Welcome Baby Boy

welcomebabyboymaureenplut

Good morning!  I’ve run out of baby cards so I was determined to make at least 4 cards last night…2 baby boys and 2 baby girls.  I decided to use the Retro Sketch layout and some new paper, Memorable, by My Mind’s Eye.  I used Verve’s Text Objects set for the little boat image and To the Moon for the sentiment.  After paper piecing the sweet little sailboat, I went looking for this adorable anchor button I knew was in my chartreuse button jar!

So I made 2 boy cards at the same time, then switched over to pink for the girl cards…

I think I’ll make a couple more and then start on some wedding cards :)  What are you making lately?  Have a great Tuesday :)

So cute, Maureen! Love how they're all a little different with the beautiful embellishments. I made a few cards on the weekend... the first time in a long time! Had so much fun!

Love that little sailboat - just makes me smile - and all the more with those paper piece sails :) Great use of the sketch and well done on the girl version too.
