Welcome baby

Hi!  Seems like I've been making lots of baby and wedding cards lately.  I made this card for the Fabulous Felt Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (there's still time to play, challenge ends September 5th!) and for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday--Button it up!

I used some of the clothes from TGF's Wardrobe sets.  I stamped them onto some PTI felt and cut them out.  I added some tiny buttons (click to enlarge photo) onto the clothes.  I also added some die cut buttons (from PTI) with twine and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I finally also bought a grass die from My Favorite Things.  It's so much easier than cutting grass out with scissors.  I layered 2 rows of grass.

Pretty simple but it actually took me some time to pick papers!  I think sometimes I tend to over think things.  I need to follow the KISS motto. 

I still need to get into a routine now that all 3 kids are in school.  But mostly I think I need to stop feeling guilty that I get to stay home.  Maybe that is why I don't spend all my time crafting and doing something fun.  Most of this week I've been cleaning and organizing our house and spending maybe an hour devoted to crafting before I head out to pick up all the kids.  I guess moms feel guilty no matter what we choose to do though.

Thanks for reading!

The tiny clothes are soooo cute! What cute tiny buttons. Neat grass. I know, I feel like I should be more productive on my days off. But I think of it more like resting before the kids come home, because that's when the real work begins!
