New Kid on the Block Baby Card

Happy Thursday friends!  Today's post is special.  Creating handmade cards is still one of my most favorite things to do.  I have not shared a handmade card I created for my blog in years.  Guys!  I'm so excited.  I created a card and I wanted to share it with you. 
To my surprise, I received happy mail from Derwent.  Who doesn't love to receive happy mail?  So happy when I came home to this wonderful Derwent Procolour Pencil set, they store perfectly in a metal tin, great when trying to keep everything organized. 


When first seeing these pencils, knew I wanted to create something special.  It seems I attend lots of baby showers this time of year, and this baby card is perfect - for boy or girl.  It's easy to create, make one or several.  Let's start by sharing the list of supplies I used to complete this project.
