Oh Baby!


Well, this was the little card I came up with for my friend's baby shower yesterday. To steal the words of bloggin' bud Jennifer Buck, it's "easy peasy lemon squeezy!" :-) I just used my Nesties for the shapes on the tag. The image is actually a Stampin' Up image from forever ago. It was part of a set of nine or ten little mini images for all different occasions. Sadly, this is the only third time I have used that set! With this card, however, I think I could get a lot more mileage just by using the tag and ribbon style. I colored my little onsie with water color pencils and added a little glitter thanks to my clear Copic Spica pen. Don't you just love those little safety pins? I think those were put out by Making Memories. They are all in pastel colors which make them PERFECT for baby cards!

Here's a close up of the little tag showing the pin and the sheer ribbon....

Well, I am about to go off to my work cave (that's what I sometimes call my bedroom) I have some writing assignments for the magazine I work for so I'll lock myself in my room with my laptop and hopefully nail them out! Writers block can stink, so wish me luck!! :-)

Until tomorrow!!
