New Year…….New Beginnings

Exciting news came my way last week, three of the ladies on our Facebook group, Stampin Scrappin Roadtrippers, will become grandmothers around the same time in the spring. When I heard that I decided it would be nice to be prepared. Here is the first of the baby cards I am making. Guess I had better make equal amount of pink ones too. I don’t have a lot of baby stamps but i do have a couple of House Mouse and Happy Hoppers.

I used my new decorative oval for the first time, oh what a challenge, does anyone know an easy way to get the cardstock out of the die?

Your image and your die piece go so well together. Very sweet and delicate.

Sue said...

Yep, run the die through your die cutting machine using wax paper. Die and scraps will come out much easier. Your card is so pretty. Soft and sweet like a baby. New Mom is going to love getting this one. Thanks for sharing it with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Good luck with the prizes, so many great items.

Hugs
