For baby...

Good morning!
Hope everyone is doing well today. 
Gonna share a card that I made for a co-worker who is expecting her first baby.  She doesn't know the sex of the baby, she's going old school and waiting for the little him or her to arrive which sorta made it a bit difficult for us when it came time for the baby shower.  We were told to keep everything in the greens, yellows or whites which was pretty easy.  So what did I do?  Well I went with the standard diapers (you can never have too many) and handmade card route.  I also gave her a gift certificate to be redeemed once the baby was born for either a handmade altered frame or handmade altered letters for the baby's name. 
I started this card a while back with her in mind.  I purchased an adorable fairy set called 3 baby Fairies from Mo's Digital Pencil and was so happy that I was finally able to use one of the cuties in the set.  Here is Baby Fairy with Buttercup and her fluttery butterfly friend...

Weeee, isn't he/she adorable?  Love how Mo did the wispy hair and those adorable rosy cheeks.  I guess it is sorta leaning towards a girl, but luckily everyone else could see that it could also be for a boy, including the mama-to-be.  Whew!  hahaha.  How about you?  O my, I just want to squeeze those chubby legs!!  (hahaha)  The paper is from another awesome Simple Stories paper pad called Baby Steps.  I loved pairing up those beautiful papers with the dark brown.  

 
Here is a shot of the inside of the card.  Love that dp!  The quilt pattern was perfect!  I used a sentiment from the baby sentiments stamps set by AmyR, the sentiment on the front of the card is from the same stamp set. 


Well my friends, that's all I have to share for now.  Take care and Mahalo for stopping by.  Hoping everyone has a lovely day!

Hugs, 
Leanne
