My 2nd baby card It's a Girl!

My neighbors son and his wife are having a girl!  Lynsay is 30 wks along (and looks great).  The baby shower is this weekend, so, I decided not to procrastinate any longer and got onto making the baby card.  The first one that I ever did is posted here and even won an award for it from the blog "Raise the Bar".   How cool is that!  LOL. 
So this is my second entrance into baby card making.
and the inside..........

Isn't that baby image just too cute?  The feet, right hand and pacifier are all printed twice and pop-dotted up for dimension.  I just got a Bow-Easy (wow is all I can say).  This beautiful bow took about 10 seconds to make using the bow-easy.  I even figured out how to run the ribbon through the bow when tying it to use for fastening around the cardstock.  Easy-peasy!

Gale said...

What an adorable card! I've been wandering through OWOH, and seen several "Gails, and Gayles, but you're the first Gale I've seen! Very rarely do I meet someone who spells it like I do! I grew up on a boat, and my parents named me after the storm on the sea.

Thanh Vo said...
