It's fun to have a little baby to cuddle and play with. It's also fun to plan for the baby's arrival. As a close friend or family member, you might have to plan a baby shower. There are so many choices of invitations. If you don't know the gender of the baby, you can choose an adorable basic picture like the one above. Ten little toes are a perfect symbol to reflect on the simple cuteness a baby brings to the world. You can keep your theme going by adding the same image to favors and thank you cards. It's a perfect way to begin your baby's scrapbook.

Each of the panels can be customized with pictures, birth facts, quotes and more. Each of their designs are completely customizable.

Do you want to celebrate a friend's birth in a unique way? Consider the It's a Boy! and It's a Girl! Gardens-in-a-Bag at Wishing Fish.

As I mentioned, I recently bought some Mommy cards. After doing some research, I eventually decided to buy my cards from Fruition Designs. They have a bunch of great Mommy card designs, so it was a hard decision choosing which one I liked the best. After considering both the Maureen Day and the Beverly Mason designs, I eventually chose the latter. However, since I only have a boy, I really wanted to not have pink in my cards. I emailed the company asking if a color change was possible, and they were more than accommodating. Soon a proof was sent over for me to see. I was told that if I didn't like the blue shown I could choose another color blue, but I really liked what I saw and placed my order. I would show you all, but then you'd know my home address, and that's just creepy!

Tucker Paisley, whom I wrote about in April, sent me a cardholder to try out. I was quite excited as I really wanted to buy Mommy cards now that we just bought a house in a new place. This got me into gear to buy some Mommy cards so that I could use the card holder. The one I received is cream with a red design. It is lined in red satin and is quite stylish. I love using it!

I just discovered Tucker Paisley, and I have fallen in love with this company. I wrote about them on Shirt Snob last week because they have awesome purses (check out the Sue-Sue, their diaper bag), but what I have to share with you are their Card Holders. Since we're buying a home in a new town, I want to buy some mommy cards to hand out as I meet other moms. And I really want one of these card holders for the cards. They are so stylish and I love the color combinations. You can also use it as a mini wallet too.
