The onesie outfits I cut on my cricut and are made using a textured cardstock to give the appearance of fabric.
The stamps are from a mixture of baby ones that I own.
Handprint - Inque Boutique
Feet - Paper Studio Girls Stamps
Boy/Girl - Grant Baby Stamps
Congratulations - Stamposaurous Ellie Set of clear stamps
Like many of my cards lately I have added a punched shape to the inside top right of the cards to coordinate with the front of the card. I think this is becoming a style signature of mine and means I can use my small punches more often.

Here is a cute little furry card that I made for my little nephew's 4th birthday. He just loves monkeys so this card from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge was perfect.
When I made the card I had planned to cut the parts of the monkey in separate colours and paper piece them together; but changed my mind when I remembered that I had some gorgeous chocolate brown and orange flocking and googly eyes in my stash.
The swirly happy birthday sentiment is the Sizzix Sizzlits Happy Birthday #3 die. I use this one mostly on girly cards, but I thought it looked so much like the monkeys tail that I just had to use it! I cut it using the same card I used behind the monkey.
