January Diva Dare ~ Day 2

Hi there!!  It's Jackie here and I'm excited to be here for day 2 of the Diva Dare!  I'll give you the details of the dare and I'll show you how I answered the dare!

We dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Baby Love!  The baby part could be for a new little someone...or a special someone!  Be sure to look for the details on how you can win some new Verve goodies at the end of this post!

I have to say that this last release was probably my FAVORITE Verve release to date!  I am a SUCKER for a great baby set, even though my babies are not babies anymore, so I couldn't wait to get To the Moon a little more inky!  I can't get enough of these darling images that Julee designed!

But first, I couldn't get two things out of my head: 

1)  The first Viva la Verve sketch of the year designed by Amber (LOVE this sketch) 
and 2)  THIS adorable card made my our own Amy Sheffer.  I just love the frame and had to do the same technique (Thanks, Amy!)

I made a baby card using the Viva la Verve sketch and tried Amy's "window" technique on the frame.  So fun and so easy!!  I love inspiration from other stampers, especially when I'm in desperate need for it!  LOL

I used some new Making Memories Je t'adore patterned papers that I picked up at my LSS.  Some twill ribbon, a gem flourish some sewing and embellishments finish off the card.  I LOVE how it turned out!

So......will you answer the dare?  If so, here are some details:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Baby Love creation (posted January 14th or later) to the linky widget on the DAY ONE Diva Dare post before midnight MST on January 29th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em we would  LOVE to see ‘em!

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we share our Baby Love creations. One lucky commenter will win the Verve stamp set of his or her choosing!  Winners will be announced on Monday, January 31st right here on the Verve blog.

So go ahead and show us your Baby Love creations...we DARE you!
