Mommy to Be


I wanted to take a moment to thank Shannon for sending me this set (check out her blog - she makes some seriously ca-ute creations)!! I'm going to put it to great use over the next few months. I just love the sweet simple images in this set. They are perfect for paper piecing too! I have 3 friends who are currently expecting and due later this year. So excited for all of them!!! With it being Mother's Day weekend, I decided to break it in and make a card for a special someone who has waited a very long time to become a mommy. I thought this image would be perfect for her. I paper pieced the shirt and skirt on. Isn't that paper perfect for a twill skirt? I followed Mojo 137 for the layout. It's definitely a keeper. I love how the little squares turned out. They were cut and embossed using Nesties so they look like little blocks stacked on top of one another. I stuck the safety pin in with the ribbon just to give it that extra little baby look. Thanks for stopping by!!
