welcome baby girl!

please click on images to enlarge

hi everyone! hope this post finds you well! i wanted to quickly share a card i made for my daughter's music teacher this week! she's expecting her first baby any day now! so exciting! of course i quickly reached for the darling MFT a la móde set Oh Baby!, some girly girly paper & got to work!
i stamped, embossed and colored the image onX-press It blending cardstock if you haven't tried this paper yet- you HAVE to get some- i so love it for copic markers! i stamped & colored the big bear twice & popped it up on some of Jody's awesome boosters (note to self: i need to order more asap!) i used some sweet twine & a couple of buttons from my stash to finish it off & i stitched on this one too (note the zig zag on the polka dot paper)- i'm still so scared when i sew on my panels but i still give it a go every now & then!

inside the card was finished off with some of the scraps and i cut my stamps apart a bit so i could use the 'So' from one sentiment with the 'Happy for You' from another:

My daughter & i bought some receiving blankets and a washable Gund bear for the baby and wrapped it up with this card on top of the package! it really turned out cute! we are so excited for baby Kate to arrive! i sure hope to see you at the MFT release party tonight on Splitcoast at 5pmEST-it's gonna be tons of fun!!! i still have a few things to upload & share so i'll try to get to them soon!
