Special Occasions

Wedding bells and baby bottles are on the agenda today. Congratulations to my Uncle Dan and my new Aunt Karen on their wedding this past weekend. My card features a Leafy Vine Wreath and Curly Dove from the fabulous Denami Designs. I accented the wreath with baby blue pearls and rhinestones for some added elegance. Best wishes to my cousin Paul and his wife, Amanda, who are expecting their first baby...a girl obviously! I used the adorable Stampin' Up I'm Here stamp set. Since Baby isn't here quite yet, I opted for an Oh Baby! sentiment instead. Isn't the SU Scallop Dots ribbon a must have? I think I bought it in every color they made!

Sweet Peas

Mike and Kristin's Sweet Peas shower was a huge success. Now we are all anxiously awaiting the safe arrival of the twins - but we don't want them to come too soon! Here are some of the goodies the girls and I created for the parents-to-be. I guess we can't take credit for the cake though. My mom and Deerfield's Bakery get the accolades for that! The envelopes for the thank you cards are pre-addressed, stamped and ready to go. For favors, we used Sweet Pea scented hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works. Did you notice that the corsage is made out of teeny tiny baby socks? How cute it that!?!? Enjoy your peace and quiet while you still can, Mike and Kristin!

Penguin Parade

Yesterday was a special baby brother's birthday. Matt really likes penguins, so I used my little penguin friend from Denami Designs to create this fabulous card. Isn't the cookie jar adorable? Just the right size to hold a gift card. Happy Birthday, Matt!
