Paper Sweeties Baby Blog Hop!


Happy World Card Making Day - 2013!

babybloghopHello sweeties!  Welcome to a very special event today here at Paper Sweeties!  All of us on the Design Team are here to help our very own sweetie, Jinny Newlin, celebrate the exciting news that she is expecting her third little bundle of joy!  We couldn't be any happier for Jinny and wish her and her sweet little family all the joy and blessings our hearts can hold!

papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(7)In honor of this joyous occasion, the Sweeties Teamies decided to get together and host a Baby Blog Hop!  We all have created a little something 'sweet' to share with everyone today on our blogs.  I created a little card called 'Sweet Baby' in a soft corn flower yellow and mint green palette since Jinny doesn't know yet whether she is having a boy or girl.papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(8)I used the Fancy Monograms, Little Wishes and Make Today Beautiful stamp sets along with Primrose Cookie Dough and Mint Green Tea seam binding from the Paper Sweeties boutique on my card.

papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(6)And it wouldn't quite be a party without presents, right?  So, how about we give out a few!  We have several different ways for you to be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Paper Sweeties and we will choose THREE lucky winners!  Winners will be announced on October 31st!
