NO... not my baby!
My BFF Nancy had her little one today... or should I say... her BIG one! To make a long story short; Nancy's first baby, Hope was born 7 years ago as a micro-preemie. She weighed 1 lbs. 5 oz. (insert gasp here). Today she is a VERY busy first grader. Nancy has been trying to get pregnant without success now for the past 6 years... she had really sort of "given up" and she and her husband had begun the process to be approved for foster care... with the hope of adoption... and them BAM... Prego!
Micheal William was born today... 21 inches long and 9 lbs. 7 oz. and 3 weeks early I might add! He's ginormous! Isn't that so funny! I am so happy and giddy tonight!
Here is the card I created for Nancy's Baby Shower... no stamping actually... but lots of punching and paper piecing.
The Carriage was put together with A Marvy Circle Punch, and the edges were trimmed with Scalloped Scissors. The wheels are a small circle scalloped punch by Martha Stewart Crafts finished with blue brads. I fashioned the handle from an oval punch... punched the small oval first, then the large oval to create an oval frame... than I just cut a notch in it! The design is very simple actually.
The little baby boy has a 1" circle for a face... and the body is a 1 3/8" circle (wearing hand trimmed overalls).
