Happy (simple) Baby Boy!

Hello! Sorry i've been such a sporadic blogger lately. Life is getting in the way of my "me" time! I'm home today, though, so I'm going to try to get a few things done! I miss stamping - especially since I'm still buying more stuff..lol

Today I made this simple little baby boy set for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. The sponsor this week is Lil' Inker Designs, owned by my great buddy Laura Pryor! She is such a joy to know and the pinwheel die and stamp set is a favorite of mine.

Here are this week's colors:



We were to use Navy, White, and one other color. Well, my favorite combo with navy and white is kraft. I think it's such a calm and masculine combination.



And here is my project:








































The card also works for this week's Card Patterns sketch, seen here:








Here is a close-up of the card:





I really wanted to make something simple, but cute. I think this fits! We have a new baby in our family, so this gift bag will be filled with gifts for Mom and baby and shipped off to Seattle today!


I hope you get a chance to play along with both the Color Throwdown and Card Patterns challenges this week. There are great prizes to be had on both!!


Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!!

Great idea to use the ribbon to anchor the pin wheel and a truly classic colour scheme to boot - great!

Your pinwheels are really cute. So neat that you made a gift bag and card, both with the pinwheels. They colors are perfect for a sweet new little baby boy!
