Sweet Baby Boy card


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?

What a sweet card, that image so so perfect for a baby card and the colors are perfect with the stripes. You are like me, I love to have most of the shopping done, packages mailed, etc done early so I can enjoy December. Let's see tradition from my childhood, I would say everyone has their own series of ornaments to hang and we add to it every year. Then when my kids are out on their own, they will take the ornaments and hang them on their tree, hopefully with memories. TFS your tradition, love it.
