For a special little boy
My husband's cousin and his wife, who live in Fla., had their third boy about a week and a half ago. When I heard that they were decorating his room in a Curious George theme, I knew immediately that it was time to use this image of George that I had cut out of one of Nate's story book that he'd destroyed when he was an infant.
Giving an infant a paper book is rarely a good idea—hence, board books. I had saved this and stashed it away from a page that had be ripped out. I'm so excited to mail this doorknob hanger off to them!
The background paper is Lily Bee, letters are AC Thickers and the felt clouds are die cut from the Papertrey Ink cloud dies. The buttons are also Papertrey Ink.
And what's a baby gift without a card!? I made this with inspiration from Card Patterns sketch #110. Gotta love that site! Great jumping off point for me every week.
I used the same Lily Bee paper as the background and kept the jungle animal theme so that the gift will match a bit. Hope Mike, Mandy and new baby Hudson love this! :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. And thanks to everyone who did the No Housework hop this past weekend. I loved seeing all of the inspiration, and I appreciate all of you who stopped to leave a comment or signed up to follow my little blog. THANKS!!!
