Baby Roundup

On Wednesday, I hit the 38 week mark in this pregnancy. I'm so close to done that it's scary. Today the baby measured 8 and a half pounds on the ultrasound. I'm expecting my OB to schedule an induction tomorrow. I have been feeling some contractions though so maybe I can get there on my own. Tonight we went out for dinner and I had Eggplant Rollatini and Eggplant Parmesan. I think it might be working...

Anyway, this was from the second batch of thank yous that I made. The jammies stamp is from A Muse. I think I got it on sale this summer because it was being retired. They do have a similar stamp in the current line though.

The baby bottle stamp is from Rubber Stampede. I bought it many years ago at Michaels when I first started stamping.

The blue Arturo note cards are from Ellen's store. All images were stamped with Palette Noir black ink and then watercolored with an aquapainter and my watercolor wonder crayons. Then I added a little bling with a clear copic spica glitter pen.

I might not be posting again for a few days. Hopefully the next post will have baby pictures!

Stamps: Sentiment and Jammies image from A Muse, Bottle image from Rubber Stampede
