Baby Shower thank you

These are the cards I made as "thank you's" for the baby shower that my husband's department at work threw for us.  The heart is a stamp by Hero Arts and the "thanks" stamp is from Inkadinkado- this one actually says "my way of saying thanks" but I cut it out to make it say just "thanks". Unfortunately, I've had the baby feet stamp for a while and it just has generic copyright stickers on it so I have no idea the brand. The pink polka dotted paper (which I LOVE!) is from the Abbey Road by My Mind's Eye, and the Green plaid paper is from a Die Cuts with a View Stack. I used the scallop border punch from Stampin' Up! to add a little extra to the edge of the pink polka dots. Then I just inked all the edges (minus the white paper) and threw it all together. Super simple- hope they like it!

"Hello There" card

My first attempt at sewing! It's fun, but I need to master the sewing in a straight line thing. The punch at the bottom is a Martha Stewart punch (forgive me I've forgotten the name). The Flowers were stamped with Stampin' Up's "Island Blossoms" set, I just stamped a couple of different images and layered them with pop dots. The "Hello There" is a sentiment from the "Cheap Talk" set.

Little Miracle Layout

This was my first layout ever to be created based on a sketch. The sketch was the first Challenge sketch on the Scrapmaster's Paradise forum. It just so happened that the pictures and papers I wanted to use matched up fairly closely to the colors she chose for the sketch design (not necessarily intentional but it works!)
The "little" is cut with the Cricut Cartridge Graphically Speaking, while "miracle" was cut with A Child's Year. The journaling block at the bottom was cut with the Storybook cartridge. This layout challenged me in more ways than just using a sketch- I had never used the A Child's Year cartridge or the Storybook cartridge before and wanted to challenge myself to find something to use from those as well.

Birdy Thank you Card

This is another card (and the envelope to go with it) using the Stampin Up "Cheep Talk" Set. Pretty simple, but super cute!
