Wild about You Baby!

Our oldest niece and her husband  - on my husband's side of the family just had their first baby.  So, I'm a "great-aunt" again!  (I think I'm a great as in awesome aunt...but GREAT AUNT sounds so old!)  My husband's siblings range in age from 10 years older than him, 6 years older than him and then 8 years younger.  It makes for a very spread out family.  So, I have a niece having a baby, and one who's just  4.

But for this new little great-nephew I bought some cute baby clothes...and I better get them sent FAST because he's growing like crazy!

Here's his card:

I played around with this weeks TSG Sketch (flipped), and this very fun Zoopendous set from TSG.  I love the little pair of rhinos snuggling :)  I colored them up with Copics, giving the parent rhino a light blue tone to help receed into the background a little.  

Here's the sketch - and you can see how I flipped it.  



Pretty cute right?  I used Authentique's Loyal for the papers.  

Gotta run!  We've had a dripping toilet in our bathroom that we didn't know about.  Yeah.  Damage upstairs and down....which means some fixing in our future.  :(  

Copics:  W00, W1, W3, W5, R00, B21

Adorable, like how you turned the sketch, cute buttons and image.
Your husbands family sounds like mine, my Oldest brother is 14 years older than me and my youngest is 4 years younder than me, my nephew was born 5 years after my brother.
Good luck with getting your toilet situation fixed
