Baby Week! I {{{Heart}}} U

I have Day Two of Baby Week for you today with a soft and sweet card designed especially for my brother and sister-in-law.  They are cat lovers and have 2 cats  - for me as a very allergic person....this is never easy!  But,  I knew as soon as I saw this set from There She Goes called Cattitude, it would be perfect for them.  Now they also have two kids so these two cats fit perfectly and are so cute with the baby building blocks.  



I picked up this cute mini pack of paper from Michaels called Baby Boy by Martha Stewart, it has some cute patterns in and some sparkly and shiny designs too.  I pulled out this weeks Viva La Verve layout ( 4.25 x 4.25 inch card) and did a little patchwork feel for the card, adding a simple border along the bottom and some cute buttons and ribbon as accent.  


The sentiment does say Thank You and it's a sweet little sentiment that Julee sent along with my last Verve order...sorry my ribbon covered it in this shot.  You can also see a little of the glitter in the starry paper.  Sweet enough for a baby boy?

Stamps:  TSG - Cattitude, Verve - Thank You;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Sage Shadow;  Paper:  Sage Shadow, Soft Sky, Barely Banana, Flourishes Classic White, Martha Stewart Baby Boy Patterned Paper;  Accessories:  1 3/4 Circle Punch, Big Shot, Lacey Circles Nesties, Banana Grosgrain Ribbon, Buttons, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Copic Markers, Quilt Edge Punch - Martha Stewart, Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

This is so darling. And I've been looking for a good sketch to use up some leftover squares from a baby scrapbook I just finished for a relative - your card is the perfect inspiration!
