Happy 2013! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and new year holiday. We enjoyed lots of family time but suffered through a nasty head cold. School is back in for the little guy and we are getting back into a routine. I sure have been in my craft room and have a few things to show you over the next few days. In the new year I have a few friends expecting new babies and my first project is a hat and card. Below is the inspiration for my project...the bedding for the new little one.
Here is the hat. I have used the pattern from this blog for all the baby hats I make...and I make a lot of hats. this one is for a baby girl so I added a flower.
And here is the card to go with it.
The base is Daffodil Delight embossed with the chevron folder. Then a layer of basic grey (quickly becoming a new favorite color of mine) and a layer of basic grey DSP. Some ribbon and some buttons finish the embellishments and the stamped images are from the new Spring Catalog. The set is called That's the Ticket.
I hope you've enjoyed this project. I could easily see this card as a gender neutral baby card. Oh and before you get jealous of my ribbon and DSP stash I have a secret for you....product shares. I totally take advantage of when other demos offer product shares it is a great way to sample new things or just have a little bit of everything...come on who doesn't want it all. Right now I know of four demos having product shares for US folks plus each of these ladies have great blogs. Check out Erica, Sarah, Angie or Patty.
