Baby Love...

Aloha stampers!  Hope your week is going great.  Today is a sentimental day, my baby brother and my only brother, who is in the Navy set off on his 6th tour of duty aboard a Navy ship today.  He will be away for several months, not returning safely until mid 2013.  Sentimental because he and my sister-in-law are expecting their first child.  And they are having a baby girl! Unfortunately by the time he returns, the baby will be born.  But I'm sure we'll make sure he doesn't miss any special moments while he is away. I'm so excited for them.  I know they will be great parents. Excuse me while I wipe my tears of joy...

I shared these photos on my Facebook fan page (, they are from a photo session with a professional photographer.  I think the photos came out beautiful!  You can read more about the photo session Here.

So I thought it would also be fitting a share another card I created for the all catalog swap.  I used another new stamp set from the catalog, called "Two by Two".  This is a great stamp set to color and you can't beat the price, only $8.95 in wood mount.  Remember, you can order directly from my on-line store 24/7.  The item number is 126788. I used neutral colors in my design, just in case the other swappers want to use my card.  And do you see I used pennants again in my card-though the one on the left is a bit crooked! Part of the handmade look right.  Pennants and banners are popular!  The base of the card is early espresso but it's such a dark color that it's not easy to write on, so I decided to layer it with whisper white card stock.  You can see it better on the bottom photo.  Now when you personalize your card, it's easy to read.  

Now that I know my brother and sister-in-law are having a baby girl, I can make them a girl card!  Or maybe that's just my excuse to create something new! What about you, do you prefer to make gender specific baby cards or neutral ones? 

Well I better call it a night my friends, got a busy day tomorrow and irrigation in the evening.  Maybe I'll post some photos of my doggies playing in the water!  Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave me a comment, I love reading your comments!

Good night.

    I love the cards you made - the background colour is cheerful, and your colouring is great.
