Three Faces of Baby

Here's a little "progressive" card I made using "Wee Tees" and the paper piecing technique.

This inside says "Spit happens!" Fun for showing new parents what's in store, reminding second time parents about those crazy baby days, or just aha ha anytime card. I am loving the Basic Grey Offbeat papers, what great colors! Angel onesie is pieced from Paper Temptress White Diamond (for shimmering angelic look! halo is outlined with Lionet Gold Copic), "Stinker" in Kraft paper, and "devil" in Real Red. Base is the new Gina K Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss. The little arrow is from "Little Tees" .

Happy Monday! This week I've got two guest design prjects you'll love, a few GK "sightings" I just have to share, a sweet treat party idea with "Wee Tees" and some blog candy, mmm mmm!

How true! We are taking care of our 17 month old grandson (pretty much raising him) and we are being reminded of how they change from an angel to, well, something else. Right now he's a littel stinker. Still our angel though!

HA HA... I love these! I like that the stinker is in brown... reminds me of Pigpen from Charlie Brown! Though I do believe my daughter went from Angel... to Devil... and well... not sure she's coming back!(jk)LOL CUTE!
