Hello Baby


Hello, Baby, I'm back!!  I feel like it's been forever since I had time to get into the stamps and do something creative.  I have been very busy over the past week.  My dear father-in-law passed away last week, and we had so many activities to deal with, but also family that came from out of town and stayed with us for a week.  The fact that he would have turned 94 years old on Saturday says that he lived a long, happy life, and we could all celebrate that.  It was nice to take the time to look at old photos, tell stories, and visit with family and friends.  I am glad that things are winding down now, and I finally feel like I have my life back on track. 
So, while my granddaughter napped this afternoon, and my husband was out running errands, I took a little time for myself.  We have a craft sale coming up next week, and I knew that we needed to make some cards for the sale that fit certain occasions.  I decided to start with baby cards today.  I decided that I would make something generic, or gender neutral. 
I used a layout that I found at the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #203, and the colors from the photo inspiration at Just Us Girls Challenge #181.  I think the card turned out cute, and took no time at all to make a few.  I used the stamp sets Baby Bundle, Sweet essentials, and Stacks of Wishes.  The paper is from my retired stash in shades of So Saffron, Certainly Celery, and Pumpkin Pie. 
I hope to spend time this evening making more cards, so I hope you stop back tomorrow, and see some more.
