Nan! This card’s for you. Well I guess technically it is for that new little grandson that is soon to be!! Not sure what the count is today on baby booties and quilts for this little one. But it wouldn’t surprise me if it reaches over a dozen soon (of each!). hehe


Let me tell you a little bit about Nan. She is my claim to fame… a quilter extraordinaire. She has even published some quilting books.. children’s books.. cooking books. Oh and she has even been on that cooking show. What’s his name.. Emeril? What a joy it is to have such a wonderful friend. (Okay, Nan, have I earned those coconut macaroons yet!?! LOL!!!) Nan’s fabulous blog.

I finally got my new Cuttlebug embossing folders and was so excited to use the dotted swiss one on the little oval frame surrounding the nursery scene. It has been popped up on dimensionals. The onesies have been paper pieced and also popped up.

I came across this ancient set with the shelf and teddy bear images yesterday. I have been trying to go through some of my older sets to perhaps sell them to make room for the new. But I just can not seem to part with any of them. As I said in a forum over on SCS a couple of days ago, “They are more than just tools to stamp with. They are… family.” I think I need some serious help!

  5. I’m blushing! No one has ever accused me of those things before! I want you to know that I printed off that page of your blog – in color – so I can save it forever!

    I can’t ever part with anything either. Besides even my husband wonders why I’d want to part with something I HAD to have at one time or another…lol Can’t argue with that right?!

  10. This is absolutely adorable!!! I love the dots with the little window cut-out!!! And the ric-rac! Too cute!

  11. This is so sweet. What a wonderful baby card. Your stamp is definitely a keeper! Love the paper piecing, the added brads, and, of course, the wonderful dotted swiss embossing.

  12. This is really sweet. I love that CB folder. I also have a very difficult time selling any of my stamps. My older ones are in boxes and I’m constantly getting into them just to look at them. Hopeless.

  13. This is darling. I like that you popped up the frame instead of the image.

  14. congrats to your friend, grandma Nan! SWEET card!

    I love the polka dot CB and it’s on the top of my wish list. I just spent the a.m. searching for the onesie stamp you used in this … then went on to the check out the newly released SU catty and YAHOO – there it is on page 4!

    later, alligator!
