Babies....

It's been a good summer for babies this year in our family. First, my niece Amy (my younger sister's daughter),  had Logan Michael, then little Emma Marie (older sister's granddaughter), came along, and there's a baby coming in September too. My son and his wife are expecting baby #4...and this one's a surprise. Babies. How cool are they?!!

Also expecting this summer was Melissa over at CASology, who after three little cutie pie boys, had a sweet little baby girl yesterday. Nothing makes me smile more than new babies. Head on over to CASology for the baby's deets, and to check out what the DT has done; then you can link up a card too and offer her blessings and congratulations. So, if you read this Melissa, God bless your family and congratulations of the birth of a healthy daughter.

And I thought I'd make a card. I'm not quite sure how it turned out. I've been on a migraine run for a few days now, and the meds I take make me a little loopy, so if this card isn't what it should be, let me know...heaven knows I've tried.


Bad lighting and no matter what I tried in Picasa, it still looks bad. Seriously better irl.  Bazzill white base, scraps of pink and green. SU flowers and leaves. The letters have been stamped with AE Texture Tiles: Be Cool, then cut with the Silhouette Cameo. Some Studio G ink. Rounded corners and scalloped edges. Happy dances everyone

Babies are the best news especially in times when news always seems to be bad and/or sad. Such a celebration of a new life, a perfectly clean canvas full of potential. It really makes you think anything's possible! And you're experiencing it over and over again! Love your pretty card with the dimensional flowers! Thanks for coming to Bryna's baby shower!

Oh boy, I hope your migraines leave you alone while you're crafting at least! Hooray on all the new babies coming. Isn't that the most exciting thing? Christmases in our family just keep getting bigger and bigger.
