Baby Thank Yous

My little guy is 2 months old this week! How time has flown. Yes, I've been very sleep deprived and I have my own set of luggage that resides under my eyes, but every minute has been a blessing. He's such a joy and fills our days with so much laughter and love.

I decided that it was finally time to post the Thank Yous that I made for any baby gifts that I had received. I figured by now I've received them all....so here it is :)

My son's nursery is done in a nautical theme, so I wanted the Thank Yous to be as well. I found a card by annieht on SCS that was similar and it gave me the inspiration I needed for this card.

I love sailboats! They just have a fun summer feel to them. I used one of my favorite designer papers (Maine Blueberry) for the background and I even put my scallop edge punch to use!

The bottom of the sailboat is coated in Crystal Effects to make it shine like it's in the water and I felt that the use of the designer papers was like the sky and the ocean. The white dots along the edge of the scallop are done in white gel pen to coordinate with the designer paper and the CuttleBug backgrounds.

I used the markers to ink the stamp, so each time I stamped the sailboat, I had to reapply the marker colors individually. It takes time, but it certainly makes the image pop!

Accessories: Maine Blueberry DP, Old Olive, Whisper White & Bashful Blue cardstocks, Scallop Edge Punch, Coluzzle, Cutter Kit, Sponge, Not Quite Navy ink, Many Marvelous Markers, Striped Bashful Blue Grosgrain, White Gel Pen, Crystal Effects & CuddleBug
