a gift for baby

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was FABulous, got to see a lot of my sweet little neices and watch the 4 kiddos play together which always makes my heart happy :) Also got a lot of Stamping in with some delightful ladies which always helps to put a smile on my face!

A lot of what I created were cards working ahead for Design Teams I am on so will not be able to share right away but stay tuned... 

I did however make the time to make a Baby card for good friends of ours who welcomed their first child a couple of months ago :) We are all East Coasters (the sweet mama is married in) so I thought I would so something a little different than a typical baby card to make it more personal to them.
