Baby, Baby, Baby!

Before school ended last month, I made a baby boy card for the custodian at our elementary school.  He became a first-time grandpa, and I just had to get the baby a little somethin'.  While I was making his card, I created several more for Arts Plus, the shop where I sell my cards.


All stamps are from Inspired By Stamping.  The sweet onesies and tiny dresses are from Oh, Baby! and Fancy Alphabet made easy work of the "baby blocks." All the little garments were paper-pieced using scraps.....never-ending scraps.  ;-)


This baby boy card is entering at Lawnscaping - "Paper Piecing", and Addicted To Stamps - "CAS" and 4 Crafty Chicks - "Let's Hear It For The Boys."


And the little princess card is entering here:  In The Pink - "Pink and Pearlie"; Charisma Cardz - "Girly".



It was almost like playing paper dolls!  Used to love that when I was little, and my girls did, too.  How about you?

P.S. There is a new post up at my photo blog, bleu hydrangea.  All the photos were taken by my 11 year old, but you'd never know.  She's got a great eye.  Here is a little sample to entice you to visit:




Stamps: Oh, Baby!; Fancy Alphabet - Inspired By Stamping Paper: white - PTI; Pretty In Pink, Bashful Blue, patterns - SU Ink: Pretty In Pink, Bashful Blue - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: honest-to-goodness bakery twine, pink satin ribbon; twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools:  square, scalloped square dies - Spellbinders; pearls

I am stopping by to say THANK YOU for your sweet comment for me at Moxie Fab World and then I saw these, soft blue, sweet pink, girl or boy, they are just lovely beyond words, and I thought I should leave and move on but then, the beautiful hydrangea caught my eyes just before I "step out", what a beauty, she sure got great eyes for a photographer, maybe you could get her to join us here at Our Beautiful World (www.our--beautiful--world--365.blogspot.com)
