It's a GIRL!

Hello! I am so excited because my baby sister is having her second daughter today!!! She was scheduled for a c-section this afternoon so by the time you are reading this--I will be an aunt (again!) EDIT: Sweet baby Carolyn (!) was born today. She weighed in at 8 lbs and 12 oz! So excited to meet her. Congrats Clare and Dave!

My daughter Lauren and I spent the morning shopping for her new cousin!!!
Since I knew the blog hop for Asela's First Christmas set was tonight---I decided to get the new baby card ready to go! (It is only fitting that I used a bear on my sister's card because we used to call her "Clare Bear" growing up!)

As you can see--I used the bear in the set to make a new baby card. You can even mask off the hat but I think it looks so cute with the hat on so I just made it pink. (You can color it blue for a baby boy!)

I used pure luxury cardstock for the image and framed the designer paper with some tan leather and All Spruced up.

Materials used: First Christmas (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; rubon-American Crafts (IM phrases); cardstock-pure luxury white, all spruced up, tan leather (Gina K Designs); designer paper-SEI; slit punch (SU!); corner punch (SU!); pom pom ribbon (Jo Anns); sewing machine.

I am working on another sample with this set but didn't have the time to get it done. Ah....life sometimes gets in the way! Will post in the near future!

Wanna see more designs with this beautiful set? Stop in at Asela Hopkin's blog (our featured Illustrator tonight) and see what she has prepared for us.

Then, check out the design team blogs:
