A coworker of mine recently had a precious baby boy and we are going to soon have a shower for her to welcome the new addition to her family. This is the card that I made for everyone in the office to sign.

At first, I was concerned that the rattle would be too small for a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card but with a few embellishments, turns out it's just right! I used the sweet treat cups from Stampin Up and filled it with seed beads, blue and green safety pins and some blue acrylic soothers that I found in the party aisle at the local dollar store. I didn't want to use traditional baby colours....I find them a little overused and washed out. I decided to go a little more contemporary this time with browns, bright blues and my favorite - a splash of bright green. I hope that she likes it.

Fall is in full swing at our house - the kids' activities are back in session which makes us busy outside of the home every night except Tuesdays and Saturdays. That doesn't leave a lot of down time to scrapbook or card make for me....I'm hoping to fit in a few quiet days to create over the winter with my beautiful photos taken with my new camera!

Thanks for visiting!!
