Happy Thursday, everyone!  A couple cards today; the Less Is More challenge this week is baby cards, so I made a simple one:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Zoo Babies Stampin Up Baby Card

I hope that big bow doesn’t disqualify it, but it was so cute, I couldn’t help adding it to my Zoo Babies elephant!  The bow was made with the Envelope Punch Board, the video can be found here.  I did make my tail a little longer than she recommended, but it’s entirely your choice!  The gingham is a digital paper, and the sentiment is from the retired SU set, Sweet Little Sentiments.

My next one is for The Kraft Journal’s challenge, the Winter Blues.  I used some Crafty Secret digital papers from their Retro Christmas line on a Crumb Cake card base:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Crafty Secrets Digital Christmas

I can’t remember where the sentiment is from (also digital), and the Crumb Cake snowflake is from Taylored Expressions, run through the Big Shot with an Adhesive sheet and glittered up with some Martha Stewart Antique Silver glitter.  Some twine and narrow gingham finished it off!


Enjoy your day!

We had about 8” of snow on Tuesday, and Cassidy couldn’t wait to go outside to play in it!  Unfortunately, it was about 5 degrees out, so our playtime was short:




She needs a little practice on those snow angels!

That baby card is adorable. Love the mix of gingham and polka dots. Lovely Christmas card too :) Kids and snow - a perfect combination :)

Linda said...

Yea you got some snow for Cassidy! I love the angel!
Your cards are wonderful. I watched a video on how to do the bow with the envelope punch. I did break down and bought one. I love that baby card. So sweet.

What a sweet baby card. Love the bow. The kraft and blue paper is gorgeous and ribbon and bow just set it off. Love that someone appreciates the snow. I'm pretty over it and don't want to be out if I can help it. She's having such a good time but you are right, it is so very cold.

Both of your cards are wonderful! I love the baby one with the big pink bow! The winter blue one is so pretty too! The gold snowflake just sets it off! Stay warm in those cold temps!

Great cards! I think your bow has the perfect tails on it. Shorter would be too short I think. As for snow angels, let's face it, they're tough to get up from. :) Cute!

sweet cards.....adorable little one in the snow...

Looks like fun Cassidy...and you'll get the snow angels figured out soon I'm sure.
We had -39 degrees Celsius here today with the windchill so not much angel making happening around here:(
LeAnne this baby card is adorable. I love the gingham paper and the polka dot bow is perfect with it.
