FMS44 Sweet Baby


When I first saw the Freshly Made Sketches sketch from Jen for this week, I thought “No way!”  

Even now, I realize I did not put the sentiment in the right place!!!  Oh dear, what a mess I am!  Anyway, since I needed a baby congrats card, I pulled out some of the Birds of a Feather DP from my recent DP share and went to work:


I know the proportions of my circles are a little off….but I am going with it!  I cut out one of the little birds from the DP to carry the banner from Itty Bitty Banners, and I added a little Raspberry Ripple heart under a clear button atop a chevron-embossed circular panel.  Even though it’s for a little boy, I think it’s okay to have that little bit of raspberry in there too…..hope the mom agrees!


Cassidy was sick yesterday---I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say, we both needed baths and a change of clothes in the middle of the day.   There is nothing like Mommy to help you feel better:


Have a blessed day!


  1. Nice baby card. Hope Cassidy is feelig much much better today.

  2. Adorable - both the card and mommy & daughter. I love the colors you chose for the card.

  3. Oh this is so so beautiful LeAnne, those papers and your die cuts and embossing--perfect! Nothing like a mommies love.

  4. Oh getting all those immunities built up is a hard road for the little ones. Love the picture and the card!

  5. LeAnne his is such an adorable card, I love that patterned paper and those circle die cuts are so fantastic! The embossing detail is so perfect. There is nothing like a mother`s love when you are not feeling well.

  6. What an adorable card! I love that you tweeked the design to make it your own.

    Hope the young miss feels back to her fab self soon!!

  7. I had the same reaction when I saw this sketch, LOL! But as usual, you totally rocked it! I really love that Chevron EF and can't wait to get it!

    I hope that Cassidy is feeling better soon!

  8. Oh poor Cassidy - she looks done in for sure.
    This is really cute paper on this card and that little bird is so sweet.

  9. Oh, sweet baby...look at her with mom. What a hard day for all when they are sick!! Love this card and I think it is such an awesome use of the sketch. Hope little Cassidy is back to herself now. Glad to see you this week.
