SuperBabyBoy and Girl!

The current two-week challenge at Hambo Stamps' Hoedown is to make a baby card using unexpected images. When I remembered these tiny safety pins in my stash, I decided to transform Hambo's Wee Henry Hero digi  into a much younger character-- a SuperBaby Boy. Sorry, Wee Henry but your little superhero costume is now a cloth diaper and baby blankie cape!


I had so much fun I had to make a SuperBabyGirl, complete with one of those little bows Moms stick on their baby's head so everyone knows she's a girl! (It's actually a Martha Stewart Butterflies punch, but it works!)
I have a soft spot in my heart for baby blankets. My own attachment to my blanket is the stuff of my family's legends. By the time my Mom and Dad tried to sneak it into the rag box, it was little more than threadbare fabric and worn silky trim. But I would not be parted with it (or my thumb). I'm not sure how old I was when I gave it up; it's probably better that I can't remember, lol!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had fun.

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Come back soon.

These are two of the best little babies I've seen in quite a while. Terrific use for those darling little safety pins. Great backgrounds on both. Loved your blanket story. I had a nephew that always had his blanket with him. His Mom thought it would be going to college with him but he did finally give it up. She saved what was left of it and gave it to him when he got married. He got the biggest kick out of that. Enjoy your Sunday.

OMG these are both just too cute for words! I'd have to pick the girl as my favorite, but gosh they are both so flipping adorable. Pure awesomeness! Thanks so much for joining us at the Hambo Hoedown.

Peace & Luv,

These are simply adorable! It's amazing how the right embellishment can change an entire image. I love how you had a girl one, too.

Very Clever! Who knew he was so versatile! I love the butterfly hair bow. So funny that it only takes a bow and wee henry is wee Henrietta! Thanks for joining the Hoedown this week!
