Sweet Baby Bear UN-challenge

I had so much fun making this card. I’m entering it in FOUR challenges! I titled this UN-challenge, though, because it all came together so quickly and sweetly. When I read the Global Design Project #GDP123 – New Beginnings, I thought a baby card would be good. Then I read the TGIF Color Challenge #TGIFC145 – Blushing Bride, Powder Pink, and Sweet Sugarplum, I just knew the baby card would be great. Then I saw the Freshly Made Sketches FMS322 and knew it would be the perfect layout. And to round it all out is Watercooler Wednesday WWC155 – Anything Goes. I don’t think I’ve ever had a card come together as swiftly as this one. The color palette is adorable and I had to go with the Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon (Sale-a-Bration) because pink and gray are gorgeous together! I won’t bore you with how many pink and gray outfits I had back in 5th grade. Thanks for letting me play along!

Baby Bear for Autum Kaye

We went to visit my newest little niece yesterday – Autum Kaye. Just 10 days old! What a sweet baby!  Here’s the congratulations card I made the new parents. I am so pleased with it – Baby Bear is simply darling and perfect to welcome a new little life. I have my friend Stephanie to thank for the idea of making a square card. I hadn’t made one in quite a while, but she recently made a baby card that was square…inspiration! And a big thank you to Stampin’ Up for making the bow in the Holly Berry Builder punch match the Baby Bear bow.

Foxy Friends Duet

These two adorable cards you see below are all the fault of my niece, Kalyn. See…I had looked once or twice at the A Little Foxy Suite (pages 56-57 in the Annual Catalog). I thought to myself, “Yeah. That’s super cute. I just don’t think I would use it since my kids are all too old for little critters.” Each year, I make a stack of Christmas cards for Kalyn to send out.  Well. Wouldn’t you know. We were happily looking at the new Holiday Catalog and she decides she wants a card made with the fox in the Host set Cozy Critters. Now, you know me. I’m like the whole “Give a Pig a Pancake”, “Give a Mouse a Cookie”, “Take a Moose to the Movies” kind of chick. Here’s how it goes: Get the Cozy Critters stamp set…gotta have the matching Fox Builder punch…which means I need to get the Foxy Friends bundle of the punch and the Foxy Friends stamp set…which means I also need the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack. Oh yeah. Stampin’ Up sure knows what they’re doing!  So, without further adieu, here are a couple of cute Birthday cards that, dare I say it, I would actually enjoy getting myself as an adult!  Oh, Kalyn. Thank you for being my excuse!
