New Baby

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I've been away because I had a baby.  My due date was November 18th, but the baby didn't arrive until November 28th.  During those 10 days I was occupied with getting some last minute things done around the house and finishing my Christmas cards.  I actually finished my cards the same day that my water broke.  Anyways, since the baby arrived, I've been busy being a new mom.  I did have a few cards made prior to the arrival, so I will share them with you.

For those of you that might be wondering, I had a baby boy.  His name is Caius Alexander and he was 7 lbs, 4 oz.  And he's a sweetie.

In honor of the new arrival, I have a couple baby cards.

This is a pocket card that I made as a baby announcement card.  I will be slipping a picture of the little man with his birth informaiton into the pocket.  I made these prior to his arrival, so I picked gender neutral colors. 

This is a super simple and sweet card that's perfect as a Congratulations card.

This card uses the same layout as the previous card, but I tweaked it a little.  I added more layers and a tag.  
I used the Soft Subtle DSP for all three cards and I also used cardstock from the Soft Subtle family.

I used the following stamp sets:
                 Teddy and Trains
                 Animal Stories
                 Introducing  (retired)

These stamps are perfect for all baby related projects.  I will be using them when I make a scrapbook of my baby.

Take care and Merry Christmas
