Bunnies, Babies and Buttons!


Finally finished this card today! Its been "in process" on my craft table for over a week now. I made it for my daughter who is expecting her 4th child, due the middle of May. She and hubby have 3 boys already so I am REALLY hoping for a girl this time! They don't like to find out the sex until the baby is born so we don't know that it is a girl....it just HAS to be! I know I'll be scrambling to make a blue card if its NOT a girl!

I followed a sketch for this one:
 from
http://trystampinontuesday.blogspot.com - #162 Bunnies and Chicks


I also followed the requirements for:
http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com - #167 Flowers and Flourishes
http://diecuttindivas.blogspot.com - #161 Tic-Tac-Toe (bunny, pastels, ribbon)
http://craft-deebowz.blogspot.com - April: Anything Goes + handmade bow

I really like how the paper-pieced buggy turned out!
Here is my list of supplies used:
Stamps - Stampabilities "Bunny Buggie" (colored with colored pencils); "It's a Girl" & "Congratulations"  are generic
Inks - Studio G "Pink", Memento "Tuxedo Black", & "Bamboo"
Dies - Spellbinders "Rose Creations", "Standard Circles Lg.", TH Sizzix "Tattered Floral Garland"
Punch - Martha Stewart "Doily Lace"
Card stock - Imaginesce "Baby Powder", Paper Studio "Heavy Wt. White" & pink flourish & green polka dot
Pearls, buttons and ribbon are from my stash

Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate your visits and comments!

Hi Sandy! I'm Sheri's Mom. Made it home to Oregon just before more snow hit. My shipped box of card making items just arrived, along w/your blog address. I do hope you get this message. Your cards are gorgeous and I will enjoy checking in on your blog now & then. I'm still too tired to try to figure out how to "join" to follow you but I will try soon. My email address is linbill2@charter.net. I'm sending this as Anonymous only because I don't have anything else set up, no Google acct., etc. I'm computer tech challenged. Congrats on the expected arrival!

All of your cards are gorgeous but I especially love the baby card w/the bunnies... The coloring/shading is excellent! When my son was born, my Grandma wanted a girl and her concession to the idea of a boy was to buy a BLUE girl's baby dress...which I later used when Sheri was born. I sure am hoping you get to give your daughter this beautiful PINK card when this baby arrives. It deserves to be framed!

Sheri's Mom, Linda
