A Baby Shower



One of my friends and fellow Waterlilys is pregnant with her first child.  The leader of our table has commented that if she has a girl the baby would be a "Little Lily" and if it is a boy, he would be a "Tadpole" until he is old enough to join the WaterBoyz, our brother Bible study group for men.  We are having a baby shower for her but unfortunately I won't be able to go because I will be at work that day.

This card is my first attempt at paper piecing.  I have done lots of cards with paper piercing but the piecing I have avoided because I just don't like to cut out shapes.  If I don't have a die or a punch for a stamp or shape, I usually will not cut it out with scissors.  That is my lazy area in crafting.  =-) 

Recipe:
Stamps:  Baby Bundle, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper:  Barely Banana, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Gable Green, WW, Real Red, DP from Dollar Store
Ink:  Stazon Black, Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Brads, Markers, Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Chipboard Buttons, Puffy Moon, SU Border Punch, Twine
