Pastel welcome for baby

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great weekend. We're having a bit of a heat wave over our long weekend break, if the temp keeps going up I'll be first in our pool this season!

I've been asked to make a couple of gender neutral baby cards.
I stamped a tiny gingham background in new sprout ink and punched out squares.

These little icons were in the bargain bin at a craft shop a few years ago, and yes I'm finally using them! I cut them from snippets of white and cream card and inked them up.
I'm linking up to the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, you only need to use 1 scrap or snippet to join in the fun.

I'm also linking to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where there is an anything goes theme.

Papertrey Ink Bundle of love sentiment and gingham background stamp; 1"square punch; versafine ink & clear ep; versacolor ink; SU embossing folder, not sure of the name; baby shapes cookie cutter dies.

Thanks for visiting,

Great card Cathy - and I do so love the nine squares design, it never fails to delight. And perfectly neutral as you rightly say!

I think you've hit the mark Cathy. It's a beautiful neutral baby card. They are charming little icons. Well done using old stuff. We're all so good at buying new stuff and not making use of what we've already got.Barbxx
