The Greeting Farm Relay Day 3: Toby

Howdy Partners! It is the 3rd day of the Relay with the Greeting Farm, and I am so happy that I’ve gotten to this point! I have put some of my other projects aside to get it done… but I am really trying to finish everything on my plate! Come and meet baby Toby!

My friend Tori just had a baby girl. Her name is Charlotte (I know… Charlotte was from yesterday…but, she wasn’t exactly good for a baby car ya know?). So, I thought this little bear was perfect for her! I had this nice big “C” from which I thought was perfect. The patterned paper is from Imaginisce.

I colored Toby in using my Spectracolor pencils. I sure am getting to use them a lot lately and it is fabulous! They had been neglected for so long, it feels great to have them out again!

I was thinking of adding a couple of jewels or pearls to this card… to embellish it a bit further. But, I’m on the fence about it. I kinda like the simplicity of it. I mean, it’s a baby card… it shouldn’t be too overdone should it? What’s your opinion???

I hope to have another post up today, so please be sure to check back. I have a whole mess of projects I’m working on at once and I hope to have something else finished a bit later. Until then… ta-ta!
