Googly Eyes and Gift Tags

Hi there!  Here are a couple of gift tags I made for a newborn & a one year old.

The pig is from 'Button Buddies' stamp set  (so cute!) and the googly eyes are a sneak peek
from the Holiday Catalogue
(eek's only 2 more sleeps!!!! :) )

The little rattle is also from the 'Button Buddies' stamp set.

I used Stampin' Write Markers (double-ended pens) direct to the stamp rubber for this,
and finished it off with a row of bling.
Every little girl wants a diamond-studded rattle, don't they?! :)
Thanks for popping in!

Baby Shower tag and Nappy Cake

These was a little tag I made for a friend's recent Baby Shower.
I love the Pennant Parade stamp set and matching punch!
Top it off with bakers twine
and the bright patterned papers
(Big Top Birthday papers)
 and you have a quick present topper.
And this tower of baby goodies (nappy cake) I assembled for the occasion too.
Now I better think about a baby card for little bub's arrival!
Thanks for stopping in!
Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
