Hello babies!!

Hello friends : ) Thanks a bunch for stopping by today.  I am here to share a batch of baby cards I have made recently.

Everyone must have heard about the Mighty Multiples by now : ) the adorable little miracles that have joined Grandma Linda's family this month - you can read about them HERE.  Then my niece asked me to create some baby cards for her to give and I have another two nieces expecting babies almost any minute now!  Baby cards are among my favorite to make and being that I was totally out of baby cards in my "stash" I decided to crank out a whole nursery full.

To start with this trio of hellos were sent to the Mighty Multiples:




These are the cards I sent to my niece, Jennifer:

I CASEd myself with this design : )

Another CASEd design from a few years ago




 ... these two will go to my other nieces....




...and these are just to re-build my stash : )





I have been staying SUPER busy with my organizing and sorting and Mexican visitors :  )  Everything is going good.   My "student" is doing very well with her English and managing to teach us some Spanish too!! I will come back later this week with a post to share the cards we've been making in "class" and the fun we've been having.

BIG (((HUGS)))

Oh baby! This post is full of sweetness! I adore each card you created. And I agree, making baby cards is so fun. So full of hope! I adore your color choices, so soft and delicate. I also really like the embossing on your quilt block cards. That adds such great texture...just like a...wait for it...quilt!:) Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cards, Patti! Hugs! :)

These are all incredible Patti! I especially love the quilted ones! They appear to have so much texture! I just sent Linda a baby card that she actually received today! I can't even imagine having triplet grandchildren and how exciting it must be, it sounds like they are doing very well. Enjoy your guest and a little Espanol. Here is some homework for you. Haces un hermoso trabajo.
