Why are baby things SO cute?

A dear friend of mine that I met the seven years ago when my oldest started preschool is pregnant with her third child. She and I have been pregnant at the same time and both sets of our kids are just weeks apart. She has girls though. Well, this time around I'm not pregnant at the same time as her. (phew).In fact, I won't even be playing catch up with her! 🙂

Her baby shower is this weekend so I wanted to make her a little something.

Which brings me to the title of this post? What is it about baby things? I have this thing for onesies. And well baby feet. A while back I got this Accucut onesie die. Isn't it cute? And again, I made a set of 8 thank you cards & envelopes housed in the Accucut portfolio. I even used the onesie as a tag for the outside (where I tell her "sorry, by design, I'm not prego with you! HA!).

See that little teddy bear on the front? That's piece of a May Arts Ribbon! I'm telling you, baby stuff is cute. Glad she's having the baby 😉

This set happens also fits the Moxie Fab challenge: "The Card Sets Challenge". Please join me in playing along!

Treat Yourself.

Recently a friend of mine did something for me that was above and beyond. I wanted to thank her so I got her a Sonic giftcard. Do you have Sonic where you are? America's drive-in… gotta love it. I especially love their happy hours from 2-4 everyday for their 1/2 prices drinks! I'm a vanilla diet coke gal. I know many that love their Cherry Limeade… but give me a vanilla diet coke any day! Of course, my kids always wants a watermelon slush…

So, I made a gift card holder. The card and envelope are an accucut die, called gift card & envelope #1. This die may actually be the one that I use the most. The Taylored Expressions Chillax came in handy for the images. And the sentiment is from Stampendous… "Treat yourself". Isn't that perfect?

I used a clear sakura glaze pen over the ice cubes to make them slick.

Hope you have a great day. Treat yourself!
