Hello Baby!

Hello stamping blog!  Long time no post.  One of my New Years goals was to make at least five cards a week and send at least three.  Uhhhh, yeah.  Still trying to work on that one...

But, my friend Amy gave me a nudge when she said she needed three cards and asked if I could make them.  Sure thing!

She needed two gender neutral baby cards and a masculine birthday card.  I knew the baby cards would be cake because, well, I have a go to card for babies.  I simply adore the giraffe from "Wild About You" and love to use it.  I also love this very simple layout and just change it up a bit based on what is needed. 

This card uses So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue and the retired DSP "Cutie Pie".

I also needed two "girlie" baby cards for a friend and a cousin.  I am in love with brown and pink paired together for a little girl and pulled out Early Espresso and Pink Pirouette and some Pink Pirouette DSP. 

The sweet "Hello Baby" sentiment comes from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and finishes off the card. 

I suppose I should branch out with regards to baby cards, but when I can put something this cute together so quickly, how can I resist?
