The lulu-Day 1 of TE Sneak Peeks for May!


Today I'm sharing a new à la carte image I illustrated for the Whimsical Wishes line...welcome BABY. This is a HUGE release (maybe they'll just keep getting bigger as Taylor's belly grows *WINK*), so I'm sure the Baker's Dozen has LOTS to show today. I have one simple card that combines paper piecing, colouring with copics and a modifed Sweet Sunday sketch (SSSC113):


I added crystal effects to and popped up the 'lulu' (that's what we called it). Imagine a clean, shiny soother out of the package and ready for baby...not the kind that has been sucked, chewed, dropped and used to probe the world around!! I thought I'd share a few favourite pictures of my Henri when he was smaller with his lulu...






He loved that thing and only parted with it last summer when we launched it on a rocket at the cottage! Here are the Taylored impression plates and dies I've used on my card today:


Can't wait to see what the TEDT has created for today...

Super cute, Nancy! I love the stars in the background and the fabulous stitching detail! And I've never heard of calling it a lulu before... that's fun! My husband's family calls it a 'paci' and it was always called a 'binki' in my house. So we'll see where we end up! :)

LOVE this one! The colors and paper piecing are perfect and I adore the photos of Henri. My kiddos never took a 'lulu', they were all obsessed with their fingers and thumb! haha! So Darling.
