Default JUN12VSNH ~ Saturday, June 16th ~ 4:00pm EST ~ Baby's Journey

Title: Baby's Journey
Hostess: Candace, candylou
Keyword: JUN12VSNH
Day/Date: Saturday, June 16th
Time: 4:00pm EST

Hi there! This is my second time hosting a VSN challenge, and I'm excited to share my challenge with you today! First of all, I have to thank my friend, Crafty Math Chick, for this challenge idea. I mentioned to her that I wanted to do a baby card for my VSN challenge, but I wasn't quite sure about the details of it. She came up with this wonderful challenge and shared this sweet poem with me, so I cannot take the credit for it! Thank you!!!

This challenge is inspired by this poem:
Baby's First Journey by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Lightly they hold him and lightly they sway him-
Soft as a pillow are somebody's arms.
Down he goes slowly, ever so lowly
Over the rim of the cradle they lay him-
Baby's first journey is free from alarms.

Baby is growing while Mama sings by-lo,
Sturdy and rosy and laughing and fair,
Crowing and growing past every one's knowing,
Out goes the cradle and in comes the 'high-lo,'
Baby's next journey is into this chair.

Crying or cooing or waking or sleeping,
Baby is ever a thing to adore.
Look at him yonder-oh what a wonder,
Who would believe it, the darling is creeping,
Baby's next journey is over the floor.

Sweeter and cuter and brighter and stronger,
Mama can see every day how he's grown.
Shoes are all battered, stockings all tattered,
Oh! but the baby is baby no longer
Look at the fellow-he's walking alone!

Challenge: Incorporate movement/motion/travel into a baby card. For example, you could make a card/project with a baby carriage, stroller, stork, a mobile (since it moves), a rocking chair, etc. I hope you have fun with my challenge!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST on Monday, June 17th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.

Hi Candace! I love your baby card! It is wonderful! I have lots of baby stamps, and usually make a card just when I need it. So it will be nice to have one done for next time!

Hi, Sharon! Thanks for stopping by! I am the same way with cards. I just make them when I need them, and then I never have baby, wedding, or sympathy cards on hand! ...or birthday cards!

Loved the poem, too-- Got me thinking about how babies and toddlers learn by exploring. Great challenge! However, my resources for baby images are limited, and I ended up with yet another baby buggy. What's different about this card is that I'd disassembled another card to make it.

Thanks for the challenge Candace! My friend just has a baby boy a couple of days ago and I needed to make a baby card anyway - I'm like the others who said that they just make as they need them

Here is my card Candace! Baby Coming! I ran into some problems. Had it almost done, and went to cut out the Bliss Blue panel, and found out the rest of my Bliss Blue was a different color! So, had to redo the white panel to fit a blue that I could cut! Eeek!

thank you for your time and challenge. Love the poem And guess what, I have a baby card ready! Hope it is a boy! LOL

I used my three panel Easter stamp of little animals that move. I also added a few rattles which move as well. Here's my card.
