Finally got some samples made for Tiana's baby announcements. She wanted the hippo from Bundled in Love, and a design similar to what we did for her first baby (who got the Bundle of Joy giraffe) but this time horizontal instead of vertical, 'cause a hippo's wider than it is tall. So here's what I've got.
And here's another version with the colors swapped around a bit:
Personally, I like the first one with the Pear Pizzazz card base. But I kinda like the all-Pumpkin Pie striped paper on the second one (and that has nothing to do with the fact that I want to hoard the multicolor stripe paper....well, maybe a little...but I still like the Pumpkin Pie stripes!) So T, which one do you like?
I seem to be in a Pear Pizzazz kind of mood, I made this next. How fun would it be to have a purple Vespa?
This one just isn't working for me. I think it would have worked better with a really bold pattern for the paper strip, which would have offset the white space on the right. Ehh.
And this is what I sent Missy for her birthday, along with the birthday card that had a bunch of clocks on it (totally apropos, no?). Next time maybe I'll post all the pictures I used for the clock, but they're on the Mac and I'm writing this on the laptop so that will have to wait till next time. For now, I'm back to stitching while I wait for Lee to get home. TTFN!
