bundle of joy

I've got a little baby girl card to share today.  We have many families in our little church who are having babies these days!  I made this baby girl card for a family who recently welcomed baby Lillian into the world!  

Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink unless noted)
Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Kraft, & misc. patterned paper from my stash
Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings, Polka Dot Basics II,
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Fresh Snow
Other: Button Twine, Buttons & Eyelet ruffle from my stash

Yesterday I mentioned that I had rearranged our basement family room to include my crafting space.  So here is my corner...

Our family room is long and narrow, and obviously unfinished!  We are hoping to have the sheetrock taped soon, then we can paint and put carpet in.  However, my husband was not completely sold on the idea of having a corner of it be my craft space, he would rather it was in one of the bedrooms.  So I convinced him to let me try it out since we aren't planning to finish either of the bedrooms until we have children.  I don't want to buy new furniture until I've had time to be in the space and figure out just how I want everything.  I got everything moved onto the bookshelf and card table and set up the other table in front of the window so I have some nice natural light at my work space.  Even unfinished, it's still an upgrade from our Kitchen island!  P.S. Even thought that bar stool is hideous, it's super comfy!

Thanks for stopping by!

I think what I like most about your craft area is that great purple light ball thingie hanging down. I'd love one of those in my classroom (our class color is purple) :)
