Oh Baby! Blog Hop Day 1

I have to start with a shout out to one of my babies -
Little Bear - who turns 8 today!

Welcome to the Oh Baby! Blog Hop hosted by Emily at http://www.createserendipity.net/. If you've stopped by my blog today for the hop, then you're in for a treat! If this is your first stop, make sure you go back to the beginning and hop along with all of the rest of the blogs to see all of our fabulous Baby themed projects! If you arrived here from Deborah at http://www.scrappingmamma.net/ then you are in the right place. This is a very large hop, so you have 3 days to check out all of the projects! This hop runs from August 4-6, so make sure you check back for new projects each day!
Now on to my project for today:
This was a draft of the adoption announcement I created for a friend who recently adopted one of the cutest little boys! To create this card, I used the Animal Cookies papers from Close to my Heart. The animals were individually cut from the paper, a time-consuming but worthwhile project. While I LOVE embellishments, I made these cards flat to keep the postage costs down. 

And now, for blog candy. For your first entry, please leave a comment on this post. For additional entries, you can (1) become a follower and (2) share this post on Twitter or Facebook. For each additional entry, post a comment saying you've done so (and include the link if applicable). No extra entries for this, but we'd love to have you like us on Facebook or follow @mamacurls on Twitter.

Now hop along to Michelle at http://www.designsoncloud9.blo​gspot.com/ and see what she has made for today!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow!

These announcements may be flat for mailing, but they don't fall flat at all. So adorable. Your friend is blessed to have you create for her. Love the color combos. Ü Cynthia vandyzfam@sbcglobal.net
