SweetPea

Next weekend is a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law's baby. We are all excited because we haven't had a baby on that side of the family in five years. (sorry for the so-so quality photo--still perfecting the photo area in this new house)

Sweet Pea

The head and first two peas are a 1-1/4" circle punch, the small pea is a 1" punch. The hat is a 1/4" punch, a 1-3/8" punch and a small oval from my Coluzzle set. The ears are a handheld oval punch and the hair is a flower punch. The details are made with chalk, white gel pen, and a blue marker. This design is based on a previous design of mine: Baby Boy Congrats. U have foolishly sold my spiral and drop punch in a garage sale so I couldn't add those details.

I hope my in-laws like it (to go with our group gift) if not, they can go to Hallmark, and I will have a baby boy card for my stash.

Edited to add: I just realized that I did Sharon of No Time To Stamp's Simply Stamping Challenge. Cool!!

Thanks for stopping by here again, today!!
