Hi all!  A real quick post tonight.  Did anyone watch the Oscars last night?  We typically don’t get to too many movies, unless it is an animated feature, but I enjoy watching the awards.  We did see Argo and I was very happy it won.  I also enjoy the fashion, which was rather underwhelming, in my humble opinion.

My card today is one I made for a good friend who recently had a baby.  She’s a fellow crafty card maker and my husband noted that was a stumbling block for me.  LOL!   She just had her second baby and her family threw her a little shower before the birth.

One thing I discovered was I have a very small selection of baby stamps.  Probably because most of my friends are 40+ and past baby having days.  I pulled out the set of gel-a-tins letters I had purchased on clearance from Archivers a few summers ago.  The set is called golly gee big letters and golly, gee, they are quite big!  I had to make a big square card to accommodate just four letters.  I paper pieced them with Doodlebug Sugar & Spice papers, which pair up nicely with Summer Sunrise from PTI.  I added a sweet pair of feet charm to the bow.

Inside I created a pocket for the gift card we were giving her.  Very quick and simple!
