I was invited to a baby shower last week and realized I was out of baby cards! I have been having so much fun making Halloween and Christmas cards that I have let my card box get a little low. Friday night at Craft Night I took a bunch of images to color so that I could have a selection of cards when the need arose. I know a few people expecting babies in the near future and I knew I would be needing several baby cards soon. I have a few more of these stamped, I think next I am going to make one for a little girl. This image is from Sweet Pea Stamps and is from the Lisa Victoria line. As soon as I saw this image I knew it would make great baby cards. That little dragon curled up with his little bear is just the cutest! Image is colored with Copic markers and I used a Sakura glitter pen to accent some on the clouds. The brads and the stars are from Making Memories and those letters have been in my stash for a little while and I can't remember who made them.
My tree is up and decorated, the shopping almost finished, presents are wrapped and under the tree. I try and do a lot of my shopping early so that I can relax as it gets closer to Christmas. I have one more major gift to buy and then a couple of odds and ends, mostly stocking stuffers. One tradition that I brought to our marriage was little wrapped gifts in our stockings. I loved that when I was little, mixed in with the fruit, nuts and candy we always had little small gifts to open. Often it was a pair of earrings. some lip gloss or other trinket and always looked forward to that. I told Kip that and he always includes small wrapped gifts in my stocking and I make sure he has a couple too. What tradition have you carried over from your childhood?
