OH BABY! Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Oh Baby! Oh Baby! Oh Baby! Oh Baby!

This week the theme is BABIES over at the fantastic Heart 2 Heart blog.

As much as I have really been trying to stay focused on layouts, I also needed to make some new, sweet & simple, baby cards. With any luck I may still have time this week to create a page or two also. It's not looking promising though.

These cards didn't turn out at all as I had first planned in my head ... I was constantly interrupted ... I had a layout in mind, & lost it, colors in mind, lost 'em, stamps in mind, couldn't figure that out either ... got called away and left stamp pads open, urgh, got distracted and stamped in the wrong spot, darn! So, these four cards, are so different than my original plan but will at least do in a pinch I guess.

~ Love Is Family ~
All supplies used are CTMH. Colors are Sweet Leaf, ButterCup, Hollyhock, Sky and Heavenly Blue. Stamp sets are "Over the Rainbow", "Welcome Baby", "All My Love", and "Priceless Love Word Puzzle".

Thank you so much for looking and comments seriously make my day so please, feel free :)

Heart 2 Heart friends, did you know that Autism Awareness Day is almost here? If you would be so kind, I invite you to please learn something new about Autism today. Share it with someone you know. Wear Blue on April 1 and/or April 2nd. Light your home up blue for those days. Celebrate all the fabulous, smart, amazing, wonderful people in our world with Autism! Celebrate my two little guys and all the phenomenal progress they have made and continue to make ~ I could not possibly be any prouder! Celebrate families with Autism; I am so blown away by how completely fantastic and special and patient my big boys are with their little brothers! We are so BLESSED!
~ Celebrate Awareness & Learning & Everyone's Beautiful Individuality ~

My two little boys have Autism. Did you know that ASD now effects 1 in 110 children, 1 in 70 boys? We, as a global community, need to do more to learn more about what is causing Autism today.

I have started a small web page though Autism Speaks and our family has a goal to raise $500 for this great organization in the next week. Every dollar counts. Your dollar could be the dollar that makes the difference! All donations will be issued a tax receipt by Autism Speaks and we would be very grateful. Thank you.

Here's the link to our page if you would like to donate:

Have a delightful day today!

Love the bright colors you used!
I'll check out your link, autism is certainly misunderstood and much research is still needed.
Thanks for sharing with us at H2H!
