Come peek into the nursery

No no no...not Isiah's nursery, but the Greeting Farm's! :D
Hi everyone and a happy happy Monday to you all. I hope the weekend was super and Dad's day went well? DH was so funny, he wanted no fanfare. I got my van's safety check done and we ended up not barbecuing. I think he had a great day though - very low profile and easy. (I, on the otherhand, expect the royal treatment on Mother's Day. haha!)
Marie presented her latest challenge over at The Greeting Farm and don't worry, it's not another sketch challenge that I destroyed. It was to create a card using 3+ TGF stamps (any is fine). The funny thing was, an idea popped into my head the night before to use Nurse Anya with the latest Oh Baby line.
No need to peek in quietly, baby Anya is up and ready for her feeding:
I wanted a really sweet baby girl nursery so I used a digi hardwood floor and soft pink polka dot walls. Then I found a bigger dotted DP to use on baby Anya's clothes. Nurse Anya usually holds a tray with juice and food, but I substituted the bottle instead. The framed sentiment is part of the baby set.
Here is a closer look at baby:
I wanted her in some sort of bed so I bowed a scalloped circle to make a bassinet. It is held in place with silver brads, I added a pastel blanket and pink pillow, as well as a little rattle. I acutally ended up using 5 stamps on this card which is really easy to do as her images are fun to combine.
Now I know she's absolutely adorable and that we could make silly faces at her through the glass all day, but go and get creative! You have until Wednesday the 24th to upload into TGF's Gallery, the winner gets to choose 3 TGF stamps.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone! And if you would like to be part of my Craft Room Tour, please read the post below for the details. :D
*Love and Aloha*
