welcome home, baby Lily.

A few online friends are blog hopping to congratulate Laurel on her new baby girl!  Sweet Lily was born a bit early, so even though Laurel has had this card in her hands for awhile, we all decided to wait and post our cards when Lily was back home with her family.

Truth:  I sent Laurel the card (hi Laurel) but I forgot to package up the chocolates.  So, a few days later, I ate them.  I am a terrible friend.... but they were delicious... I owe you some goodies, Laurel *wink*

I used lawn fawn's "plus one" baby carriage to create my focal image, and added the little bow from "pa-rum-pa-pum-pum" to girly it up even more.  A few wood veneer hearts, some button wheels, and a length of ruffled ribbon finished off this simple but textural baby girl card.

The chocolate wrapping was simple to create, but so cute!  I could easily see these little packages for a shower gift (maybe with something other than chocolate, but I love me some chocolate...)  I used the bear from "pa-rum-pa-pum-pum" and added the same bow onto her head.  The A-B-C images are by Paper Smooches, and the tag shape and matching outline image are by Clear and Simple Stamps.

Laurel, your baby girl is so beautiful (and already looks so much like her big brother!)  I hope this little hop has brightened your day!  Give Lily an extra snuggle from me :)

Here's a complete list of friends waiting to congratulate you:
