Something NEW

Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made a short time ago after receiving my order from the Dies R Us Store.  After every long, cold winter there is always a flourish of babies born so I want to be ready and ordered a few new baby themed dies.

 Did these cards turn out cute or what??  LOL!

I just thought this giraffe die was adorable and couldn't wait to create with him (or her).

I've turned to my embossing folders for the backgrounds.
Quick, easy and always adds wonderful texture to such a simple creation.
I also have quite a selection of ribbons since joining the ribbon club at Really Reasonable Ribbons a few years back!  In fact, they are such beautiful ribbon packs I'm afraid I've kind of turned into a ribbon hoarder at this point!   Yikes!

Okay, these are my favoritest baby cards I've ever seen. They're cute, sweet, and not difficult to make so it doesn't break your heart if someone throws it away (hehehhe)! First, the giraffe is fabulous and I'm going to go and buy him due to seeing these cards. I have a cubby buddy at work who adores giraffes. Next, the quilt embossing folder is freaking awesome. I want one of those, too, for other cards that have an image with a quilt on them. Where'd you get that one...if you can remember? And the embellishments are perfect. These cards I adore! Thanks for joining us at the Cutie Pie challenge! --Gail
