Joy



The diapers. The crib. The onesies. The dirty diapers. The carseat. The diapers. The sleepers. The dirty diapers. The stroller. The diapers...Babies sure can fill your home up fast with stuff, but my oh my do they ever fill your life and heart with joy. Joy beyond belief, even through all the diapers.

The newest release from Practicing Creativity Designs, Little Bundle, is the perfect gift giving and works so well with other PCD sets. For this removable tag, I simply die cut and stamped (featuring the wood background from Carved Love) a piece of cardstock, distressed the edges and let the awesome sentiment from Little Bundle steal the show. A glittered, glossy pink heart accents the sentiment.

Valerie, Dana and Courtney have some truly fascinating ideas for baby gifts as well, please take a minute to check out their blogs! Also, there is still time to play with Practicing Creativity's Sketch Challenge too!

(A side note: I only wish I could crotchet like this! My great aunt gave gifted it to my first born son, I couldn't find it in me to wrap him in pink so it is patiently waiting in storage for the right little girl...)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Office Max

Stamps: (Woodgrain from Carved Love, Sentiment from Little Bundle) Practicing Creativity Designs
Ink: (Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress) Ranger
Embellishments: (Chipboard Heart) Heidi Grace
Tools: (Labels 4 Nestabilties) Spellbinders
