Wishing You Baby Happiness


One of the girls in my office is leaving work to have a baby ... now I have made new baby cards in the past, but have never had occasion to make a card for leaving to have a baby before. However Emma is a lovely girl so I thought I would have a go. This was a real challenge actually, as I don't have any specific images or wordings for this particular life-event; so I had to think a bit wider.

I thought that this cute LotV teddy holding a balloon and flowers would be suitable; and I found a sentiment in my stash to wish someone happiness ... finally I decided to tie the colour shcheme in to the fact that she is expecting a little boy - here's the result.


Stamps: LotV "Teddy With Balloon"; "For You Circular Sentiments", "Sentiment Tags";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Forever Friends;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon and heart gems from Hobbycraft; lace and cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl; round gems by Papermania;
Tools: Labels Four nestabilities; Cheery Lynn "lace deco" corner die.
