I had a lot of fun playing with this set. The thing I find easiest for me, to get the creative juices flowing, is a good stamp set and a good sketch. We have two babies expected this summer, two of my nieces are pregnant, due within a month of each other! We know for sure that one is going to be a girl, the other one is keeping it a secret. :) The sketch I found at the Card Pattern blog, sketch 110. Its hard to spot in this photo, but I used a Cuttlebug edge folder to impress 'with love' at the very bottom of the card.





For this second one, I wanted general, bright happy colors that are sort of universal, whether boy or girl. I used the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely papers and a very simple layout. I botched the inside sentiment but not so badly that I won't be sending this card out. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
