A Card Inspired By...

...all the moola I've been dropping at the Carter's outlet lately. And let's not even discuss how many Gymbucks I've earned with Gymboree. How could I resist this line? Seriously?  And since we are doing True Confessions here on the blog, I'll admit to buying her first birthday party dress. Already. It was on clearance. That print is PERFECT for a birthday party, no? This little girl thing is trouble. So many cute clothes, not enough days in the year to wear them all. She's dressing better than me at the moment.

So anyway. Little bib card with a ladybug. Cut with my Silhouette. Somebody asked if I still work for them. Not really sure. Couldn't tell ya.  One of those situations. But if you miss me, let them know on their  blog. I'd love the work...if only to afford more baby clothes! Or, you know, if I run into her 2028 senior prom dress on clearance, I can pick it up and save it for her.

  1. Aaaaah! Could this be any cuter? Love it.

  2. I've got two girls, and a sweet 2 year old granddaughter, so I feel your pain! I can never leave a store without checking the baby clearance rack first.

    That elephant on a bike line is very sweet and I'm sure would look just adorable and that little bumpkin of yours :)

  3. I had a sweet little girl once, she is now an almost 16 year old teenager with no dress sense!! Enjoy the sweetness NOW. I love the dress.
    Great card, that bib card is great, I'll download that one later on.

  4. I spend so much money on clothes for my girls and it drives my husband nuts! I can't help it! The card is adorable! The little lady bug is so sweet.

  5. You crack me up..."if I run into her 2028 senior prom dress on clearance, I can pick it up and save it for her." Spoken like a true mother of a girl! I don't know if I come here more for the creations (which are fabulous!) or your humor, Erin. Either way, it's very uplifting:)

  6. Soon you will be needing to ADD on a closet addition to the house!!!! Cute kids clothes is just as hard to resisit as cute crafting stuff.....

    I was the Silhouette asker- Silhouette blog will be my next stop - to beg for MORE ERIN!

    cute cute CUTE card!

  7. Oh yes I am a slave to the cute clothes! Since you love Gymboree try Crazy8 they are like the sister company and less expensive but just as cute! Love this little lady bug card by the way :)

  8. Adorable card! The bithday dress is SUPER cute - Janie and Jack is totally addicting!

  9. I did the same thing with my baby girl... she is 10 now and refuses to wear a dress or anything itchy. LOL... so enjoy it while you can. Super cute card.
