Baby Shower

I've never been to a baby shower.  My cousin Jemma is expecting in October and she was having a baby shower and I was invited.  Unfortunately I couldn't make it (so I still haven't been to one!) but since I was invited I thought that I should at least make a little card for the occasion.  Here is what I came up with:

Just a simple card, paper pieced pram, die cut words and I sewed on a couple of vintage buttons for the pram wheels.  Not sure if this is appropriate for a baby shower, but I sent it anyway!!!

  1. Lovely card, the wheels are great! Valerie

  2. Oh this is fabulous and so cute.

  3. I can't believe you've never been to a baby shower, gasp! The one I remember best (besides Nolan's) is one where we had to taste 30 different types of baby food and guess what they were. Me, not being a mom yet, won a prize for guessing the least amount correct - I only got 1 right! And then we (well, they) sat around talking about kids and when they first walked/talked and what their worst poop was like and I thought: "Oh. My. God. I hope I am NEVER this boring!" Haha! Anyway, love the card, the buttons are so clever! And here is my email: I think I know what recipe I'd like to pass on, it's a healthy banana bread that I make all the time and the kids love it! Big hugs, Roxy.

  4. fab card carole, shame you didn't make it, (never been to one myself either, lol)...xx

  5. Aww, this is cute Carole, I'm sure it's the perfect card to send. I've never been to a baby shower either, although, when I was pregnant with Zach ten years ago! Did go out for lunch with all my girly working pals, and they made a bit of a fuss of me, with lots of baby gifts, is that the same thing? not sure, lol!
