baby card mock up and a baby tree

After asking my fellow bloggers for some advice on my baby shower invitations. I had my heart set on combo #3 (see here for reference). When I got home I glued down my basic grey paper, but then something happened and I ended up with this:
Now here is my question... does this look girlie enough? I hope so because I'm kind of digging it. I also think I'm going to replace the white buttons with some Lemon Tart vintage buttons for PaperTreyInk! So excited about this release. I also added some stickles to the dots and led it off the paper. I'll print of the invitation on the Lemon Tart (I will be ordering some on the 15th). I'll probably also add some lage polka dots. What do you think?


In other news, I made (yes made... he's a good sport though) Chase go take a picture with our cute little trees we just planted. I had this great idea of taking a picture with the tree every year. I think it could be an incredible scrapbook page! And isn't my hubby so cute... and confident enough to wear pink... gotta love it.
I almost didn't post my picture because well, that super flowy shirt sure does make me look pregnant. I don't need any of those rumors going around town! So it was just the wind and a very light shirt! :)
So let's pray these trees live so I can one day make that scrapbook page!

oh my... seriously... when i scrolled down enough to catch a glimpse of the picture... it scared me... i was like did i not know she was pregnant? and i hadn't even read that part of your post yet... ha!! Good thing you explained or someone who didn't know your skinny self might think you were pregnant. Not that being pregnant is a bad thing! Hint Hint! :-)

I love this card! That double ribbon is fab!

Oh, and I did think you were pregnant for a sec...thanks for clearing up that rumor! ;)

Ha ha, your picture reminds me of the time when I was riding the bus with my hands in my jacket's chest pocket and a lady stood up to give me her seat...She thought I was pregnant! :-)

It does look like your blouse is just flowing, not "resting" on anything...:-) Ok...maybe enough talk about pregancy, let's switch to baby shower invitations...oops :-)

The invite looks sweet. With lemon tart paper and vintage buttons, wow, it'll look classy! :-)

My overseas family is in Romania. We're going there in less than a week! I'll share pictures! :-)

I love the card, and the polka dots will look amazing along with the new buttons. Totally sweet!

I love your idea about the trees and got a good chuckle out of your photo and concern.

Have a good day!

Chase looks completely THRILLED to be taking that picture! That is totally something I would make Juan do and it is also totally the response I would get as well!

Hey Courtney! Thank you so much for the prayers for my daughter! Her leg is doing so much better! Praise God, He is so GOOD!!
Love the invitations! The colors are great! Oh, I have shirts like that too, I call them my pregnant shirts! I guess it gets people talking, Oh well, it could be worse! :)

Winter said...

Hey I forgot to add, I saw on Kelly Marie's blog that you said that you were a Kris fan on American Idol. Me too! He is my favorite! I hope he wins!! :)

Dear Courtney,

Please come over to my blog, I have something for you, as an appreciation for your encouragement!

I love the invites! they are so awesome. If you are worried about them not being girlie enough, maybe add a few berry sorbet buttons or something. Thanks for the kind words on my blog!

I love your invite! The button wheels are absolutely adorable. I am glad there is someone else waiting just to buy buttons from PTI! :) I definitely think the card is girly enough!

I love your new trees! So cute! I totally feel ya on the flowy shirt thing. My grandmother recently emailed me to ask me if I was fat because of a flowy shirt. Fun times. haha!

PS. I am definitely a Kris fan! As soon as he sung the song from "Once", he had me! I am also a big Adam Lambert fan because vocally he is amazing! The way he has connected his normal voice to his upper range is amazing! I think they both have great careers ahead of them!

Love the card! And I think the pic of you is cute! I'm still wearing my maternity clothes because I have to wear loose clothes here, but sometimes I just want to get rid of them just because they are maternity! LOL!
