Baby girl bear

First off Happy Thursday!!! Wooohooo!!! The week is almost over. I am so excited, I can't even tell you. I so hope to hear from my husband sometime today. I miss talking to him and hearing his voice. This also means you guys get to stop hearing me complain and mope around about him being gone hehehe!!!

So, I had a few ideas about what I wanted to create and show you ladies today. I was going to pull out my sewing machine and see what I can do about sewing on a card. But then I got playing around with the boys, talking to neighbors, watching a friends daughter, etc, etc. and the sewing machine never came out.

So, after I finally got the boys in bed I sat at my craft table determined to make something. Then I remembered that I bought the DCWV Nana's nursery baby girl pack from Michael's last weekend. I couldn't wait to pull some of the papers out. They are just gorgeous. I have to admit, I didn't think about who I was going to make it for. As far as I remembered everyone I knew was having boys. But to my happiness I remembered a friend I worked with in Alaska is having a baby and she just so happens to be having a girl so when I find out her baby shower date I will be sending this with a gift. Yeah for girls!!! hehehe, I so wish I had one, anyway...

So, I knew with a girl I had to use pink so I pulled out my PTI sweet blush cardstock. I picked out 2 coordinating PP from the DCWV pack. You can't really see it in the picture but the onsie paper is on top of the same PP that I used to paper piece the bear.

I was trying to go with the homemade stitched bear look when I made this bear. I loved the Pp pattern for that look. I figured the pattern on the paper worked for the look I was going for. I popped the bear and the matting on dimensionals.

I really love how it turned out. I am happy to send this to a friend expecting her first baby. I hope you like it as well.

Again, happy Thursday!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
