Hello Baby

Friends of ours are expecting their first grandchild anytime now so I've got baby on my mind. I finally finished two cards that I've been working on for a week now, thank goodness, so I relaxed with a good CAS card. IRL the background is so much brighter its so adorable! I used the cloud template from Stampin Up and sponged bashful blue and pretty in pink clouds. Come on baby, lol! I hope by the time this post is published she'll be here. (Just checked at 8:30am and still not here!) I've entered this into:
