Baby Shower Invitations

I was asked by a co-worker to make some baby shower invitations for a  baby shower she is hosting. So, I got right to work! I came up with 3 cute invitations. She forgot to inform me that they had a specific theme for the baby shower, so the 3 that I first made weren't going to work.
Here is a picture of those 3:

So, back to the drawing board I went. Now that I know of the theme, "April Showers...bring June babies". April showers brought to mind rain and a umbrella. Babies bring to mind soft colors. Here is the final invitation..I've been diligently working on 27 invitations :)

Stampin' Up Card

These are 2 cards I made recently with my new Stampin' Up stamps I got from Ebay. Oh my gosh...I love these stamps :) I've never owned more than just a few odd's and end's Stampin' Up stamps, until now. I decided to try and sell some of my "old" scrapbooking items on Ebay. I basically just wanted to know how the selling part went. So....within the first 1.5 hrs, almost everything I had posted, sold. I was super excited! With the $$ from that I bought the kids some jeans & shirts and then I bought my hubby some Fox brand shirts & sweatshirt. With the remainder I bought some scrapbooking/card making supplies off Ebay.
