I needed a card for a friend whose wife just had a baby boy. It was kind of a last minute card for an impromptu “after baby” shower. I ran out last night to pick up a card along with a gift, but I just couldn’t do it. Maybe I’m a card snob now, but I don’t like most of the store-bought cards. The ones that aren’t too bad are usually $5 or more. So I got up a little early this morning and made this one.
I used the Baby Tees wheel to make the t-shirt onesie. The wheel has several really cute onsies on it. I generally stamp and then cut them out as I don’t care much for the background. I had a basic idea for the card, but I did a quick search on Pinterest (love that site) and found this cute card. I loved the colors she used and I’d just gotten the Simply Stars set and thought it made a cute pattern for a background paper.
I had just enough time to snap a quick picture before I had to go to work. What do you think?
Now for the fun part of this post. I started this blog last year towards the end of January. It’s been such a great experience and I’ve grown a lot through doing it. Over the past year I have made more cards than ever before, pinned just about all of them on Pinterest and then gotten to watch as some of them got pinned and repined and repined again. I’m also honored to be part of the Stamp Review Crew, a group of Stampin Up demonstrators who hold a bi-monthly blog hop. And I was asked to be on a special design team on the Splitcoaststampers site to promote Stampin’ Up products for January through April this year.
But my favorite thing has been the interaction I’ve had with all of you who visit and leave me comments. For that I am very grateful. So I think it’s high time for some blog candy! I have a great prize package for one lucky reader. Just leave a comment on this blog post by midnight Saturday (3/1) telling me your favorite card on my blog and why. (US residents only please). I’ll pick a name at random and get in contact with the winner.
Good luck and thanks!
