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.

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!
