Little Ones, Part III

I hope you aren't bored with these baby cards yet! I promise this is my last batch, at least for a while. I am, however, working on a card for a baby shower but that one won't be part of this collection. For these six I varied the sentiments again and also used some different colours. I really love the one that is framed with cord and wondered why I didn't think of that before. It was the last one and I didn't have a ribbon that matched so I decided to go natural. I'll have to remember that for future additions to this collection. There are a lot of images and sentiments from the Fiskars Baby stamp set that I've never used, one of them being the cute as a button sentiment. It's attached to a button which I decided to cut and separate the button from the sentiment. Now I can use the sentiment on its own because I really like it and I can always use a real button above it if I wanted to. I left the speech bubble in the peek-a-boo card blank so the user can write in their own little baby babble. These cards were so fun to make and easy, too! In fact, they were addictive which is why I kept making them. :)

My son loves the crying baby in the blue sleeper. Everytime I showed it to him, he'd crack a huge smile and point at it. None of the other images got that reaction from him. It was too cute!
