Welcome's a boy!

After many long days, hello again everyone!  Kathy did such an outstanding job keeping up the blog during my hiatus--and she made such lovely cards.  I could tell she had some great inspiration mojo going on.

Well...BIG BIG NEWS!  Last Saturday, not only did my girls come back home after a long summer vacation, but my sister finally gave a boy!  I am an aunt! AND a godmother!  It was such a happy day...I can't wait to meet this little one unfortunately it won't be until January.  He is beautiful...and from what I hear such a wonderful calm sweet (and quite strong) baby.  He was already trying to lift his head as the nurses were trying to bathe him to everyone's amazement.    7 lbs 15 oz.  20 inches long.  Welcome to the world Peter Adrian.

So, this card that I am featuring today is, of course, a Welcome baby card.  The sketch I was inspired by was the Sketch and Stash sketch Challenge #119.  The paper from the stroller is nice and sparkly!  Inside it's stamped: Babies are such a nice way to start people, Welcome Baby

Til tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!  Margaret
