Her Name is Eloise

My oldest nephew and his wife recently became new parents.......

  Her name is Eloise......

Isn't she adorable???????  She looks just like my nephew - or at least I think her pictures look just like baby pictures of my nephew.  I have not had the opportunity yet to see her in person.

I needed an "excuse" :o) to use a new stamp and what better excuse but to celebrate the birth of a new baby.  Here is what I ended up with....

Yes, I know the image isn't of a baby but I've heard that they grow up fast so......  Anyhoo, the little girl image just looks like an Eloise - doesn't she? 

And since I made this card using my new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp "Spring Friends", I figured I should go ahead and enter it in this week's "Anything Goes" challenge that Kraftin' Kimmie is having. 

Supplies used:

pink and green cardstock - Bazzill Basics Paper
stamped image - Spring Friends (retired) by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
alphabet stickers - Studio Calico
white cardstock and green "bling" - stash

I added color to the image using my Martha Stewart colored pencils.  I know that lots of papercrafters prefer markers (such as Copic) but I really like the look of colored pencils and that is what I use most of the time when I add color to the images.

So, let's all give Eloise a warm out SHE comes!


  1. Oh, love this card!!! Such a cute baby too!!

  2. What a sweet baby and lots of hair. Love the card.
