I hope you like babies!!!


I am working on invites for two baby showers(my sister's and my SIL.) I know one is a girl. The other we won't know until April. Here is the first attempt at a shower invite. I love paper piecing and thought a paper pieced purse and headband would be perfect!! Well the headband and purse are A LOT smaller than I thought!!! Good for one card, bad for 30!! I used the cuttlebug folder, stylized flowers on the very vanilla and sponged with River Rock, that may make it to another round!! I like this color combo a lot, not as much as sahara sand and soft sky, but I was originally thinking of using the River Rock DSP. That may show up in another attempt as well!! I am liking this set, she's all that, a lot more than I thought I would!! It's fun and PRECUT which is great!! I cut off the sentiment and put it on the edge of the block so it has even more versatility!! I love using the white gel pen for faux stitching, again good for one, bad for 30!!

Stamps: She's all that, All year Cheer II. Cardstock and Ink, Soft sky, river rock, very vanilla. Accessories: Cuttlebug, sponges, signo white gel pen, antique brad, vanilla taffeta ribbon, soft sky double stitched ribbon, Scallop, tag corner, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 circle punches. Techniques: paper piecing, sponging.

If you have a shower invite you love, post a link so we can all check it out! I need all the inspiration I can get!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
