Baby Boy

We're planning a baby shower for a coworker who's having his first baby and a friend asked me to make her a couple of cards.  In making the first card, I realized just how limited my baby boy selection was!  So after making the first card, I set off to a couple of my local scrapbook stores and found some great goodies.  I found some sweet Teresa Collins double sided paper and I was finally able to get my hands on the super cute Teddybella from Stamping Bella.  It was the last one too!! Here's the my first card:

The image is Willow with Toddler from Whiff of Joy.  I colored her with copics.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye and Martha Stewart.  As usual, I finished off the inside with coordinating papers.

Here's my second card and the result of a very satisfactory shopping trip :)

Bella and her shopping bags were colored with copics.  The strips on the green bag and the dots on the blue bag were added with the copic blender.  Her shirt was paper pieced and a second layer was added for her tummy using a pop dot.  After cutting the image with my spellbinder nestie, I softly sponged around the edges with summer sky memento ink.  The card needed a bit of pizzaz, so I added a "b" tag on the corner using memento summer sky ink and my bling bet from MFT.
Now that I've got my creative mojo going, I'm hoping to spend some serious crafting time during the weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by!
