TAC - Baby Card and Thank You

Today, I have a baby shower card and matching thank you cards. This baby shower was actually a card shower - just cards no gifts.  Love card showers although I really love going shopping for a new baby too. :D

Some friends are adopting a little girl and will be traveling later this month to China to get her and bring her home. This is my card for the card shower.  I used TAC Wee Ones, which was a super cute set.  I colored the images with Copic markers then cut them out.   
The images are suspended from white cross stitch floss to create a mobile of baby things.  I saw this mobile idea on Karen's Blog and it uses Retro Sketch #33.  Inside there is a Target gift card which completes the card and theme.
I also made 12 super simple Thank You cards as an added gift.  I used the same patterned cardstock I used for my card.  The cardstock is from Cloud9 Designs, called 'Dee's Cottage'.  The Thank You sentiment is from TAC I heart You, available at RRD. The hearts are cut with a Lil' Inkers Designs die.  Love the stitching on the hearts.
