Hello Baby

 A colleague of mine is expecting her first baby at the end of March and I am hosting a shower for her in a couple of weeks.  I put together some invitations for the shower based on her nursery colour scheme...

Baby card featuring the Baby We've Grown stamp set with sentiment from Sweet Essentials.
Isn't that little bunny the cutest thing?? I just adore him...he reminds me of The Velveteen Rabbit.  I stamped him in Staz on and coloured him in using a blender pen and Smokey Slate, Summer Starfruit and Crisp Cantaloupe markers.  The tag the bunny is stamped on was punched with the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch...love that thing!  So easy to make tags of any size...I'm also using it to make the favours for the shower...more on those later ;)

I made 19 of these, so I got lots of watercolouring practice ;)  Since the mommy-to-be doesn't know whether she's having a boy or a girl I kept it as gender-neutral as I could but couldn't resist adding a bit of lace and some bling for mommy (who is a real girlie-girl).  She loved it!

On the actual invitations I replaced the Hello Baby sentiment with You're Invited and then printed the shower details on the inside of the card.  I figured you wouldn't really be interested in where this gal is registered and what time her shower is at, so I changed up the inside for you...

I'm excited about this shower!  I have some fun ideas for decor that I'll show you when I get it made.  In the meantime, it's back to bed for me as I work on getting rid of this yucky sinus thing.  Have a great day, everyone!


  1. This is so sweet. Love the soft colors and the bunny. Baby showers are so much fun. Have a great time and post pix of décor.

  2. Leena, this is really cute- it's funny, because I made invitations to my daughter's first baby from this bunny stamp.. Her colors are chartreuse and aqua, so I used the bunny and Oh, Baby on a tag with the Mosaic Madness stamp sset and the embossing folder for the background. So cool! :)
