For My Great Niece

Good Morning,

I made this little onsie card for my new niece almost two months ago now. I need to get it in the mail.
The sweet little babe arrived 7 weeks early but is doing very well. She is just gorgeous.

To make this I used standard instruction from the web for the onsie. It's basically a folded rectangle. Then you make the triangular cuts for the for the sides and armholes. The legs and neck edge are done with a circle punch. The pockets and oval punch or in this case I used my spellbinders and cut the ends off.  The lacey edges on the neck and legs were a circle scallop punch with the centre cut out.
I did had a bib to the onsie cause I thought it was cute. That was done with spellbinders. If you have a cricut it would be very easy to create the circles too. Placed eyelets  to look like snaps and a little stitching.

Well I really must get this project into the mail. Fortunately the outfits I've purchased she won't be growing out of them anytime soon.
To my Canadian family and friends...Enjoy your long week-end!

My Little Black Dress


Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I've been away for awhile. I was away for a little while visiting the Grandchildren. That was so much fun. Xavier celebrated his fourth birthday and I got to see Korben start crawling. I must admit I had a hand in that one. lol After I returned home I had a knee surgery but it is doing very well.

This is just a sweet little card made it Stampin' Up supplies. Basically it is a die cut. The bodice was stamped and the rest cuttlebugged.
Hope to be back soon with another card.
