Emily found this old baby announcement card lying around and decided that she wanted it to be her birthday party invitation. I told her that was silly because it is a birth announcement I said read it it says its a girl. but she wanted the pretty pink dress. so I said I would try to make her one that was close she said no I want it exactly like this one. Well mine isn't exact but it is pretty close and she had to admit she liked mine better.


This is my version of the card.

This is how I made the little dress.

choo choo


I wanted to make a circus train but my animal set is a little big for the train, but I think it looks OK they are just big animals.

fore you


I made a golf card like this a long time ago but when they came out with this golf guy in the mini catalog I knew I had to use him somehow with it so I put him on the inside.

stampin mom and daughters: Happy Birthday

stampin mom and daughters: Happy Birthday

giraffe


This is a close up of the giraffe I used the wide oval punch for his body the boho flower for his tail lots of circle punches the legs and neck are just strips of paper.

Safari decor

OK my baby who is almost 6 is just now almost too big for her toddler bed. I know but she is very small for her age. So she wants a whole new room decor along with her big girl bed. She said "Mom I'm too big for Dora or princesses I wan an African safari room." She has picked out sheets and blankets with different animal stripes and spots. So she wanted us to make pictures for the wall. So this was our first one. The giraffe was hard for me took lots of trial and error, but I think I got it.
