Sweet Little Baby

 Well, they're done! I have all of the cards made, packaged and delivered to my friend!  I am feeling really good about my accomplishment; and the best part of all of it....I have 20 cards of my OWN all ready to go! Do you know how long it has been since I have had such a large stash of cards to pick from?'s been a while!   I will admit that I was really losing steam toward the end. I had intentionally left the baby cards until the end because they are some of my favorite to make. Big mistake....I just wanted to be done!

As you can see, I didn't make the boy and girl design exactly the same.  I made the girl one with a little more detail.  That's just kindof how girls are, huh?  Simple boys...complicated girls.   Anyway...I used the coordinating die cuts with this stamp set as I have with every other card. Die-cuts to the rescue!  I just recently bought this set even though it is an older PTI set. I have always wanted it, but never ended up by getting it. I can't tell you how many times it has been in my "cart" but always gets removed.

 The papers for both cards are from a super old My Mind's Eye slab that I got on clearance years ago at Hobby Lobby. I don't know what I will do when the papers are all gone!  I hadn't printed out any more sketches, so I just used a simple design.  The little elephant was diecut out of white, but then I paper pieced it with coordinating paper so that I didn't have to color it.

 The baby boy card is pretty simple, but I think it is cute.  I used copic markers to color the sailboat since it was small. I was tempted to paper piece this as well, but I think the pattern would have been lost in the small spaces.
 A little tag, wool diecut ric-rac and buttons finish off the design.  I can't believe I am done! I will share the last design with you later. It is the simplest of the bunch, but I had better share it anyway.  I hope you all had a good Easter. Thanks for fluttering by!

I have really enjoyed reading your posts and seeing all the cards you created. I know how much work it is because a few years ago I made sets (3 of them) for my son 's teacher and two aides. What a job! Halfway through, I wad really regretting it but I finished and they turned out really well. My sets were a lot simpler than yours though, these were fabulous!
