One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

JUGS with vellum

My friend is going to be a grandmother for the third time, her son and daughter-in-law is expecting their first child in August and I am invited to the shower.  My daughter needed a baby girl gift also, so we bought a cute outfit from Gymboree.
It is a little onsie with bottoms that have cute little giraffte faces on the feet!
The giraffe on the onsie is yellow, so I made the card to be like the outfit.
My vellum is striped and I layered it over a lovely lady pink cardstock.
I am entering this in the JUGS challenge also.

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Super, super cute card, and you are so clever to make it match the gift. This is just darling, I love everything about it, especially the striped vellum!! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along this week at Just Us Girls!!

  2. What a cute outfit and adorable coordinating card! I love the look of the striped vellum over the pink. So pretty and girlie!! What an adorable gift.

  3. This one is super also! I am such a sucker for Giraffes! Thanks for linking up again at JUGS!

  4. Your card is just fabulous! I love how you took inspiration from the little outfit, that's going to be one outstanding gift package!

  5. Such a cute card Colleen, and absolutely adorable outfit...makes me wish Addy were that little again! Love how you took your inspiration from the outfit to make your card...that giraffe is just too cute against the soft pink stripes! Great gift ensemble! :0)

  6. Heeheehee! an adorable outfit and the perfect card to match!! I just love how vellum looks on baby cards!!


  7. Oh my goodness--that outfit is to die for & to have a matching card--over the top wonderful, Colleen! PS--I actually do almost nothing for my roses--just a little pruning--haven't even fertilized in several years. The leaves get disease no matter what so I quit spraying & just take them off. Guess Jackson & Perkins roses are good as that's what all of mine are. Have a great week!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
