Happy Hump Day! I have a cutie for you today! I can see you smiling right now as that is always what happens to me when I see this sweet little lion…..heck when I see any of these 3 images from the A Little Wild Bundle.

This has been a super popular bundle from the annual catalog and it’s cousin, Seasonal Chums from the Holiday Catalog has been just as popular (head’s up….you will see this one next week) I think that Stampin’ Up! was oh so smart in the design of these bundles – you can see that today, I snipped it off to just use the front of the sweet lion.

When a loved one asks me to make them a card...I JUMP ON IT and that is what today’s card is about. Ashleigh, my peeps sweetie is going to a baby shower this weekend and was in need of a card for a sweet little baby that will be entering this world soon….and being that she is super clean and classic herself, this card was super appropriate!







This is a great card to call a …“Let’s Break It Down Card”aka, LBIDC!!! Are you saying WHAT THE HECK????? Well, hang tight!

To me, this is “my kinda card” as it is clean and simple but it has texture, a bit of bling and dimension….to me, a PERFECT COMBINATION for a sweet card!

I do not make a bunch of baby cards….but the (2) stamps sets that I am using today…..are FAB-O ones to have in your stampin’ stash. The sentiment inside of from Moon Baby and I think that you can agree…that is a KEEPER and check out this card that I made from that set back in August…..a love them both – super stamps set as they are super practical and classic!







Let’s break some of the basics here…and then you can step back and see….YEP, it IS a simple card!







We haven’t chatted lately about “style” – Let’s face it…we all have a certain style that we gravitate to and if you are on my blog, you probably are pretty clean and simple. I often hear…”I don’t know what my style is” – here is a tip and I hope that you take this to heart…..






This layout would be a great one to play around with….how about it??? – give it a try?!?!?! This card is all about simple shapes. The size of this card is a 4 1/4″ square but feel free to give it a try with a regular A-2 card.







I shared with you that I stamped a sentiment on the inside….well, here it is….very simple, yet classic and a wee bit of fun with adding some stars. Remember, less is best many times. Just look how simple yet so sweet.








There you go…something to brighten up your HUMP DAY! I was super happy with the end result and you know that you could ealiy flip this to be a boy card.

I admit, I am having a “creative block” as I am still not in the full swing of things….but I’m getting there…..I miss creating daily and I miss my creative mojo – it’s coming….I’m being patient but I hope that this sweet lion perked you up today!

It feels great to blog….I have missed you guys…..see you Friday!
