Time for a new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
Recently, our fellow teammate, Paula gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.
Paula and Nathan Ryan Joshua
We are so very excited for Paula  and her family.
This challenge, chosen by our fabulous teamie,  Sue Kment,
is  I am Thankful for babies.
Awww, sweet Happy Hopper baby.

I used a onsie pattern I have had forever.
This sweet little happy hopper baby was used on the front of the onsie.
I used a spellbinders die for the collar shape and the little bunnies
are a small punch.  A Martha Stewart border punch and some rick rack
were used on the front.  The onsie was run through the swiss dot embossing folder.
I used a small whole punch to punch circles to add to the arm and leg opendings.
Small white buttons were used on the bottom.  Colored with Copics.

This is the inside of the card.  Another little Happy Hopper..shhh almost asleep.
Mailed this card off to Paula and her family.  Hope she has received it in the UK
before she sees it here.
We appreciate our two generous sponsors this week
House Mouse Designs -$25 gift voucher for their online store
Di's Digi Downloads - $10 Voucher to the DDD Shop
We are so excited about this challenge, and the design team has come up with some wonderful cards/projects to celebrate Nathan's birth.  Hop on over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog to check them out and get some inspiration, then ink up those House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper Stamps and help us celebrate babies.  We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later.
