Hello Baby Boy CMCC#52

So glad to see colour me! back in business for the new year and celebrating their first birthday too! Its a great challenge because we can  choose any colour scheme we like from the last 51. I only went as far as Challenge #8 - Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding. Perfect for a baby card I think, and I can show one of the new stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. Cheerful Critters is a photopolymer stamp set with three cute, cheerful critters holding up blank signs. There are words to place on those signs but I turned to another new stamp set with matching thinlets.

What do you think of the lovely script for 'Hello'? There are four words in the Hello You Thinlets - happy, you, thanks and hello. The stamp set is Crazy About You and there are 33 stamps in the set, 30 of them are words to start or finish the phrase. The combinations are endless. Oh, and there is a leaf and two flower stamps too.

My neighbour is due to have her first baby at the weekend. We don't know if it is a boy or a girl yet, but there's a very cute bunny in Cheerful Critters which would be perfect for a baby girl.

I have a handy hint to share also. Do you get magnetic calendars from retailers or Real Estate Agents?
I decided to recycle last years calendar by using Fast Fuse on the printed side to glue it into the lid of the stamp set and it is the correct size and perfect for holding these thinlets. I still have the 2015 calendar for my filing cabinet too.

Some of the icons below won't show until the catalogue goes 'live' to the public on 6th January.

Wishing you a wonderful year ahead,
