A Belated Baby Shower


A picture of a little handsome baby wrapped in white blankies greeted me Tuesday morning on my telephone. My nephew arrived! Hoorah! I'll let you in on a little secret...This set was created with his arrival in mind. Could there have been any better inspiration than a real little bundle?

I made some sweet little baby sock cupcakes (the real ones with this much frosting wouldn't have lasted long enough for a photo in my house) and topped them with a toothpick sun. Bright and happy!

And I'll leave you, and my sister, with this card.
