Hey, Kit

Happy Friday, y'all!  The hubs and I were both saying yesterday that we were confused what day of the week it was; both of us thought yesterday was Wednesday for a while.  Don't know why but heyyyy Friday!

Ryan took a THREE-HOUR nap yesterday so I managed to make a couple of cards and work on a scrapbook layout.  So here's one of the cards I made:

A baby fox is a kit, right?  I think so.  Meet this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I loved Rita's foxy card so I was inspired to dust off Foxy Friends, which I haven't played with nearly enough.  Lucky for me, this week's Color Throwdown was foxy as well:

I used Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Tangerine Tango, and Pool Party for my colors.  I admit I didn't think "baby" when I first saw these fact, I hadn't decided on a sentiment when I put the rest of the card together.  So I just went through my stamps to find a sentiment that would fit right and that "hello, baby" from Baby Bear jumped out at me.  (The inside of the card says "welcome to the world!")  I thought hey, why not make this a baby card?  Honestly, these colors are pretty similar to Ryan's bedding in his nursery and I looooooove all the baby clothes with foxes on them.  So baby card!

Ryan and I are heading out in about 10 minutes to do our daily gym time.  Cheers, y'all!

They've definitely changed the colors for baby clothes. Used to, you'd NEVER see black on a baby. Now it is all the rage. And using more primary colors, too. Yarn for baby blankets hasn't changed so much with the times (in my normal brand), but I have seen some try to sneak in there. For a while, Anne Gedes, I believe, came out with some primary color baby yarn. I only saw it on the shelves for a short while, though.

I like your fox! Oh, I found another bear shirt for Ryan that he can wear when he's 3 -- it was on sale and I picked it up. It was also GREEN. Funny! Nice card, Kik!
