Good evening! I had a few minutes this evening to sit down and make a card. I've had a baby card stuck in my head for the last few days. My cousin Timmy called the other day to announce that he and his wife are expecting their first kiddo! WOW! Timmy is my age and we literally grew up more as brother and sister than cousins, so this feels so extremely special. Plus, I absolutely love Erin, his wife. They're due in October, so we've got a little wait... And this most definitely needed to be a gender neutral card. :) This card's going out in the mail tomorrow.
I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch for my layout. I love the square background panels. I fiddled a bit with making them two different colors, but settled with just the one to keep things a bit more simple. I paper pieced the baby carriage from the same Pretty Pastels dp. Some tiny dollops of stardust stickles to the polka dots and heart added just a little bit of sparkle.
Can I just say I am soooo glad it will be Friday tomorrow? Weeks back at work after a vacation always are tiring. Those four days off were wonderful, but they sure throw my everyday routine out of whack. Especially my sleep schedule. And having the Olympics to watch each night really isn't helping in that department.... But I can't miss the Olympics! I usually give in around 10:15 and push record. The tricky part is finding time the next day to watch the tape before the new coverage comes on for the night, lol. On top of all of that, we had two late nights at work- Science Fair and Talent Show. It's so fun to be there and witness my kids' creativity, but it sure makes for looooong work days!
I'm off to Disneyland again this Saturday to hear my roomie play. One of her chamber groups will be playing in Carnation Plaza late morning. Fun! It's supposed to be raining again, so maybe that will keep the crowds down.
