Beary Sweet Mouse Baby!

**Click HERE for Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential: Hats On! post**
Stamps: Stampendous 'Beary Good Friends', Pink Cat free digi sentiment. Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Textured Barely Banana, Basic Grey 'Two Scoops', GP 110 white. Ink: Memento black, Copics. Accessories: Long rectangle Nestabilities, wide pink grosgrain ribbon.

A new baby girl in the family arrived recently, so I wanted to make a sweet holder to dress up the gift card we would be sending out. This pop-up tutorial by Jane (Whoopsie Daisy) gave me a quick and easy template and I only needed to add a set of pink monogrammed cards to complete the gift!

Have you seen the new Pink Cat digis yet? So adorable I couldn't resist purchasing a few. As I was browsing, I discovered they also offer a whole set of sentiments that coordinate with the images, but also work for this House Mouse image for FREE. Isn't that generous?

A baby footprint stamp by Stampcraft and the SU! 'Congrats' sentiment completed the inside, still leaving room for a personal note:



The layout is inspired by the Midnight Madness Sketch #29, done on a miniature scale with a ribbon added for closure.

Now it's time to spend some time organizing my craft area -- it looks like a natural disaster hit after it was dismantled to search out a missing phone line!
