One of the new couples on our court just had a new baby boy, their first child! This is the card I made for them. The embossing folder is called Baby Shower and it is a Cuttlebug folder. I used both the regular folder, and the border folder that comes with it. The Cricut cuts on the front of the card are from Simply Charmed. The overalls on the inside came from a cut swap, so I am not sure what cart they are from. The die cut stickers around the sentiment are made by Crafty Seal. They were given to me by BCSQ's Grandma PJ. The new baby's name is Thomas, Tommy is what they call him, and he is soooo precious. He has a full head of dark hair, and the most perfect complexion I have ever seen on a baby. I got to hold him for a whole 2 hours while Mommy took a shower and a nap (which I insisted on). They have no family close...hers lives in Texas, and his is in Poland, so my DH and I and two other "older" couples on the court have adopted them. She is also nursing him, and struggling a little with it, so I have been trying to encourage her and help her out with it, since I nursed all three of my guys. He is just a little lazy when it comes to eating, and won't stay latched on properly. Does anyone have a suggestion for that? Her nurse told her to put a little sugar water on her nipple, but that didn't seem to entice him any. It is kind of funny, but I have been tickling his feet to keep him awake while she nurses him. It is working, but I can't be there every time she feeds him! Sorry for the long post, and thanks for looking at and commenting on my card. Blessings, GG.

Love the card! Thanks for sharing.

How thoughtful of you, your husband and the other neighbors to reach out to these new parents. I'm sure your helpfulness is very much appreciated!

Adorable card, and of course the inside verse is so sweet, as always.

Such an adorable card! Great job. Our first son's name is Thomas and we called him Tommy for quite some time...til he got older and didn't want to be called "Tommy" any more.

It is so nice you are helping out. I'm sure they appreciate your help and the others too.

TFS.

Patricia: This is a wonderful card but all of yours are. Glad you can use the stickers. I bought those awhile ago and just didn't have room at my house for them so they got left at my grandma's house. I will have to see what is left and send you some more. Since I have not used them some one might as well have them and use them.

Great card!

As for helping the new mom, I breastfed my 2 also and found that they would feed for a few minutes then fall asleep. So before I started, I would undress them down to their diaper and use a room temperature baby wipe to touch them with to help keep them awake. It seemed to help. Best Wishes to the new parents.
