Happy birthday, Baby Blossoms!

Debra Burgin Happy birthday baby blossomsWouldn’t that be a great nickname for a baby?  We call our little DGS (five months old today):

  • Chuka
  • Junge
  • Mr. P
  • Master Peter (spoken with a British accent, in the manner of the Cratchit family)
  • Punkin (who doesn’t?)
  • Stinker

He’ll grow out of those last two, most likely.  The first two?  Norwegian (from DH) and German (from me).  I can’t really find that chuka is a word, but both of us were raised with colorful family expressions that were no doubt a corruption of the originals.  That doesn’t stop us.  Watch out, baby Peter, you’ve got a whole new vocabulary ahead of you!

Chuka is used to describe someone who has legs like these:

I wanted to create that peek-a-book look in the middle of the frame, but didn’t want to cut the center out by hand, so I punched it.  It’s not quite the right oval, but I’m satisfied.

    I think it’s clever to punch out the oval center of the 4 frames punched card embellishment (that’s a lot of dangling participles and too many adjectives, I know) but it’s soooo clever of you!

  5. Beautiful card. I really like how you added the sentiment. It looks like it’s floating in the center of the frame.

  7. I love what you did with the center of the frame! Great idea! And those little legs are just awesome! Just want to squish ’em!
