Purpley Baby

More baby cards in a pretty familiar layout. It's just so darn easy, but I love how it turns out. That onesie is just perfect, don't you think? I made a set of 10 cards for my friend who just had her first girl, and she is all about the purple.

Alright, just shoot me now. I made a Christmas card in October. What is the world coming to? I have a very staunch rule that there should be no Christmas until after Thanksgiving, and here I am breaking it. Alas, Claire's poinsettia just got to me. Isn't it beautiful? Once again, instead of coloring the whole thing, I paper-pieced it and just colored in some shadows with the T1 Copic. Sneaky, huh?

Thankful for You

I am in L-O-V-E with PTI's Wreath for All Seasons. I just keep staring at that berry wreath. The images are just perfect. Here is my first card made with the set. Hopefully I'll stop staring and make some more.

Inspired by Your Example

So I intended on posting this for the Waltzingmouse Blog Hop, and I completely missed it. Whoops. Anyway, I made this for a friend of mine who really is a wonderful example to me. Now if I could just get it together and actually mail it...

Just Hatched

I made this card (and several others just like it--I loved it that much) for a friend of mine who just had her first baby girl. I'm so happy for her! You can barely see, but I used the Polka Dot Basics 2 Impression Plate on the Dark Chocolate background paper--I flipped the paper around so the dots are embossed. Love this image and sentiment for a new baby! The card is 4 1/4" square.
