Anything But a Card: Baby Gift edition

Anything But a Card - I love Mondays!  They make me think OUTSIDE of the box!

A few months ago Glen's cousin and her husband adopted a sweet baby girl.  And because in our family, there is very little we buy, if we can make it (IE: cards, fun pillowcases, scarves, wool slippers, baby blankets and ONSIES.)

Well today, I wanted to share with you the Onsies I whipped up as part of the baby gift bag.
These are the onsies together -
And here are the close up photos of each onsie, complete with Bugaboo cute Images!


Images - Bugaboo Stamps - 
Coloring - GIMP
Tools - Printer to print heat transfer & Iron
Extra Stuff - Blank Onsies from JoAnn & Heat Transfer paper

Thanks so much for visiting today! 
Hoping you are enjoying the Spring weather that is slowly moving in!

Anything But a Card: Announcement Edition

It's an ABC Monday at The Bug.

I thought I'd share with you now that our families know - we're getting a baby in our house.
Coming Soon - August 30th
And we are BEYOND excited!
Here's one of the first pictures we had taken - this was at 8 weeks, 3 days
Since then, we've had a few more pics taken and through a genetic test (that thankfully then avoids us having to have an amino - big darn needle through the belly test).  We celebrated 18 weeks this past Saturday, have our 18 week Ultrasound tomorrow.
I digress - which seems to be the case very much lately.  Anyway, through the genetic test, we found out at 13 weeks that we're having a GIRL!!
So, back to today's ABC - when we found out we were pregnant, we wanted to tell the grand parents in a fun way.....enter gift bag and baby bottle, complete with the announcement tucked inside.
Papers - Kraft & Miscellaneous printer & Image paper
Tools - Cuttlebug & Nesties
Extra STUFF - Ribbon to attach the Tag

So, that's what's new in our neck of the woods :)
Hugs & Happy Days!
