Waiting for Baby....

Hi Scrappers,

Another sketch challenge at Waltzingmouse this week - I decided to do a new baby boy card since a friend of mine is due to pop any second.  I wanted to get away from the usual baby blues and pastel colours:

I used my trusty Studio Calico mask again with some Glimmer Mist , embossed the red Echo Park paper and used my Fancy Phrases and Very Vintage Labels sets for the stamping. The journal spot is MME - I thought when the baby is born I could write his name, weight, length and birth date on it so the card can be kept as a keepsake.

Not much scrapping going on at the moment, although I had a lovely box of Kaisercraft goodies arrive yesterday as I was lucky enough to win last months Saturday sketch. (Thank you Kaisercraft!)  Don't you just love when those 12 x 12 boxes of scrappy stuff arrive?

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by,

Claire x
