And We are Back ....

I know I said I was going to post a layout with our newest addition as my first project "back," but after the wonderful outpouring of love and kindness from our friends and family I thought I should make some thank you cards and post those first.

These are 3x3 cards which are super cute and easy to make, as well as, being perfect for using up the overflowing box of scraps which haunts my workspace. When making a bunch of the same item, I like being able to mix up the color palette and using scraps is perfect for this.

The bird and branch are an adorable Stampin' UP! punch. I used the Spellbinders' Nestabilities long scallop rectangle for the folding card portion and a Stampin' UP! stamp for the "so grateful for" expression. The Victorian Scroll Cuttlebug folder was then used to emboss the blue base. These came together super quick which was nice, because I had over 50 to make.

So my goal for Monday is a layout of Reid in his first few days!

Thanks for looking,
