Welcome, Baby Girl

One of my girlfriends from college just had her first baby this summer and I couldn't wait to send off baby girl clothes. Oh, how I miss buying little girl clothes. My DD10 is starting to have her own opinion on clothes and while they're still way cuter than boy clothes, they're just not as adorable as those little girl outfits. Boy clothes, while much cheaper, are just no fun at all. I was at Younker's today (local department store) and the only choices for boys' casual wear was all athletic stuff. Not a single "nice" shirt for pictures to be found anywhere. What's up with that? Anyway, enough of my babbling, onto the card...

 Some more argyle...

The argyle is so wonderful on this card and boy oh boy do I love the ribbon on this card ..... you are going to make a mommy very happy!!! I have the same problem with clothes for Anton...... I shop at Mini Boden because they have cool stuff and amazing quality so he can be as rough as he like!!! And I like the Gap too....... I try to combine with the girls clothes and get free shipping and then there is no tax either so it works out pretty well. I totally agree with boys clothes!!! STRESSFUL!!!

This is a beautiful card and I love how it is a non-traditional size.

I get most of my son's collared shirts at Target. They are nice and pretty cheap too. Do you have a Target up there? (I'm in Texas)

Oh Jennifer, this is perfect! Sweet but not too sugary sweet, I love the colours and the ribbon treatment, that argyle is fab! Love everything about this in fact, right down to just the right amount of decoration on the inside!
