Boy Oh Boy! What a Suprise!!

Hi there and welcome to Julee Tilman's Surprise Baby Shower!!  If you live under a rock and hadn't heard the news, Julee and her hubby Mark are expecting IDENTICAL TWIN BOYS in March!  Such an exciting time!

If you arrived here from Tosh's blog, then you're in the right place!  If you've just happened along, you can head on over to Teresa's blog to start from the beginning!  


I thought long and hard about what advice I could offer Julee and Mark and here's what I came up with:

Julee:  Don't try to be Superwoman.  ACCEPT help when it is offered from others!  (see, I thought I was Superwoman and wouldn't accept help from others....please learn from my mistake!)

Mark:  CHANGE DIAPERS.......(my hubby wasn't a diaper changer thanks to my Superwoman attitude :)

LOL!  How's that for advice?

And here is my card for the twins....affectionately known as Jack and Moe.......



I used my fave all time baby set from Verve, To the Moon and paired it with some fun MME Miss Caroline "Dilly Dally" papers.  Jack and Moe (the bears) were colored with Copics and cut out.  I cut along their arms so I could "hang" them over the frame and the plaid flag.  The kite was tied to Jack's arm using twine.  The sentiment is actually just "Oh Boy"  To get the "Boy" on top, I simply masked the sentiment with scotch tape so I could stamp Boy....giving me "Boy Oh Boy."  Fitting for twins, dontcha think?   Some machine stitching a few adhesive gems finish the card!

Oh, and BTW....the sketch is today's Mojo Monday 229!   Isn't it a goodie?

Your next stop on this hop is to Betty's Blog!

Congratulations, Julee and Mark!  I'm so happy for the both of you!!!

What a sweet card and so clever with the twine around that bear. My mom used to do that to me...

Julee (Vervegirl) said...

Ack! Such an adorable card, Jackie! Love Jack & Moe (LOL) and how you tied the kite to his little arm! Thanks for the advice... I'm of the Superwoman mindset, so I think this will be very handy advice. :)

I love these bears...kinda asking myself WHY I don't have them already! :) Love how you have them hanging over the signs and I love the papers you used. I don't have those, but I think I'll be adding those to my list as well. Great card for Julee and Mark!

Wonderful baby boy card, cute but not cutesy. The colors are great and the kite is the perfect finish.

Super sweet Jackie...love those papers and the fabulous way you perfect your designs with stitched edges...looks fantastic!
Love your advice too, I started out as "Alpha" mom, but quickly decided that "Beta" mom was really what it was all about. :)
