Hayley and her husband, Austin, are expecting their FIRST child in less than a month. Hayley is the eldest daughter of my husband, Jer's, baby sister, Cami. (I'll wait while you figure it out.)

Last weekend, I attended a baby shower and, of course, a handmade card was in order! The invitation stated that little Audree Camille's nursery colors are pink, lime green, and brown, so I designed the card accordingly. I used a kraft card base and chose cheery paper colors and patterns. Though I have a jar stamp/die set, I used a larger jar stamp and just hand-cut it. (Twice on the lid.)

I gave the kraft envelope a lil attention, too...

And, the gift wrapping...

The mother-to-be is carrying her baby JUST as her own mother carried HERS. From behind, one can't even tell that Hayley is pregnant -- and from the front, it looks as though she just stuck a volleyball under her shirt! AMAZING to me since I became GI-NORMOUS with EACH of my five pregnancies!


  1. Awww, what a happy occasion for your family, Debbie! Your card is absolutely adorable! Love the sentiment. Too cute! And love the mason jar with the buttons. So nice that you coordinated the colors to match the baby room!

  2. Though the spelling is "off," I had to smile at the name Hayley and Austin chose. LOVELY.

    I'm glad you think I did okay on the card. I'll tell ya...were it not for dies and punches, my cards would be pretty D-U-L-L.

  3. How exciting to be a Great Aunt!!(you don't have to wait anymore):)
    I am sure she will enjoy such an adorable card! I really like your idea of the buttons in the jar! and how you tied all the colours together! Awesome!
