more baby cards...

It seems kind of silly to make cards for various holidays for my baby boy (5 months old today!!) but I can't help it. I made a quick one for him for Valentine's day -I felt the "you stole my heart" sentiment was only fitting, no?

I also made him an Easter card using SU's A Good Egg set... I flocked up that little chick, and used the shimmery paper for his egg. and then for some reason, i put ANOTHER egg on the card. Ahhh whatever :P I used my fave blue argyley paper for hte sky, and an egg wrap from last year's Eggcoutrements set for the grass.

WHen you have a baby, people like to give you (the baby) stuff, and I have made at least 40 thank you cards since he's been born. That doesn't even cover the shower cards I made in the fall!! What can I say, we're blessed.
First I made about 30 of these:
then I ran out of the brown/blue DSP, so I switched to some of these...

But sometimes you get a gift that warrants a special card all it's own. And that gift came from J's friends in northern NB. They sent us an email shortly after Joel was born, saying that they'd ordered something for us from Chapters, and it was being delivered directly to us. Cool, awesome, you didn't have to, etc. So no problem. We get a parcel card to pick something up at the post office, so we attempt to pick it up on our way home from an appointment one day. Well. They got us (Joel) a wagon. Ever seen a box for a wagon? Ya, huge. Must've taken us 20 minutes to figure out how to fit the three of us, his stroller & the wagon into our vehicle. So I decided I'd make them a card with a wagon on it to thank them for this awesome gift. I used my MFT dies for the grass & clouds, and tried to model my wagon as closely as possible to the real wagon.. the body's a bit high, but eh. A quick "Thank you" on the front, and inside I wrote "for the sweet ride" :)

Last baby card.. is a welcome new baby card I made using the Little Me set by Unity that I posted about yesterday. I love love love this card & set. And it's a true equal-opportunity card. There are products from 4 different companies on it! Unity for the Little Me and Moonbeams & Heartstrings (in background) sets, My Minds Eye DSP, Lawn Fawn for the polaroid stamp (from Say Cheese), and SU Short & Sweet set, Wild Wasabi & Glossy White CS & awesome WW seam binding ribbon. I love love love this card. It was a bit fussy, because the dad is actually looking in the other direction, so I had to make sure to not stamp his eyes, and I kinda cut off one of his arms, but all in all, I love it.
