Here for You Baby Bird

I have a new.......Niece? Nephew?

Honestly - I don't know yet! My brother and sister-in-law had their baby this morning! She was induced a couple of weeks early, too much baby....too little of a mama. And my brother called to tell that the baby was born BUT WON'T TELL US if it's a boy or girl. He said we have to come see! What kind of person does that? Huh??? And I can't go without the kids, who won't be home till later this afternoon. Crazy. So, I'm a new Auntie, I'll tell you tomorrow who this little person is.

So, for the color challenge today I made a card for my sis in law and my brother. I'm going this afternoon to get some *new parent* items for a basket. You know all those little things that you might not know you need that are helpful.

The colors today were Kiwi Kiss, Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip.


I watercolored these pretty flowers before popping that baby bird on top, I saw a really pretty card by Mary Jo Albright using the plants this way. I also love the look of the out of the box spray of flowers too.

The Pink Passion layer is sponged and has the damask stamp stamped on it, and the friends wheel is on the Kiwi Kiss base.

Labels Sizzix die for the sentiment, a few buttons and retired satin ribbon, and a whole lot of layers and it's a lovely card.


Lots to do....still knitting that blanket for them (about 1/2 way done) and I still have to get started on the rest of the 50 Baby Thank you cards! I really did not expect the baby this early...though I did tell her on Friday I thought she'd be induced early....look at that I was right!

Congrats!! I would be ringing my brothers neck if he did that to me. Those brothers just keep finding new ways to torture us don't they?
