Baby and Congrats Cards

Hey all!  I just wanted to pop by and share a couple of cards that I made for some special people.  

My son's teacher and his wife are expecting their first baby soon and so we're having a little class baby shower tomorrow - big surprise that I offered to make a card.  I used My How You've Grown Who's That Girl because I absolutely adore the image, and I thought this sentiment was totally appropriate for first time parents.  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch and paired it with some MME Stella Rose papers as well as the Stacking Stars and Simply Scallops Die-namics dies.  Since we don't know the gender of the baby, I tried to keep it pretty neutral and these papers made it easy.   

I tried to keep the inside pretty simple since the kids will be signing their names all over.  I used a sentiment from Baby Bump and another Simply Scallops and Stacking Star.  

I also needed to make a Congratulations card for a friend.  Now you may be fooled by the front - but it really is a congrats card - just look at the inside.  I love the sentiments in this Sassy and Sweet stamp set and matching Sweet Stack Labels die set.  I used both animal prints on my layers and paired them with Echo Park Be Mine papers and some black rhinestones.  Since I had so much pattern going on, I kept the embellishments to a minimum.

See - here's the inside - it is a Congratulations card!  I also added a Simply Scallops strip and a flourish from the same Sassy & Sweet set.  

Well I'm off!  I've been a busy beaver creating for the MFT release.  Teasers start tomorrow so be sure to check back!!
