Everyone Loves a Convertible - FMS 141









I am still playing with that Something for Baby set - so many wonderful images!  I embellished the card with the flower and hearts from Pictogram Punches and the result  is a sweet card for a baby girl.  I like to make my cards with a specific person in mind and the soon-to-be mom who will be receiving this has chosen not to find out until delivery whether the baby is a boy or a girl.  So I stamped a carriage and a banner in Coastal Cabana and will simply overlay the pieces and convert the card if it's a boy!






My husband just didn't get it.  He said "Why don't you just make two cards?" I really don't like to make multiples and besides everyone loves a convertible.......



              Cindy Hall created a beautifully framed sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

WOWZERS!!! I see you did Cindy's sketch and what a card this is! It's probably the best so far I've seen using this set. Love it! What a super idea to change it up depending on boy or girl. Convertible...of course! I have to CASE this for my July camp. We never make baby cards, but this set with matching "bundle" framelits is a great set for sure. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card with us! Hugs!

A convertible card - love it! Both versions of this card are adorable - I really love that carriage and your color choice are fab!

That is a very clever idea! I don't like making duplicates either - one and done in my book! Sounds like your husband needs a lesson in crafty frugality!
