Viva las Bebes!

Today begins a new challenge at Pile It On; we're sponsored by Pin & Tack, so we have the theme of "Clips and/or Pins." 

I've run across Viva Las VegaStamps several times over the past few months, so I just had to sign up for their free stamp grab bag, which you get when you post their logo permanently on your sidebar. I got lots of fun stamps, including this funny sentiment I thought be perfect for my sister-in-law who is expecting a baby boy in June (her other boy is only 11 months old right now!): "The only time a woman came change a man is when he's a baby."




I machine-stitched the blue-and-white striped fabric swatch onto a cream cardstock for the base. I taped, and then machine-stitched, white silk and net ribbons together (both from May Arts). The tag is made from cream fabric and machine-stitched with white thread. I attached it to the ribbon with two mini safety pins from Creative Impressions.

And yes, that's an actual Baby Wipe in the middle!

Inspiration/Challenges:
by lori designs: Sentiment
Craft Room Challenge: Handmade Embellishments
Cute Card Thursday: Eye For Detail (I spent a lot of time on the details)
Inspire Me Fridays: Always Anything goes
Simply Create Too: Mothers Day or Female
Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Handmade Embellishments
