It is that time again… OK it is only my second time proudly designing a project for FCCB as a design team member! This project was so fun for me, since I wanted to do a baby card and the theme of the shower is “Clothesline”!
Nothing shouts sunny days to me than a line of freshly washed laundry being sun kissed dry by the sun!
Now, head on over and check out all the sunny inspriation and join this week’s challenge!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “sunny days” pie with me!

I have a friend down from” Canada eh?” that is 20 weeks preggers and it is her first baby! She is quite the fashionista and is one of those people who looks amazing ALL the time! They don’t know the gender of the baby yet, but I wanted to get her something that I found useful when my little one’s were brand new bundles of joy. I found a zebra print Swaddle Me, baby swaddle with the velcro on it and used that as my inspiration for her quickly made card.

I ordered the My Pink Stamper Birthday Doodle Kit during her release of the new product. I have NEVER done the coloring stamping thing before and had a lot of fun doing it. I whipped out this tag in just a matter of minutes as I was RUSHING, RUSHING, RUSHING out the door to the party all the while being able to coordinate the tag to the gift bag.

Stamp and Ink – My Pink Stamper Birthday Doodle Kit
I am in the midst of a HUGE and I mean HUGE project. . . one of those projects that I am trying to keep a happy heart through, but keep asking myself, why did I get myself into. In the end I know I will be happy I did do it, but right now I am in my own mental anguish (kind of like being at mile 15 of a marathon). What I am doing is making handmade scrapbooks (no pictures, just the base) for 14 moms in the co-op preschool I attend with my kiddos. I did have some time last week to whip together a card for one of my hub’s fellow engineer co-worker’s sweet little girl’s second birthday.
There is a movement around here where many moms from all types of social economic backgrounds have come together on Facebook and use that platform to swap, sell or look for items (mainly toys, baby gear and clothes) that we all have instead of buying new. Since it is via Facebook and you have to be from the area and be invited to the group, it is much easier and safer than Craigslist. I know I have padded my crafting mad money selling my beloved Gymboree collection that my youngest no longer fits into.
I found someone who was selling a huge bag of dress up cloths (Disney Princess) for only $10 that were in great condition. I packaged up the clothes and added this card for a little gift! This idea was right up this family’s alley since they are very aware of the environment and love recycling through goods.
Thanks for sharing a piece of “recycled gifts can be a great idea” pie with me!

Hi everyone! Outside of dealing with terrible allergies or maybe it is a cold this weekend, I was able to hop along on Friday with My Pink Stamper’s Pinkalicious Blog Hop. The challenge gave me a kick-start on my Mother’s Day project, since it was to make something for Mother’s Day. So that is what I did!
If you have not noticed, I have been on a kick of making paper flowers using strips of double-sided scrapbook paper. So I scaled it down and incorporated it onto a card!
Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “getting ready for Mother’s Day with the thanks to a April MPS blog hop challenge” pie with me.
