For Baby Thomas

Happy Friday, everyone! I happen to know that this card made it to its recipient, so it's safe to post now... it was for one of my newer customer friends who just had her first baby... and oh, is he ever adorable! Cute as a bug, I'd say!

So what better stamp set is there to use than Bugs & Kisses? The cute fuzzy caterpillar is stamped with the new Kiwi Kiss, and I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line him up just right. I'm also really using the new Scallop Edge punch quite a bit - so much easier than the old corner rounder method. The ribbons were attached by tying them around a small paper clip. And nothing finishes a cute card better than a matching envelope! A couple more bugs stamped on the envelope from the same set help to bring it all together and scream "HOMEMADE CARD" from the moment it's plucked from the mailbox!

Enjoy that baby, Hollye!
