Hello, Baby!

The birth of a child is so exciting. It seems like yesterday that my daughter Molly was born, but it was 18 months ago. How the time has flown! She's such a little person now. The other night when I asked her: "Molly, do you want to get out of the bath and go to bed? She looked at me very seriously and said: "No, mommy." Sorry, Molly – I shouldn't have asked! I didn't know you were really going to tell me what you thought about it.

How do you welcome a baby? My friend from camp Amanda Tarter just had a baby boy named Ryder. Wouldn't it be fabulous to send her this card? Designer Kelley Eubanks stamped "It's a Boy!" over and over using the stamp from the PSA Carriage collection. The little outfit stamped is also from that Peel & Stick pack. Kelley's hooked on twine right now. Does it show in the two cards below?

The next card, also by Kelley, is a great gender neutral. It would be great to give at a shower when you don't know the baby's gender. The orange, blue and yellow on the white background is a perfect color combination, each element pops off the page.

Stephanie Jones used her PSA Essentials personalized Peel & Stick stamp to create this adorable card to welcome a girl. Her personalized stamp reads, "From the Jones Family, With Love." Inside the card, she can write a note to the new parents welcoming the baby from her family! It's personalized stationery, even more personalized!
