Sock Monkey Baby!

One of my friends said I needed more baby cards in my stash...which is true!  So I decided to make a couple this week.  And already I have a brand new baby boy I can give this to!  He came 6 weeks early but he’s doing well.  This sweet little Sock Monkey from The Cat’s Pajamas - Hang in There Baby is sure to put a smile on your face :)  

I did a little copic colouring and out of the box cutting to give the balloons a lift for the little guy, pairing him with some cute Carta Bella Rough and Tumble DP.  My sewing machine seems not to want to cooperate with me as it slipped a couple of stitches on the corner at the top.  But once those holes are made you’re sort of committed!  

Accents include some pretty Embosslit hearts, enamel dots, and some seam binding.  Though this is not actually a baby set, one of the sentiments has the word baby in it so I just inked up that part of the stamp and voila!  A baby card!

This is adorable! I love baby cards, as you probably know. Who could not love a baby card? Love your out of the box balloons. I need more baby cards for my stash, as well. Been so busy with other things, but soon, I hope!
