Sweet Pea

I missed out on Jen's SFYTT two weeks ago and I really wanted to give it a try. I needed to make a baby card for one of my dearest friends who is expecting any day now! The outfit that I got her said "Sweet Pea" on the front, so I knew that the pea pod image from Baby Button Bits would be perfect. I paired it with some of the new October Afternoon papers that I got last week and wanted to use.
The actual "Sweet Pea" sentiment is from the SU! set called "Little Angel". My mom got it a while ago and lent it to me, so I was excited to actually get to use it. The "Cute and Cuddly" sentiment is also from the Baby Button Bits set. I just rounded the acrylic stamp onto my block so that it would fit nicely into the circle.








I packaged it up into a Kraft box and added a tag ( I didn't have a chance to photograph it) but I used the Papertrey "Little Sweet Pea" sentiment on that. I couldn't resist adding a jar of Gerber peas along with her gift. I am *all about* working the theme! LOL!


Rowan turned 3 Months old on the 20th, so it was time for a photo shoot. Unfortunately, the day got away from me and it was getting too dark for me to use any natural light. I pulled up all the shades in my bedroom to get any light I could, but it got too dark too fast. I used my little brain and had my daughter bring up one of my OTT lights from my desk and I got to work. Rowan wasn't in any kind of smiling mood, but I really like what I captured. I love those little lips and chubby cheeks. He had finally had it by the time I was done, so I did get some adorable "sad" pictures with his little lip turned down; the one that breaks my heart, but is precious and part of him, all the same. I will have to share those later. I will be back tomorrow with a "current" SFYTT! LOL!


Thanks for fluttering by!!!

So cute. I love the card. It is always fun to use new stamps and combine them with other companies as well.
Rowan is so precious. I love how you do his hair. My son doesn't have any hair on top to do that. All of his is in the back.

Love this card!! Very cute!! I like how you combined all the patterns and yet didn't overwhelm the card!

Very cute picture of Rowan too!

Beautiful card, I'm sure your niece LOVED it! Rowan is ADORABLE, his facial expressons make me just want to hold him and talk to him. I'm a mom, grandma, and great-grandma so you can imagine how I feel about your photos. TFS.

The greens, the buttons and that little pea pod make your card just plain the cutest.
