If you read my blog you already know that I just had another granddaughter named Emory. A couple of weeks ago we went down to meet her. As a grandmother, can I just say, she is one of the cutest babies. When I was there she was sleeping pretty well so that her parents got a few hours sleep in between feedings. After I left, Emory started giving her parents a hard time. Of course, I think it is because she misses me. Her parents just roll their eyes.
I made this card with Emory in mind. Her parents decorated her room in coral colors so I thought it was appropriate to make a card using Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. I used the stamp set called Something For Baby. It has a set of matching Framelits called Baby’s First. This is one of those sets that you will keep forever. Babies are always being born and it will never go out of style.

This is the second card we made at my monthly Stamp Club meeting. I decided to take a break from Christmas cards with the group. Some of the ladies in the group have children, grandchildren or expecting either so I thought it would be a good time to use this set. The best thing is it has a set of matching Framelits called Baby’s First Framelits. You can buy both in a bundle and save 15%!
The two panels were made using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and were tied together using Crushed Curry Bakers Twine. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Petite Pairs.
I am sure none of you are surprised about finally seeing a baby card. After all, I have babies on the brain right now. One of the best baby sets we have available is called Something For Baby. The best part of this stamp set is it has matching Framelits called Baby’s First and both of them are going to be in the new catalog!
Of course, since I just had to post a baby card, I feel like I must also post a Madelyn picture. Here she is at three weeks old. By the way, someone asked me if she was going to get her picture taken every week. As far as I am concerned, the answer better be yes! If I can’t see her every day, then I want lots of pictures and unfortunately, if I get more pictures so do you! Feel free to skip the pictures of Madelyn. Just don’t tell me you do! 🙂
Last week I was invited to a baby shower for the son and daughter in law of a good friend. Her son is the same age as my kids. It is hard to believe these kids are old enough to be having babies. It doesn’t seem that long ago that there were little kids running around in the park playing tag.
This couple lives in Chicago and flew here so I didn’t want to give them something big that they would have to carry back on the plane. Of course, the perfect answer is a gift card. I didn’t want to just give them a card with the gift card inside so I decided to make another box using the Gift Card Envelope & Trim Thinlits Die (that is a mouthful!). I used the Something for Baby stamp set with the matching Framelits called Baby’s First to decorate the top of the box. Here is a picture of the top:
