Baby Thank You Gift Set

We're having a baby shower for a co-worker tomorrow - they chose not to find out if they are having a boy or a girl, so I tried to use rather neutral colors. I guess they're a bit more feminine than masculine, but I hoped by adding the green dew drops that would help??

I did several with groovy guava as the base color and a few with apricot appeal. Both are topped with white card stock. I used my Big Shot and 2 small Cuttlebug embossing folders - one says "thank you"; the other is little baby's feet - aren't those feet sooo cute? I added feet on either side of the thank you.

I then used my Scor-Pal to add the two horizontal lines right above the "thank you" and baby's feet; tied on some fun, colorful ribbon, added the dew drops (I purchased mine at www.ellenhutson.com) and voila; that's it. I like them - they were quick, easy and colorful. Hope my co-worker likes them.

We've had a very busy weekend, 2 basketball games on Saturday, basketball pictures today at 1 and 3 p.m. and then I met my mom in Wellington to pick up our oldest daughter. She was treated to a weekend with Grammy and Granddad - the BEST kinda weekend to have!

Our little man turns 8 on Wednesday and his birthday party is next Sunday - so we have another busy week and weekend ahead. Hubby comes home late Tuesday night (yeah); life is always easier with a 2nd set of helping hands. I have so much respect for single parents!

I hope you've had a great weekend; thanks for stopping by. Hugs, ~M.

these cards are LOVELY! So elegant, but in a contemporary modern way! I never knew what to do with those small embossing folders (my cuttlebug is coming this week, and now I know what to do!)

Great ideas!
