Bundle of Joy


It’s been a long time since I’ve had a little one in my house, (thank goodness) but I remember how much I loved the adorable baby blankets and quilts. They are so little and so precious.

So, when Andrew told me that a friend and his wife were pregnant I knew exactly how I wanted to lay out the card.

I don’t own any real baby stamps – not sure why, but *shrug * I just don’t. I have one little Studio G set and some baby rub ons. So, I used what I had available to create this card. Part of my challenge to myself this year is to not buy stamps, etc that will not see lots of love.

All of my stitching is a rub on as is the bottle and “heaven sent” in the corner.

After I made this card, Andrew and his girlfriend went to dinner with Andrew’s friend and wife and now they say she might not be pregnant, so I am holding off on sending the card. I am really glad I set this card aside for a day or two to think about before mailing.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!

I would have never guessed that stitching was a rub on. Very realistic.
