New baby!

Hi there!

I am at a stage in my life where I don't really have the need for new baby cards :)

Too old for friends with new babies, and too young for friends with grand children or our own grand children!

But I wanted to join Chrissie & Jen at Less is more for their 'new baby' challenge.

Addicted to cas also provided inspiration with their 'new' challenge ... and with the help of the sketch (rotated) at Case this sketch,  this is what happened in the craft room today.


I found this cute baby in an online coloring book and colored it with Promarkers.

The cheeks were colored with chalk.

The paper piecing  and fuzzy cutting were done with the help of my Silhouette cameo.

The cross panel is a  Memory box die called contempo circle.

Thanks for visiting!

Cute!! Love that M.B. background and de tiny pearlaccents.
I wonder, shall I make my comments in Dutch? You can understand it, I think.

This is sooooo sweet! The cross panel is exactly like the mesh on baby play pens! Love the blue gingham onesie!

Another technique that I am going to have to brush up on with my Silhouette (in other words, try to remember how to do this!!!)

He is so cu-u-te! George always got such a kick out of my reaction (and every other woman's for that matter) whenever I saw a baby!
