Oh Baby!

Hey there!
It's baby card time! I know so many people that will be having babies within the next 6 months, so I've got to get my baby card stash up to par. I have had this card floating around in my head for quite some time. I have finally let it out of my head. I think it tured out cute. The whole idea is that the third little quail is the baby- a boy- and the boy will be the third child in this family. Get it? It is hard to see in the picture, but the 'baby' quail is paper pieced on blue paper. I used the coming-out-of-retirement, Baja Breeze and the soon-to-come-out-brand-new, Marina Mist (the darker blue). I just love this color combo. I think it will be a perminent scheme in my collection of cards. To get my ribbon like that, I just sewed a strip down the middle with my sewing machine, and folded it over as I went. Thanks for stopping by!

paper: baja breeze, marina mist, whisper white
ink: basic black, versamark
stamps: happy together, dot, dot, dot, well scripted
other: baja breeze ribbon, vintage button


  1. Awww, i love it!!! Very cute! And I will certainly be copying it.
    Yes, I understood that the third one was the new baby, and I think the new mom-to-be-again will too!
