Baby Cards

I made a couple of cards for a friend at work that is attending a baby shower next month. I knew in a minute I wanted to do the onesie card for her. I love the look of this card and think it is so darling. Both cards are made with the retired Sale-a-bration set So Many Scallops, bashful blue cardstock and ink, whisper white cardstock, paper from the hostess set paper pack. I also used white satin ribbon and a few navy brads. Hope you all like them!

Another sneak peak

Here is another card made with the new In Colors and new DSP!!! I love the new designer series paper called Bella Rose. It is so beautiful and when you see the rose patterns you are going to die. Of course, I could not use them on this card so you will just have to wait to see it on the next one. The papers are In Colors Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red along with Whisper White. I did throw in a touch of Chocolate Chip and the new level 1 hostess set Deer Friends and current set All Holidays (the words). I just love this hostess set and I see it getting used a lot for treat bags and food gifts this holiday season. It is the same as the Halloween set called Batty For You that I just GOT to have. The Batty For You set has been on the dormant list for this past catalog and I hope that it makes the new catalog because I just know you will all like it as much as you like this set!

New In Colors

Here are the new In Colors that are coming out next month!! This picture is from Dawn's site ( ) and I hope she does not mind me sharing it. I received my sample pack in the mail this past week and have been playing with it today. I have to say that I do like a few of the colors, but I am not too sure about Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango. They seem a little faded to me and I will need some time to get use to them. I am hoping if I see them used in some cards it will change my opinion of it. Below is a card I have made with Kiwi Kiss and a SU set called Regal Rose that is retired. I absolutely love roses and have been hanging on to this set for a while and finally decided to pull it out and use it and I am glad I did!
