Little Boy Blue

Hello there!  I hope you've had a good week since we last got together here. :-)


This last week at work was very, very busy for me. Business seems to have picked up, and that's a good thing!  I had NO energy left by the time I'd get home.  Instead of heading up to my craft studio, I succumbed to the lure of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune on TV. It was my feeble attempt to have a little fun.  Ha!


I'm working on getting my Etsy shop open, little by little. I've already got a shop -- https://www.etsy.com/shop/CDietrichDesigns -- but there are no listings in it yet. 

There are many things to consider, with 'branding', packaging, shipping, etc. I need a shop banner, too, and it's taking a little while to create. My darling 14 year old daughter helped me with it last weekend, using GIMP (a free editing tool, very similar to Adobe Photoshop). It needs a bit of tweaking, but wow, what a great help she was to me!


The card I'm sharing today really has my heart. Yes, it's intended for a little baby boy, with all that blue, but it is rather frilly. In my opinion, baby cards are really meant to appeal to mom and dad, anyway, so I'm sure this would be appreciated by a special couple who are blessed with a new little boy. :-)

If you have any questions on the materials I've used, please feel free to email me (look for the "Contact Me" tab at the top of the blog) or leave a comment and a way to reach you.

Thanks so much for taking a peek today, and hope you have a great day!

So delicate and sweet Colleen! I think baby boy cards can have some frilliness too!!

Your card is very sweet and adorable, and I love all baby cards with a touch of frill, boy or girl.
