Illustration Friday: baby


My submission for Illustration Friday's "baby" is one of my Home Town greeting cards and it is a little storefront shop that displays wares for a new baby/babies. It is a die cut card and perfect for a baby shower gift for a new mommy. When you collect them all it makes a small town and a fun display.

Got the AWESOME pic you sent! I LOVE IT!!! Especially 'cuz you know that winter is my favorite season and I endure summers biding my time for the first snow. I love the picture so much that it brought tears to my eyes. I'm going to bring it to work so everyone can enjoy it.

CUTE! I would love to see them all displayed together...my son would like that, too...he loves the little houses at Christmas and such. He would have hours of fun playing with a town of cards! :) He's so creative anyway! Love this house and the colors you chose for it.

This is fabulous. The colors are perfect for any baby and the storefront is just charming. Collecting one of your little villages is a great idea...one by one by one.
