Round 1 Baby Thank Yous

Well I am finally getting around to sending out some thank you notes that are only about 3 weeks late. I usually get them made before the baby is born but with everything that happened this time around, there was not any stamping time. It is so great to finally be stamping again. I really like this layout that I found in my little idea book, I had noted that the layout came from Kim's Blog but I don't know which Kim or her blog address.


I know that this card is made out of a lot of retired items but I just love my two retired baby sets, I'm Here and Buggies and Booties and the Thank you sentiment just fits too perfectly to not use. This card is so simple that it was easy to mass produce.

Stamps: I'm Here, Much Appreciated

Ink: Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant

Paper: Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White

Accessories: Retired SU! Grosgrain and Organdy Ribbons, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, Stampin' Dimensionals

Tools: Spiral Punch

Christmas Angels

Finally I have made it back to stamping!  I have finally been able to reclaim some resemblance to my former life.  I appreciate all of the kind encouraging words and thought I have received from so many of you.  For those who have been asking I had a healthy baby girl 3 weeks ago by an emergency C-section.  Emmalyn is a beautiful healthy baby and she actually sleeps pretty good at night, now if I could only get my toddler to sleep through the night..... Here is a picture of my 2 littlest girls, aren't they sweet.  I am really surprised at how well Hannah has adjusted to not being the baby anymore, and she just adores her little sister.

So as I was trying to sit down and get the inspiration to start my overdue thank you cards for baby items I just couldn't come up with anything that looked decent so I put them away and made some Christmas gift tags instead to get me started.  (I still cant believe it has been so long since I have stamped anything.)

I had bookmarked these angels from Betty's blog a while back and decided that this would be a good place to start to get my mojo back.  They are really easy a quick to whip out.  I used the Bella Rose DSP on my angels.


Now I have to make birthday party invitations and my thank you notes and today is already completely booked with no stamping time left.  It is that busy time of year but I still love it! 

Paper:  Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, Blush Blossom, Pink Pirouette
