I’m excited to share this card, it’s a little late but I made it for my FIRST grandchild, I wanted it to be special and I just got so stuck in my brain that I had a hard getting this started. Sooooo when I was coming up with a card for this challenge I used it to get my self rolling on this baby card. This weeks challenge is a design challenge, so I used the following image to inspire me on this card front. I did change the square for a circle but other wise I think I kept it pretty close to the image.
This is the image……
And this is what I came up with…..

So today I have special blanket and pillow set that I made especially for my very first granddaughter, I have made this type of polar fleece knot blanket before, but this time I wanted it to be extra special so I decided to cross stitch a special message.

This is a baby card from my photo stash, it is an oldie but a cutie. Every once in a while I get the urge to watercolour, I’m not great at it but I find that when I use a cute stamp and watercolour paper, I can pull it off ok.
I have been asked to make several cards in the past, but this is a first, I was asked to make a baby card with a shark theme. Hmmmmm I’ve never really thought of a shark theme for a baby card. I was sent a couple of photos of babies room and sure enough it had a shark/ocean theme (there was also a picture of a whale 🐳) sooooooo this is what I came up with, and I have to say it turned out pretty cute.
Here are a few more baby book pages, this book was a gift. The pages are 8×8 and I call it a Growth-Chart book, as I gave the baby a teddy bear also. Pictures are to be taken with the baby and the bear over the course of a year and then the photos show how much baby has grown.
Here are a few more pages from a baby book I had made for family friends. It is the fall and Halloween pages. I call it a growth chart book. I also give a Teddy bear with the book and for a year, every month and holiday the parents take a photo of baby with the bear and then they have a record of how much baby grew in their first year.

I haven’t gone to a baby shower in YEARS and I have had 2 to go to in the last month. Lol. First one was a Sweet little girl (see Baby bunny Card September 28/18), and the second one is an adorable little boy. 🙂
