New Life

A good friend of mine had her second child yesterday evening. David Charles is the first son born to them, and everyone's very excited about his arrival. Unlike many other expectant parents, they chose not to find out the sex of this baby before he arrived, so it was very fun to get the news today!

When I saw this onesie card at Lauren Meader's blog a few weeks ago, I knew this was what I wanted to make to congratulate his parents and commemorate his birth. Today Lauren was so kind to post this tutorial so that I could get right down to making it instead of trying to figure it out.

My creation utilized the Bold Brights I already had out on my desk, as well as some well placed rub-ons (the stripes on the sleeves), eyelets, and the stamps from my aforementioned Small Sayings Hostess set.

If you think we should include this design as one of the cards for this month's stamp-a-stack, leave me a comment.

I don't work tomorrow at Starbucks, so hopefully I will have stamping time in the afternoon!

this is a cute card to have in my stack, maybe on a neutral color so it can be good for both sexes!!!

OMG!! so cute - and the detail of the eyelets where the snaps would be - PRICELESS!!

So so cute and I love it when people surprise themselves with the sex of the baby - it's so fun!
