Hello Baby

I made a baby card with the final stamp that I hadn't used from A Slice of Life.  Remember, I told you in this post that I would make a card with the onesie stamp and share it. 

 I had a piece of this beautiful lace trim left over from Christmas so I threaded a piece of pink grosgrain through the top and adhered it to the card.  This is a pretty simple card.  I'm stuck using pink and green I think!  That is one of my favorite color combos.

Here's a picture of my friends at our luncheon on Thursday.  We had such a good visit.  We met at noon and didn't leave the restaurant until 2 pm!  We were all on the Newcomer's Board 2 years ago and got along so well plus we got things done in the Club.  I was the only crazy one who stayed another year.  What a difference the past year's Board members were versus the six of us!  Just suffice it to say, I'm glad I'm done!

A Slice of Life

A Slice of Life is a Hostess gift stamp set featured in the Occasions Mini that I earned last month.  It is a cute set that can be used all through the year for birthday wishes, congratulations, welcome to a new baby, etc.  So, if you book a workshop, you too can earn this set for FREE!!  I made a card with all the stamps in the set except one which is a baby onesies' stamp.  I will use it later and share with you.

 This card is one I will be using soon for a birthday card to a special friend in Texas.  I cut the cake out separately, paper-pieced it and raised it up with dimensionals.
Cardstock:  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink Bashful Blue, Whisper White, scraps of various SU DSP; Accessories:  2 1/2" Circle Punch; Black Marker; Sizzix Flower Fold Die; Big Shot; SU Markers; Sizzix Tasteful Trim Die.
 I haven't decided the sentiment to use with this card but I will stamp it in the right corner when I do.  I paper-pieced the vase.
Cardstock:  Pear Pizazz; Bashful Blue; Whisper White; SU DSP; Accessories:  Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon; SU Scallop Punch; SU Markers (Pr. in Pink & Concord Crush).
My upcoming trip to Ireland was the inspiration for this card!  I don't drink coffee but I may develop a fondness for Irish coffee soon!  I used a lot of punches on this one!
Cardstock:  Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Pear Pizazz, SU DSP, Chocolate Chip / Accessories:  Photo Corner Punch; Boho Blossoms Punch; green brads; Modern Label Punch, Large Oval Punch; Scallop Edge Punch; 1 3/4" Circle Punch; 2 3/8" Scallop Punch; Stamps:  A Slice of Life and Occasional Quotes.
