A friend was in the hospital recently undergoing a painful procedure. To cheer her up, I made a card with an Autumn themed design. I used one of the dies from the SU Leaflets Framelits set and sponged it with ink in Fall colors. I tilted the background papers to give the card a fun effect.

Last week we had a baby shower at work for 2 ladies who are both due soon. This card is for one of the ladies who shared that she is having a girl. The card I posted last week was for the other lady.
This quick and simple card uses new and old SU supplies. The DP is from one of the very first packages I purchased from SU almost 9 years ago. The embossing folders and stamps are more recent. Like many crafters, I keep adding to new supplies my horde before I use up the old. However, I recently made a promise to myself not to buy any more DP until I used up the paper that I have had in my stash from 5 years or more.
Stamps: Something for Baby, Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU
Paper: WW, Pretty In Pink, Wild Wasabi, DP
Ink: Pretty In Pink, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Flower Punch, Circle Punch, Embossing Folders, Stick on Gems

This card was made for a co-worker who is due to have her first child soon. She and her husband are waiting until the baby is born to know whether they have a girl or a boy. That makes things a little challenging for me to make a card. I chose a DP that had a rainbow of colors and went from there. The layout for the blocks was CASEd from this card.
