Hooo Loves You Baby

Hello!  I hope everyone's week is off to a nice start!  I'm happy because I have a day off mid-week to spend with my small man.  It's going to be a free and fun day - the park or playground (weather permitting), the library, a visit to Papa's work...  It was an unexpected day care closing, but luckily I have paid time off available so I could make it a happy thing rather than a hassle!

So today's work day will feel like Friday, even though it's only Tuesday!  Which made me think - Tuesday!  Gosh, I made a card for the Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge and never posted it!  So here it is:

I had a request from my co-worker for her sister-in-law's baby shower this past weekend.  She is expecting a little girl and the nursery theme is an adorable nature based one featuring, you guessed it, owls, from Pottery Barn.  I dug out my What a Hoot stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps for the occasion!  Isn't that the cutest owl ever?  And of course I couldn't resist giving her googly eyes!  The layout is sketch #63 from Try Stampin' On Tuesday and I loved it because it was simple yet could be dressed up.  I used my Lacey Circles Nesties and a Fiskars border punch, added my usual flowers and pearls, and some chipboard letters to spell "baby" (since they were still sitting on my desk from the project I finished the night before).  Papers are Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl from DCWV.

This was one of those cards that once I started it just came together so easily!  I hope you enjoyed viewing it as much as I enjoyed creating it!  I'll be back later in the week with this week's Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Friday Freebie and you never know what else...

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Super cute card. Perfect for a new baby. I absolutely love how you use sketches and interpret them so brilliantly. I've tried to used sketches and always fail miserably. I wanna be like you!

CUTE! Love the googlie eyes, they are the perfect touch. Love those papers, too (hoarding some myself). Enjoy your day off!
