I hope you are having a great day. I spent yesterday making baby cards!
WHAT?! You may be wondering……………..
I guess you could say I have babies on the brain. NO I’m not having baby fever-but EVERYONE else is.
Just about every couple Jay and I know is popping one out-LOL!
Some are over-due as we speak, and their bundle’s of love should be arriving SOON-like today!
Its so weird because I am SO past that stage in our lives. I feel like everyone is playing catch up. It’s good for us though. We have alot going on, and my children are at a point where I can do the things “I” want to do, for myself-OK that sounded wicked selfish, but not intended that way. Let’s face it, we all need some ” my time” for mommy fun.
I never have ANY baby cards on hand, and wanted to make some special one’s for those time’s I am in a CRUNCH-but you really should have a card.
I like to keep my baby cards soft, sweet and SIMPLE.
So I created 3 of the same today. I hope you like them, and gain some inspiration from them.
I used my favorite baby pieces if inspiration. It basically came from my friend Erin, who was being induced yesterday (Wed at 7:30 pm) saying-I think I have everything except 0-3 and 3-6 month onsie’s.
I could NOT believe my ears! No ONESIE’s? WHAT? That is a very important piece of a baby wardrobe.
So, sort of as a “joke”, since I went on a spiel about onesie’s and their importance, I figured it would be cute to make her a card for their baby-SHAPED like a onesie.
Wait till you see the way I package the onesie’s I am bringing to the hospital!!! If it works the way I hope-its a MUST do for ANY new baby. Cross your finger’s as I am on a mission today to package them, and will share them asap.
Now the other thing I used, that is a favorite for me, is a Stork!
See that stork image in the onesie? Its from the New! All Occasion set by LAD called Petite Phrases.
I LOVE storks! They are so cute!!! They are also great for adoption cards and what not. Or just a pregnancy congrats. Love them
For my cards I wanted a SOFT look-so I stamped with Sahara Sand ink, then colored with markers. The Stork on the girl onesie is the only one with glitter on the stork.
Its a Girl
Its a Boy
and……….Its a ?
So what do you think? Cute? I was very pleased with the outcome.
I made it basically from SU! punches! I sorta just figured it out, and they only took 15 minutes to design and create 3! Now that is cool.
TUTORIAL CAN BE FOUND———–> HERE
The fold is at the top.
the head opening and legs are done using 1 3/8 circle punch 😀
I also used my SU! Scallop punch for the “trim”. I would first punch my 1/2 circle then punch out the scallop border.
My Scor-Pal made the lie at the bottom where the “snaps” are. Otherwise know as Making Memories button brads 😀
DONE! Simple Simon.
Speaking of babies…………..
Alexa-icky nose, taking a huge amount of antibiotics, and still recovering from roid-rage, but all is well. She really doesn’t complain-as long as she gets her way. She has this “attitude” that KILLS me lately. I don’t think I had that attitude at her age. But I guess she is entitled.
Noah-he is great. A very good little boy. He has learned how to take Daisy out to do her duty, and enjoys helping with her care the most. He plays with her alot though-out the day.
Amber-she is also great. Nothing new to report. Loves school and is quite the little singer these days. Maybe she will be the future American Idol! LOL!
Daisy- she is going to the vet 8:30 am to get fixed :C Poor baby.
My hubby-we are praying we get a sitter soon! We haven’t had a date in forever :C We are pretty stressed. Excited LOST starts tonight!!! YEAH!
I appreciate all the well wishes.
That’s it for me for today.
I’m off and running.
I’ll check in later.
