Mom to Be...

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend. It was cold here again, which was actually fine by me as I've been sick with a cold for three days so I didn't need to go out anyway. Being sick also kept me from stamping, but I hope to do some over the next couple of days.

I do have a card to share today that I made last week for a friend. I just found out this person is having another baby and so I wanted to send her a "happy pregnancy" card!

I think this Bella image is perfect for this occasion! I colored her with Copics and added some white gel pen highlights. I used my circle Nesties to frame the image and then mounted that on Riding Hood Red cardstock and Washington Apple DSP, both from Stampin' Up!. The accents are some gel pen dots and doodles, grosgrain ribbon, a clip with the sentiment (also SU!) and some flowers. I made the red flower with a punch and then added this clear flower and button on top.

Thanks for dropping by! Have a super Monday, I'm off to lay down and watch a movie with my daughter. Happy Stamping!! :)

ETA:
I forgot that this card also fits last week's A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge, OH Baby!
