Hush Little Baby

Is there anything better than a baby? Well I don't know about you, but I don't think so. My best friend's son and his girlfriend just had a baby boy not long ago and I was invited tonight to meet him. Uhhh ohhh...what to do? I didn't have a I went searching and I found the most adorable little free image at T.L.C. Creations. I mean just look at him...couldn't you just pick him up and cuddle him?

So my first dilema was...what colors should I go with. I didn't want to go with the traditional soft blues or greens...I wanted something that would pop! Then I remembered that I had picked up some Thomas the Tank paper for making a card for them...duh! And it has the most wonderful colors of blues, yellow and red!
And SU had the perfect paper to match the yellow with it's Daffodil Delight! Sorry I don't know who the dp is by...bought it at Bartell's Scrapbooking store. The image was colored with my SU watercolors and I used blue pastels from SU for surrounding my image (I know you can't see it, but it is there lol). The fancy little edge on the pillow case was colored with blue glitter pen. The It's a Boy stamp, by Hero Arts, was stamped with SU More Mustard. The ribbons were from Dollar Giant and so were the little feet eyelets. I raided my dd stash for the sequins and the small pearls were a gift from Theresa.

What a lovely card Char. And I agree sometimes you don't want to go with the typical! How you remember where you got things is beyond me. I have stuff from 8 or 9 years ago and well my memory stinks for stuff like that. LOL You did a great job.
