March and April are supposed to be the big months for birthdays...but August has got be right up there, too. I know I always send a lot of birthday cards during this month.
One of the most exciting "birthdays" is an actual birth day. I love picking out baby gifts. And it's fun to make cards for baby showers, too. In fact, it's the perfect excuse to indulge in an all-out cute crafting style.

I think that outer space designs are particularly appropriate for babies. I must admit that I bought the above Zutano outfit (striped pants & space patterned shirt) for my friend's baby boy because I knew it would coordinate so well with these Bo Bunny "Blast Off!" papers. Okay, that wasn't the only reason why I bought the outfit. I also knew that my friend and her husband would like this outfit, as they are sci fi fans...and I hoped that the bright colors would even appeal to the baby himself. But yes, the fact that the outfit matched the papers did influence me a little bit. :)
This card came together quickly, thanks to the 6x6" "Blast Off!" paper pad. Of course, I had to let the adorable astronaut monkey take center stage. :) Here's to the beginning of some great adventures--the adventure of a new baby's life, and the adventure of my friends' entry into parenthood! TFL.
