Baby, We've Grown

We have the sweetest neighbours next door to us. When our old neighbours moved away, we were a little apprehensive about who would move in, but we hit the jackpot.  Our new neighbours are a young family originally from Hungary. They are quiet, friendly and very willing to help out. Their family dog is a collie - you know, a Lassie dog.  Does anyone even remember Lassie?

They had a little 2 year old when they first moved in, but just recently their little family has grown to include a baby boy. We wanted to get something for the baby, so I designed this card to go with it. It features the Baby, We've Grown Stamp Set, which is retiring and only available until June 2.

  • Baby, We've Grown is a cute stamp set for baby cards, introduced in the 2014 Occasions catalogue and carried over in the Annual Catalogue. Right now the Wood Mount set is 20% off. 
  • I stamped the sentiment right on the Lullaby DSP (which is also retiring) with Memento Ink and did a quick coloring job with my Coastal Cabana Stampin' Right Marker. The 2013-15 In Colour Stampin' Write Markers are also on the Retiring List and are on sale for 40% off.
  • The little shoes were coloured with Pool Party and Coastal Cabana in keeping with the card base and back panel in this largely monochromatic card.
  • The Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine will be retiring along with all the 2013-15 In Colour versions and all colours are 50% off.
  • I added three Pool Party Candy Dots on the upper left of the oval for balance in the design.
And Tuesday means new Weekly Deals:

  1. Hi Heather! Great card!!
    Just wanted to let you know that I think there's an error in your post. The catalog items are only available until June 2nd not July. I'm sure everyone knows but just in case...


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
