A New Little Someone

Hi friends!  Happy Thursday and welcome to March!  This is the month the twins will be born!  Hooray!  I got a little stamp time and had babies on the brain, so I made this sweet little baby card (mostly) following this week's Mojo Monday 230 sketch.


The papers are from the Be Amazing collection by My Mind's Eye.  I had a little gingham stuffed elephant my mom made me as a child, so every time I use this little elephant from To the Moon, I like to paper piece him on some sort of pattern.  Today it's a little grey polka dot print.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from the Hope Blooms set and it is stamped in the center of the frame from Twitterpated and cut out with the coordinating Hearts & Swirls Frame Die.  The little star border punch I got on clearance many moons ago and I think this is the first time I've used it.  Love how it looks.

I added a little texture with my favorite swirls and stars embossing folder and finished off with a little baja breeze pleated ribbon.  A simple little card, but I can see myself making it again and again in pink... and green... and yellow.. for all my friends who have recently found out they're expecting.  I must have started a trend!  LOL

Well, that's all for today! Hope you have a spectacular day and thanks so much for stopping by!

I imagine I have a punch or two that I haven't used yet, so I can relate! The stars are the perfect touch to your sweet card. I love To The Moon, it is my favorite set for baby cards! Can't wait for the boys to arrive, and I'm sure your eager too! :) Praying for a safe and smooth delivery!

Polka dotted Emery is soooo cute :) Darling card. Great news that your friends are expecting too! The perfect set up for play dates and mommies getting together for some sanity time :)

Hang in there the last month - soon you won't have to worry about your belly getting in the way and you'll be able to see your toes again soon :)
