I'm so very excited- it's finally time! My lovely postlady dropped off not just one package I was expecting today, but a bunch of packages which I wasn't sure when would arrive... a big WHOOT WHOOT! Now I can finally post my announcement, and, following this post will be my post for celebratory blog candy.
There's a new baby on the way! Hubby and I are expecting our sixth, and last, precious bundle around mid-December. I've been waiting for test results which have thankfully come back normal so far (still have my 20 week anatomy scan at the end of next month). This has been a huge relief since quite frankly, I'm not much of a spring chicken any longer lol. But I was also waiting on my MIL to receive her card that I made for the gender announcement:
If all the blue didn't give it away, I am finally having another boy! Yay! After 17 years and three gorgeous girls, I am so very excited to be having another bouncing baby boy.
So, about the card! This card was very heavily inspired (with permission) by the Stampin for the Weekend challenge blog's owner, Rebekah. I stalk her blog frequently as I just love her cards! Check out her gorgeous work and leave some love :)
Papers are from the Vintage Summer Basics by Maja Design. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Beaded stamens and chrysanthemums by Kort and Godt are from The Ribbon Girl. Bark Heart is from Live and Love Crafts. There's also an adage ticket by Tim Holtz, and some scattered pearls here and there. I used Cheery Lynn's Eastern Star Doily die, cut in half to hopefully resemble a large heart. There is also the Stitched Tabs die and Heart Banner die, both by La-La Land Crafts. The beautiful blue lace peeking out under the flowers is from my sweet (and very talented) blogging friend Dianne, who's blog can be found here. The digi stamp is called Bebe, by Sugar Nellie which was colored with Copics.
I do hope you will all join in my "it's a boy" blog candy celebration which is located here! I had so much fun picking everything out specifically for this occasion... especially since hubby said it's too early to be clothes shopping. But shhh... I did a little of that too LOL
Wishing you all a fantastic rest of the week!
