Bundle Of Joy!

Hello! Happy Monday, everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I have some exciting news to share! But first, let's talk about my card! :)

This week at Lollipop Crafts, it's an ANYTHING NEW GOES challenge! You can interpret it any way you like!

I used Some Odd Girls' Baby Snuggle Kaylee on this card. I used My Mind's Eye Happy Go Lucky Papers. I used my new sentiment set by Papertrey Ink.

I messed up at coloring Kaylee's skin tone so I had to change it to a darker tone. I am not used to coloring dark skin....definitely a great chance for me to practice! LOL

Can anyone guess why I choose to make a "baby" card? :) I usually go with Birthday cards or Holiday cards. LOL I rarely make baby cards. They do come in handy though.

I have been keeping a secret from you guys all these months! I am expecting! Baby boy will be here in May! This explains why the lack of blog visits, comments, posts, tiredness, etc, etc. LOL I even took a week off work just to rest up! I felt great doing NOTHING for a week! LOL

I got off most of my DTs except for Sparkle Creations. I just couldn't find time to craft as much as before. Plus, the smell of the zip dry glue is too strong for me. I don't think it's even good for the baby! LOL Anyway, I do plan to post here and there when I get a chance. I will try my best to visit everyone too! When the baby comes, I do plan to take some time off blogging. I may have to make some changes then so I may cut back on blogging, computer time and so forth.

Thank you all so very much for stopping by my blog even when I couldn't visit you guys! I really appreciate it!

Some Odd Girls: Bling Me

Oh Kim, what wonderful and exciting news--congratulations!!! Yes, little babies do take up a lot of your time so I can definitely understand the need to cut down on blogging time. :) Take care sweetie! And your card is beautiful--I'm partial to your Kaylee image myself and your coloring is wonderful!
