Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies (remix edition)

Jason is taking a gift to his pregnant coworker tomorrow and needed a baby card to go with it.  I thought about sending this card, but he told me her nursery was pink and green so I just couldn't!  It's been a long week already, so I decided to CASE myself and remake the same card in different colors.  I think it turned out pretty darn cute in Old Olive and Melon Mambo.  :)

Stamps:  Zoo Babies
Ink: Melon Mambo, Old Olive
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Brights Core'dinations pack, Brights DSP stack (retired)
Accessories:  Brights buttons (retired), White Baker's Twine
Tools:  Big Shot, Alphabet Press EF, Perfect Pennants die, 2 1/2 inch circle punch, sanding block

This top picture of Eli is one of my absolute favorites.  It was taken on Thanksgiving of 2008.   We had no idea he was seriously ill until a few days after Christmas.   In a matter of 2 weeks he went from a healthy looking baby to this poor thing in the bottom picture.  SMA is such a cruel disease and I recommend anyone thinking about having kids to be tested for their carrier status.  Laila is a carrier and I am so thankful that we know that already.  I hope she will never endure losing a child like we did.  Knowledge is power.

  1. Love your zoo baby card! And it looks like Eli was a charmer for sure! I had never heard of his illness until I met you - knowledge is power and you show such grace and courage to make people more aware of this disease.


I love comments! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. :)
