New Baby

Starting to get back into the swing of things...I have been avoiding my craft room for awhile.  I've been missing my crafting buddy, Schmitzy. 
He would stay with me all evening.  For months I had to doctor his back every night, so actually it is surprising that he would want to stay with me!  But we got really close during that time (almost 10 months).  Now Sammie comes and goes and Sadie pesters me for treats (her meds make her constantly hungry). Geena Bea won't even come into the room without coaxing her with a treat!  So I get lonesome at the back of the house when everyone else is with daddy.  So I am trying to get myself back in the room, even if I have to be by myself.
Tonight I have a baby card to share.  A girl at work is pregnant with her first child.  I didn't find out she was pregnant until I got the shower announcement (she moved to the building next store but is still in our dept.).  Well, I am known for my baby afghans, so I had to get busy.  So some of the time I have spent away from my room has been for crocheting.  It's been a good excuse while I was avoiding my craft room since I was using up some of my yarn stash and NOT buying more stamping stuff.
I used the sketch over at i {heart} card sketches The ribbon is from SU!, dp is DCWV, the image is my go to quick baby card stamp from Stampendous.  I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with The World's Greatest Embossing Powder from Stampamania in Desert Rain.  Spellbinders were used to cut out the image.
I am also entering the following challenges:
