Not just football season…also Baby season

Several friends pushing babies into this world lately, so I thought I would wrap up the AYSI challenge with accomplishing the personal task of having baby cards to send also. Multi-tasking is part of my soul…what can I say.

Here is what the AYSI sketch challenge looked like this week:


I think some of the girls (designers were grumbling about this one because they were having trouble with it.
I can’t say that it came together quickly and I think that is due to some of my “detour” during my creative process.
I did have it narrowed down to “baby” and I also went looking for a good color challenge and came across the Friday Mashup which was Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Real Red – perfect for my boy card, so just had to alter slightly for a girl card – I can do that.

Here is how it all came together for the boy card:

And the girl card just swapped out the blue for a pink:

I didn’t think January was a typical baby pushing month…if it’s cold where you are it may be a good baby making month… I can see that.
Have you noticed more babies being born? Or is it just me?
