Baby Gifts Galore


Earlier this week, we received 2 fabulous baby gifts: a glider and a Beaba baby food maker! You know what that means - I need to whip up some thank you cards! I've had this adorable Whipper Snapper stamp sitting on the edge of my desk for awhile now, so I was happy to finally ink it up. It's called Baby Gifts Galore. I ordered it shortly after I found out we were expecting knowing that it would come in useful :) The image was super fun to color up. I paper pieced the buggy bottom on, raised the canopy with a dimensional and then added touches of sparkles all over the image using Stardust Stickles. I sewed around the So Saffron piece with my Janome Sew Mini. Baby cards always look sweet with a little sewing! The sentiment is also from Whipper Snapper and comes from the Baby On Board cling set. Isn't the layout cute? It comes from the Friday Sketchers - be sure to pop over there and play along! Hope you're enjoying you weekend!!!

FYI: The oranges really do match in real life, the glitter just made it appear darker in the photo :)
