Summer Means...Baby Showers!

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.

Supplies: cardstock by Archivers, papers by Bo Bunny, pen by Zig.

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.
