Sweet Little One

Happy Sunday - today we are off to a baby shower for my girlfriend & her hubby who had a little boy last month. My hubby was not excited about a baby shower until I explained it's a 10 course Chinese dinner; naturally he was in!

For my card I used Taylored Expressions Beary Special set. I love this set not just because of the images but also because proceeds from the set are going to Sick Kids hospital in Toronto, where some of my friends have had to take their kids; and another is waiting for her little guy to have surgery this summer - I don't know what they would do without this amazing hospital.

The image is coloured with lyras & mineral spirits and I paper pieced the patches on his paws and ears with basic greys archaic paper (didn't know I had it until I was digging in my stash today!)

The cb is Bashful Blue layered with whisper white embossed with swiss dots. The DS paper is layered on bashful blue, paper pieced then I added bashful blue ribbon. The image is also layered on bashful blue. I also stamped the image on the outside of the card in bashful blue

Hope you have a great day - we are looking forward to meeting the babe tonight & hubby is looking forward to the amazing dinner!!

Thanks for stopping by
