New Parents!!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! Yay its the weekend---wahoo!! I'm off today at my daughter's District Chorus concert and then meeting up with hubby. Hubby is wrangling my son & his friends at laser tag today and then we're meeting up to have pizza. Two of the boys will be spending the night to round out my son's birthday events!! What a Valentine's Day right? Actually I'm not into Valentine's Day that much---I've been married for almost 14 years now & I've always told my hubby that Valentine's Day should be everyday, lol!! The kids always get "Cupid" gifts but I'm more of a practical girl--no flowers or candy for me! I want stamp supplies, a new scanner and Japanese for dinner, LOL! We'll see if hubby comes thru..... :o)

Okay, sorry about the title of the post---but no, we're not expecting, thank goodness! My years of having babies are over--I like to borrow friend's babies and then give them back, lol!! But I still have lots of friends who are in the "baby years" so I can always use a great baby card. H&M Stamp Co. makes a wonderful stamp set that includes images for new parents, expecting parents and baby showers called "Miracle From Above". I love this image--such a peacful & serene looking new mom!

I used this past week's Mojo Monday sketch #73(I flipped it)--it's such a great sketch and so versatile too! All my papers are from SU (baja breeze) which is such a soft and neutral color for this kind of card. I colored her with Copics and then added Angel Wingz Shimmerz on her shirt for some nice shimmer. The pearls in the corner are from Kaiser and the color "Bliss" matches Baja Breeze perfectly (lovee pearls)!

If you didn't get a chance to check out the new stamp line "Anki's Sweethearts for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design"--make sure and check them out HERE. They are super sweet & super cute!!

Hope you have a super Valentine's Day (if you're celebrating) and a wonderful weekend! See ya back here on Monday!
