Baby Gift

This is a baby gift for one of our neighbor friends oldest daughter, Ginaea. Our kids grew up together. So now Terry & Louie are going to be Grandparents. Our grandchildren will be so close in age. 

I bought this empty paint can at Lowe’s and used a Simply Scrappin’ kit that is now discontinued. I used the baby shoes die to cut out the baby shoes and then stamped them with white craft ink using the Polka Dot Background stamp. The card I cased from Alice Erickson. I used Nursery Necessities instead of By Ones & By Twos which I didn’t have, but I loved the way she made the card look like wains coating. So this is my take. 

Ice Cream Cards

These Ice Cream Cards are all the rage right now, so of course I had to make a couple. So easy and cute to top it off. I first saw these on Patty Bennett’s blog (of course, she does the best stuff).  And now I have seen them on several other blogs. On someone’s blog they used the Tart & Tangy strawberry and made it a chocolate covered strawberry. I thought how clever is that. In my next life I want to be one of those people who thinks up this stuff……..Anyway by using Crystal Effects on just the chocolate part it makes it stand out and really looked like its dipped.
