Hush Little Baby & The PCD Journey

There seems to be a lot of baby shower's coming up in the new future! So during the Barefoot Summer release I thought I'd challenge myself to make a baby card using the set. It wasn't too hard, granted I didn't use the stamp set as the focal point, but as a background. However I did use some of the new Blue and White Stripe.

I also used the Ivory Crochet. I don't know what it is about baby cards, but I'm pretty certain my rule is that they should all have some crochet ribbon!

For those of you that got the new set, I would really love to see what you make. You can either email me (see contact info on sidebar) or post your pictures to our Flickr group.  It's also a great place to get inspiration!

As we've been finishing everything up for this release, I realized that Practicing Creativity Designs has been around for 6 months! Isn't that crazy? We are still very much growing, so if you don't have our blinking you can grab it from my sidebar. I so appreciate you adding it to your blogs!

I also thought it would be fun to go back and review some of my favorite cards from each set. I know many of you are just finding out about us!

Our first set, Key to My Heart. A set that will forever be oh so dear to my heart.
 Next up was You're Dandy with those super fun rays. 

Look Up! was next and we moved to the official website.

I was thrilled to design For the Love of Dots and finally get some really large dots.

Then I recruited my husband to design You're the Man, because well he is the man for me!


And now we have Barefoot Summer. I can't believe time has gone by so quickly! And you can always see more on each of these sets by clicking on the appropriate stamp set name in my labels! Thank you all for coming along on this adventure with me!

Just a few more days left to play along with the EBTKS challenge. The winner will receive a $30 DeNami Design gift card and the opportunity to be our next guest designer!

Such a great baby card! The lace is perfect :) I would love to hear what you thought of P&P &Zombies when you are done. I was thinking of getting it from the library. I feel like I have to, since I have seen every movie version of the book (Even the Bollywood like take on it called Bride & Prejudice)
