A New Little Someone

My friend had her baby yesterday! I already made a card for her, but I didn't have a chance to get or make a "coordinating" gift. I decided to quickly make her a new one to match the "Gymboree" gift box that her gift is in. I usually end up by wrapping the gift boxes, but it came with such a cute ribbon and sticker for the top, that I decided to leave it as it is.

I liked the panels from yesterday's card so much that I decided to make panels again. I stamped the three colors using white ink and Polka Dot Basics. The gift box has polka dots all over it, so I thought that I would continue with the theme.

The outfit that I am giving her has a cake or cupcake on the shirt, so I couldn't resist using the cupcake image from Baby Button Bits. I know that I promised that I would try not to use it, but it was the perfect fit. I colored the image using copic and prismacolor markers. I added some tinsel glitter for fun!

I had already made the little snail image, so I decided to add that to the inside. It is simply stamped in white and then colored using copic markers. I added all of the buttons using glue dots.

The hospital is less than five minutes away, so I am going to give her a call and see if I can come and see her new little bundle. My other friend had her baby last Monday and I was able to go see him on Thursday. It really made me realize how big my little one is getting!

I am hoping to get a new banner made this week so stay tuned for that! I am also hoping to get some Teacher Appreciation gifts done like I mentioned yesterday! Thanks for fluttering by!
