New Babies to Love and Grandparents


Happy Grandparents Day... way late or way early, it falls on September 10th this year though so I'm going to say it's early! I found a card I made a while ago that I haven't posted here and it's just too cute not to share.

It's a really sweet baby card that might do well to surprise your parents with a baby announcement. Color the baby clothes in particular colors, and you have a gender reveal, too!
There is a sweet little theme this week on the Stampendous blog that you can go see to be inspired with new stamps for baby themed projects. Here is a week of links, being Thursday you'll want to come back tomorrow for the last day.
