Saturday is here!

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  I am sorry I didn't blog all that much this week.   Not much went on over here with crafting!  Just wasn't in the mood and was busy.  Plus it was a shorter week with Thanksgiving last weekend!  Something about those short weeks that really throw you off!  It's good to take a break!  My husband Chad is gone on a guys sports trip so it's me and the kids for a few days!  

I am here with another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge!  We have a fantastic sponsor this week, Scor-Pal!  And what a great prize, a Scor-Buddy!

Our challenge theme this week is Celebrations!  It's in honor of Jenny's wedding and her one week anniversary!  It's a great theme as it's so easy to play with celebrations being anything from wedding, birthdays, holiday or anything you celebrate!  I already shared my wedding card I made for Jenny and Jason here. So I went with two baby cards as that is what I am currently celebrating A LOT!  Last week I brought dinner to our friends who just had a baby boy and I didn't have a card to go with my gift!  How bad of me is that?  I was so mad at myself!  So many friends and family expecting babies so I figured I need to plan ahead!  I made two cards same style but one for a girl and one for a boy:

I like the idea of making two of the same cards for different genders, more to have on hand!  My mother in law always asks for baby cards!   I made the boy one first than changed the buttons on the girl one, I prefer the way I did the buttons on the girl one!  I went with a soft lacey baby card.  Sometimes I like to leave the buttons bare with no thread, depends on my mood.  Or do you think buttons should always have thread and or twine?  

I hope you join us this week at Wee Memories, make sure to check it and see my talented DT sisters fabulous creations!
