Welcome, Little Baby

And here we are friends; it's Monday once again! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am not sure what's going on, but I'm really getting into the baby cards these days. It's hard to resist that adorable elephant from the Rock-A-Bye Baby Click Simple template. I re-sized him to fit nicely on a cute baby card:

Who can resist an adorable pink elephant with heart shaped polka dots?!? Ack! I turned him into a wooden rolling toy...whatever those are called. See the little twine pull in the back? I added two buttons for "wheels" and a black adhesive rhinestone for an eye. And I have to say, I just adore the newly reformulated Sweet Blush ink on Sweet Blush cardstock. It's just so pinky perfect! And I love it paired with Lavender Moon. I think this might be the first time I've used those two together:

I'll warn you now: I made another card in the same color scheme, only with a different image from the same template collection. I'll share it in a few days. I gotta space them out or it looks like I have no originality...making the "same" card twice...lol! And since I don't have any babies to give these away to, they are up in my Etsy shop. Hopefully they will find a nice home!

And thanks, Jenn, for commenting on my new blog layout and header. I did some sprucing up this weekend. I wasn't sure how my husband would take being on my blog, but he actually surprised me and said he likes it. Followed up by, "Shouldn't you ask people before you put their pictures on your blog?" LOL!
