Sweet Baby Girl

If you've been here before, you know that many, many weeks ago I submitted some cards for the Page Plans design team. I didn't make the team, but they DID ask me to be a guest designer for the month of May!! ME!!! I was so thrilled and still find it hard to believe!! It was really cool seeing my card posted someplace else!! Very surreal!! I still get this really big grin on my face when I think about it - hubby will catch me and ask what I'm smiling about. He doesn't get it though...he just kinda nods and walks away.

Here is the sketch for this week, created by Renee. I came home on Thursday and saw the sketch after getting the baby settled and the dogs petted and the hubby cuddled. I needed to have it back to Chris and Lesli by 7 pm on Friday! As you know, I create cards that I need and my good friend just found out she is having a girl (after 3 boys, this surprise baby is such a treat!) and I bought some little scrapbook things to give her but I need a card to go with it. I went in to gather supplies and thought, "I can't make another baby card to post on my blog" so I tried to come up with something else - but it just wouldn't happen. Not with my time constraints. I think this is a new thing for me to work on. Make a card --- JUST BECAUSE!!
Here's my card:

I don't remember who makes the DP, it was in a big ol' stack. The felt ribbon is Rob & Bob, the letter stickers and small pearls were $pot from Target and the baby buggy I bought off of ebay ages ago!

Page Plans posts a new sketch every Sunday. So you have plenty of time to create something with this sketch. If you do, be sure to link it up over on the Page Plans blog so I can check it out!!
Make it a beautiful day!!

P.S. Those baby shoes in the photo were found at an estate sale...marked for $2, I paid $1. Aren't they just precious!! Hubby thought I bought them for D. to wear - ha! I wish his feet were still that small! But no, I bought them to use as "fluff" in photos (since baby cards are my most favorite to make). Although I am sad that they were at the sale. Nobody wanted those little shoes. I would love to have my baby shoes. That poor mama. I'm telling D. he has to hang onto the things I save for him. I'm such a sucker for family heirlooms. He has this music box horse on his crib that used to be his daddy's. I have lots of other little bits and pieces around too. They don't have any real monetary value but the emotional value is what matters to me.
