A baby shower


I was so excited to attend a baby shower this week that I went all out on the creating front!  First I made a card using a cute image from Saturated Canary and coloured it with my copics.  I couldn't find a sketch that I wanted so I just created my own.  I went for gender neutral colours because we don't know if mum is having a boy or girl.  The patterned paper you see in the middle is actually the other side of the yellow patterned paper in the background - which is great when you want co-ordinating colours!  I also used some gloss on the cherry and the girl's eyes, some twine around the ribbon and a touch of bling.

Once the card was made I started work on my diaper baby.  These are a personal favourite of mine to make, and are so much more fun than an outfit in a bag.  Here's is how he/she turned out.  I created 3 rolls of nappies for the head and body, and then I made 2 arms and legs.  Everything is held together with rubber bands, so that mum can pull it apart and use when needed.  Then I dressed baby in a onsie and bib, popped on a beanie, sunnies and a dummy.  Lastly I added a cute lovie.  The photo looks a little blue, but the whole outfit is in white/grey/green.
Lastly I created some cookies - I was so worried my new cookie cutters wouldn't arrive in time, but they turned up yesterday and I was able to create these little masterpieces - bottles, bibs & onsies.  This is only the 3rd time I've ever made sugar cookies and I'm' sensing a new addiction!  I hope the mum to be loves them as much as I've loved creating them!

I'm entering the following challenges:

You are a girl after my own heart! lol I've not ever seen a diaper baby before and this is fabulous! You should do a tute and then let me know so I can come see! I'd love to give that a go! Cookie cutters arriving just in the nick of time... someone was looking out for you! Now I feel like milk and cookies! Ha!
