Baby, Don't Cry


Needed a baby card for work.  I always add the little pamphlet stitching on the top for these cards so I can add extra pages inside for signing.  This is a CASE but I can't remember from where, it's been so long.

Calendar Girl

I always like to have a few baby cards on the ready.  This was made from Clearly Besotted's Hooray die.  The sequins for the shaker is left over from a work baby shower.  The little onesie was a donation.  Love the simplicity of this card.

Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear



I'm recycling the Christmas gift tags.  The sentiment is from another recycled Christmas card.  The DP is from Pink Paisley's Merry and Bright pack.  Background paper is Old Olive and Brushed Gold. This will make a great card to send to my young niece.

Thanks Kindly


I'm still showing off samples from the last year.  I was always asked to make the plant picks to put in the flowers to give out to the school volunteers at the yearly Volunteer Tea.  I always try to make these out of scraps since it is a donation to the school.  I think this is my fifth year and every year I try to make it different.
