Pink and Black and Babies

I LOVE pink and black together...especially for baby girls. My daughter's best friend's baby shower was yesterday. She is having a little girl. I'm so excited for you, Tricia!

My friend, Jenny makes the most darling car seat/carrier covers. She is one of my Play Groupies (see left side of my blog for Play Group information) and so we made a great trade last month: scrapbook supplies for car seat cover. I chose a pink and black one to give to Tricia and her soon-to-be-born baby girl. You can see photos of another car seat cover she made and how they work here on her blog. Too stinkin' cute! I'm not sure if she hires out, but I'll bet she does. If you are dying for a car seat cover of your own, just comment on her blog with your contact info. I'm sure she'll get back to you. Jenny, I hope it's okay if I just sent some business your way!

Now for the card...What is a girl to do? It must match, don't you think? Well, I was blog surfing Saturday morning and found a beautiful card design on my friend Laurel's blog. She was inspired by a sketch from this blog. Thanks, Laurel! So, to work I went.

The photo you see here shows the card sitting on top of the car seat cover. I love how the top of the cover is black and white and the underneath is pink. The edging is done in typical "Jenny-style"...it's a perfectly stitched line of hearts (even when scrapbooking, Jenny is all about the details around the edges). The handles sport the CUTEST pink daisies which are removable so you can wash the cover, and they even have little clips on them so you can add them to a headband and baby can wear a flower on her head (like Daci has in this photo). Scrumptious!
