Welcome Baby!

 My grandchildren have a new cousin!  I'm so excited because I never had cousins who lived nearby (they're all in Germany) and neither did my children (their only cousin is in Florida).  So my Charlie and his cousin Heidi are only 1 month apart in age (they're 3) and now new cousin Brady is 6 years younger than my Carter but only 2 days apart in birthday celebrations!  How cool is that!

SO, I got to use my new Stampin Up stamp, Bringing Baby!  I colored it with colored pencils and added some stickles to the magical stork.  It's cut out with Spellbinders' Big Scalloped Ovals LG.  The scrollwork is done using my Silhouette and the papers and flowers are just misc from my stash.  Oh! and I also used Martha Stewart's punch around the page punch.
I made a pink one for future use out of Stampin Up's Pink Pirouette:

In addition to putting this right in the mail, I am also entering it in the following challenges:

Vintage Christmas

All of a sudden I'm intrigued with the vintage look cards and thought I'd try one.  AND I'm moving right along with my Christmas card stash!  I'm not sure where I got this image in all my Google surfing adventures, but she has such a precious look.  I've paired her with SU Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom and brought out the color of her dress with some misc DP I had in my stash.  The tag is Spellbinder's Fancy Tags Three and the sentiment  is a digi by Fred She Said.  I'm entering this in the following challenges:
2 Sisters challenge: Anything Goes
Challenge up your life: Everything Goes
The Ribbon Girl : Ribbon, pearls, image
Craft Your Passion:  Anything Goes
