Is there anything like a new baby?! After having four of my own over the last nine years, I have more of an appreciation for the babies of others! I just love a good baby snuggle! Baby cards are so fun to make and I find myself reminiscing about when the boys were babies like DD is now & then I have to try so hard not to get too nostalgic! There is nothing like looking through their baby albums and suddenly feeling the tears welling up in my eyes as I realize just how quickly they are growing up! Take DS1, for example…
Try as hard as we might, there is no slowing time and I am so thankful for a camera and journal that help me remember a few of the details of those precious days!
The new year brings with it at least five friends & family members (so far) that will be welcoming new bundles of joy! I can’t wait to hear the exciting news for each one! Baby cards are on my list of projects to create and I’m sharing one with you today.

I stamped and fussy cut the little onesie. The little elephant is a separate stamp image and it was colored with Copic markers, including a sparkly Spica pen. The onesie was then popped up with foam dots, as was the entire main panel. I just love soft purple for baby cards! Some of the babies scheduled to arrive already have a pink or blue label, but some will be a surprise so I need to have a few unisex cards ready!
After a cup of hot coffee with a cinnamon bagel, I think I am ready to tackle the day. It’s a grey one here and the landscape is looking rather hazy off in the distance. An icy night is in the forecast, so we’ll see if there will be school in the morning! It’s the last day of school before winter break, so if it is cancelled, the boys will get an extra day at home! DD has her wellness check up in the morning, so hoping the roads aren’t too bad!
