Cards for Newborn Niece Adelaide

Nieces are such a fun excuse to make cute little pink things…

This is the only photo I seem to have of the onesie card I made for her shower in March. I made it in a bit of a rush after a lot of travel and by the time I finished, I didn’t take the time for a proper photo shoot. In fact, I don’t think I even took a photo of the inside.

I had slightly more time for the bib card I took with us when we met Adelaide for the first time after her birth in May. This is the card that accompanied the squirrel and “A” I posted last week. I used the same floral paper from the onesie card and the same pink ribbon that I used to make the squirrel’s rose.

Despite having proper time to work on this card, I somehow manage to forget the strings for the bib. You know, the part that would come off the points where the bows are and tie around the baby’s neck if it were an actual bib? Sigh…

The inside (which I cut off a bit when messing around trimming the overall shape of the card) says:

Babies are cuddles and memories to keep
(three a.m. feedings and too little sleep).
Babies are laughter and smiles to share
(and bottles, and booties, and bibs everywhere)!

Babies are sweet, and though they are small,
they fill up your hearts – and your house – wall-to-wall.

Judging by photos my sister-in-law has posted in the months since then, that last part about filling the house is very true. The adorable munchkin has taken over!
