When we first told our family that we were expecting, we were flooded with cards of congratulations and even a couple gift cards for maternity clothes. Well, I finally went maternity shopping a couple weeks ago and I'm faced with the fact that these thank yous are well overdue!
This layout for this card comes from one of Lauren Meader's Saturday Sketches (number 3 to be exact). I really wanted to use this new patterned paper I bought over the weekend and this sketch was perfect.
Speaking of the paper, it is from Paper Salon and is called Harmony: Stripes and Harmony: Petite Paisley. Isn't it too cute? I bought this paper at a brand new scrapbooking store in the same town I work in. How cool is that? I can get there in 10 minutes on my lunch break. That is going to be dangerous! Anyway, the store is called Momento and it is really nice! They even had some copic markers in stock so I was able to play with them a little. I'm going to hold off to see if they offer a class before taking that leap.
Anyway, the main image is expectafellabella from Stamping Bella. I was super excited about this one because this bella has the same haircut as me -- short & straight. The guy kind of looks like my husband too so it was too perfect! I stamped the happy couple on watercolor paper with Palette Noir black ink and then water colored them with my watercolor wonder crayons.
The sentiment is from the Seeing Spots set from Stampin' Up! I then stamped the little diaper pin from Short & Sweet which fit in the center perfectly.
