Wee Baby Girl!

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

    This weekend I won’t be getting much crafting done as we have Emily’s class bunny staying for the weekend. He goes back to school on Monday and then is taken home by another child next weekend, then on the afternoon of the 29th of May, he’s officially a member of our family! Emily’s teacher is retiring and has asked a couple times if we would adopt him (after me telling her that she was lucky to be getting him back when he stayed at our house the past couple times.) I just had to share a picture of Scooter. 🙂 I did a photo shoot with him a couple months ago and just have to find where I “hid” the photos. They’re in a totally safe place! Scooter is really cool and we already love him to bits! So, you’ll be hearing a lot more about Scooter adventures in the coming months. I’ll also introduce you to my other animals. Yup, plural!

   The nurse at my daughter’s school recently had a baby girl. My daughter just loves everyone at her school, so of course I had to make her a card. For this one I chose to color up Wee One from WeeStamps! These images have always intimidated me. So many little things to color that could go wrong. Eek! I decided to try it out and see how it went. I really like the outcome!

This image is adorable and can be used for both a boy or girl! I love Sylvia’s images! They’re all so adorable and have such character! Plus the little surprises. My favorite part is the little bird. I just had to color him up like a little bluebird (a very bright bluebird)!

I love this sentiment! I just screams baby girl! Now I don’t normally use the same sentiment again, but this one I think I’m going to have to keep handy.


    I do have to say, Nurse Crystal LOVED the card! I also got a couple more of the teachers to check out my blog after she showed it to them. 🙂 Always a plus! Highlight of giving a card is when the person didn’t know I made cards and says “You made that?!?!” I just love that feeling! Makes me feel talented and creative all at the same time.



Why is she showing us books???
Okay, these are my “go to” books for sentiments for cards and scrapbook pages (Well, I haven’t actually scrapbooked in over 5 years, so we’ll just say cards.) I pulled the sentiment for this card out of the book on the right. I keep these two books within easy reach, above my computer, to pull down whenever I need help with a sentiment for a card.
Just thought I’d share 2 of my favorite “tools”. No, the company didn’t ask me to write this or give me the books for free. My Mom actually bought them for me a LONG time ago and I have kept them handy ever since.
