Baby Shower Gift


Hi friends! I hope you're all having a great week! I'm rather ready for the weekend already. :) Anyone else feel that way? I was a little sick on Wednesday morning so hopefully today will be better. But the kids seem to be doing good so that makes me happy.

I'm so behind on blogging lately. I have projects just sitting on my computer ready to be edited and blogged but I just haven't gotten around to it. It's odd but I guess I just need to prioritize and things are going ok at home so that will just have to be how it goes.

Alright, last month we had a baby shower for a friend of mine. She just had a baby girl last week and she's adorable. I am showing you the gift I made for her. We didn't have a lot of extra money last month with Christmas and our trip so I knew I needed to make a gift. When I had Parker, I received MANY wonderful gifts. One of my favorites came from my pal Shannon. As part of a giant purely fabulous gift set that Shannon sent me, there was a box of thank you notes. And let me tell you, it was such a relief to have them. To just be able to take one out and send off a thank you. It was FABULOUS! So, that's what I decided to make.

I made two different styles of cards. Mostly because I didn't have enough paper to make all of them the same. I was actually able to make all these cards in just a few hours. Plus as I was leaving, I decided that I wanted to make a matching bag. I was able to throw this together REALLY quickly which I love!

Card Details:
Card Stock: pink
Patterned Paper: Stampin Up
Stamp: Taylored Expressions Hangin' Out
Misc: Fiskars border punch, SU ribbon, Nesties circles, Nesties Labels 1
