Baby cards

I have had a few people ask me about Evernote since I mentioned it in yesterday's post.   Evernote is a site where you can store things and get your things organized - like dies, stamps, recipes, etc.   It is a great place to organize your stamps, tag them with key words, sort them into categories (like Current Stamps, Retired Stamps, Sale-a-Bration, etc.) and include a picture of the stamps in the set.  I use the Basic Plan which is free.  The free version limits how many notes you can add each month but it works for me.  I finished inputting my current stamps today.  I'm going to start on my Paper Pumpkin stamps next! 

Ok - enough business!  Here are a few cards I've made during the lock down!!

My nephew and his wife are expecting a little girl in early May.  I went to a baby shower for her a couple of weeks ago.  These are the cards I made to go with my gift and one to go on Ashley's gift since she was unable to attend.

This card is one of the reasons I've started using Evernote again.  I searched and searched for a stamp to use for a baby and was coming up empty.  Finally I found this cute kangaroo among my Paper Pumpkin stamps!   The hearts are from Stitched Be Mine dies - one of my favorites!!

I don't know what this fold is called - maybe just a fancy fold!

In searching for baby stamps, I remembered  the Owl Punch!  These little dresses are punched from it.  Then I added little straps to hang them on the pink twine!  If you own this punch, don't ever give it away!!  There are so many things you can make with it - it's a shame it is retired.

Hello from Maryland!

Hello!  I am blogging to you today from Ashley's house in Maryland with her cat, Bogart, sitting in my lap wanting to be right in the middle of whatever I am doing!

I have had a great visit so far and still a week to go to make memories.  My sister, Marianne, and I flew to Baltimore on Friday.  Ashley met us at the airport and we went to the Guinness Brewery nearby.  We took a tour of the brewery and had lunch before heading home to Ashley's house where we just chilled for the evening.  We've been to the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland so it was fun to visit this new one.

I'll share more pictures in the next day or so.  I am going to make a few cards while Ashley is at work today but I wanted to share this cute one first!  This is the first card I've made using Special Someone stamp set but not the last.  Isn't that little raccoon adorable??  I have the matching dies for this set so it makes it easy to cut out with no fussy cutting.  The tag came from one of the Paper Pumpkin sets and worked great for this birthday card.
