Caardvarks and CSS

Exciting news! Clear and Simple stamps is sponsoring Caardvarks again in April!! We're doing a dual Blog Hop with both Design Teams, along with a regular card challenge. The challenge card winner, along with three random blog hop winners, will receive a $25 gift certificate to CSS. Pretty cool, huh?

The challenge theme is BABY, which goes perfectly with CSS' newest SOTM release, Rock-a-bye, which you can get for a $1 discount using the code CSS0410. But since the USPS is STILL holding my DT package hostage somewhere I went with my old favorite baby standby, Little One to create this quick and easy card using one of the best baby sentiments out there and some super cute baby themed papers from the Ducks in a Row paper pack from October Afternoon. I added some buttons from CSS's new-ish line of notions and some zig-zag stitching with my sewing machine and called it good. Here are all of the details:
Stamps: Little One (CSS) Paper: Kraft Like a Rockstar, A Blanc Check (CSS); Ducks in a Row DP (October Afternoon) Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko) Accessories: Scallop border punch (SU); Zig-zag stitching; I'm a Princess Pink buttons, On the Catwalk Cream buttons, Simply Blue-tiful buttons (CSS)

So, hop on down the list and leave comments on all the posts to be eligible to win the prize. Complete List of Blog Hop Participants is below. You have until midnight (PST) April 17 to complete the hop and enter your challenge card. Once you've completed the hop, return to Caardvarks and leave a comment that you've finished!! Good luck!!
