Baby Onsies & Camouflage!

Happy Friday!

Wowsers!  What a busy week its been around here!  My oldest son was off school for Spring Break this week which initially had me imagining getting tons of work done around the house - HA!  If I've learned anything its that plans are meant to be broken and I'm a wonderful PROCRASTINATOR...

It's also been a little busier than usual because my sister had her Baby Boy on Wednesday!!!!!  As of today I haven't met little Alex yet, but I can assure you this Aunty will be headed over for cuddles soon!  

I made this card in his honor and am really happy with the way it turned out!  Now, some of you are probably thinking, 'camouflage...for a baby...really Melissa'??  Well, I do have a method to my madness, I promise you. A few months back my sister decided to re-do my Niece's room in a Minnie Mouse theme but was having a hard time deciding on what to do with the baby's room.  Enter me and my crazy ideas - I offered to paint a feature wall in his room CAMOUFLAGE...{insert} what was I thinking!?!?

However, after a few coats of paint and a couple days work I finished - and I think it turned out so cool! My only concern?  I don't want to be held responsible if he doesn't sleep at night, because let's be frank, the wall GLOWS in busyness LOL.

Anyway, back to my card.  Does it make a little more sense why I chose camo now?  See, told ya I'm not entirely fact I'm pretty sure that there's quite a few folks out there that might look at this card and think..."That's perfect for so and so's baby!"  Which is exactly why I came up with a template for both a boy and girl onsie card the same size as a standard size card.  Perfect for mailing if you can't hand deliver!

Here's the Baby Girl version of the card - the outer shape of the Onsie is a little different - I added capped sleeves and some ruffles to make it a little more girly.

The best part?? Camouflage ruffles on the bum!  How stinkin' cute is that?
