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Fiskars swivel craft knife, Nestabilities Labels 14, Kaiser pearls, Pop Dots
Technique:  Paper Piecing

A few other challenges this creation qualifies for are as follows:
Southern Girls #9 - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge Blog - I is for Infant
Sentimental Sundays - Baby
For Fun Challenges - Anything Goes

Prairie Fairy Fridays - New Beginnings

A quick thank you to Chris (Twinkles Glow with Stamps) for some of the challenge links my card qualifies for!  If you've never been to Chris's blog ... OH MY STARS, you really need to stop over and check out her work ... it is AMAZING!!

Okay then ... until NEXT YEAR ... Happy Crafting and God Bless You All!   If you are out partying tonight ... be careful, have fun and make sure you have a designated driver ... I want to see you ALL back here next year!
