I'm Here

I was going through the keepsake box I have for my toddler, and I came across a stack of about five of these birth announcements I made to send to friends and family when he was born. I made 100 of them total (crazy, I know!), and apparently decided that he should have all of the leftovers when he's an adult. hee hee. Now that I am thinking clearly again, I decided to leave one in there for him, and pull the others out to use as needed. And it just so happens that one is needed! One of my neighbors recently welcomed their first child - a boy - into the world, so I thought I'd stop by tomorrow with this card and a bag of newborn diapers that Jack grew out of too soon.

Since I cased this card (everything but the color blue - she had a girl), I never posted it to my SCS gallery, and I didn't have a blog at the time. The original artist of the card is SCS user Stampin3 (Karen Foltz - click to get to her blog) and you can see her version of this specific card in her SCS gallery HERE if you're interested. I even did my inside similar to hers. I just love that card!

Anyhow, since I haven't had a chance to make anything new since that last card I posted, I thought I'd share this one today. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Stamps: I'm Here (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Going Grey
Paper: Bliss Blue, Whisper White, Going Grey
Other: Light Blue Narrow Organdy Ribbon (SU!), Light Blue Eyelet (Making Memories)

omgoodness - I had forgotten I made them (Mackenzie just turned 4). Thanks so much for the compliment/CASE! Yours for your little guy turned out great as well!! I don't remember how many I made, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't anywhere near 100. :)

Thanks again!!

This is great, girl. And I know about hoarding. I finally got tired of it and cleaned out my closets this summer... boy, do I have issues!

How adorable! I am going to have to case this if you don't mind. My friend just recently had a baby and the card I made for her quickly yesterday I'm not happy with.
