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:
