Hello Baby!

Tonights card will soon be on its way to Kansas.  My friend EJ (who is an awesome follower of this blog) a friend from college just had a little boy today!  I hope she's resting and not trying to keep her blog and the blogs she follows up to date :)

I do enjoy how this little guy turned out-- however, as I am making cards and I am trying super duper hard to use up my scraps I have noticed that many of my cards are starting to all look alike-- perhaps I will have to take the plunge and cut into some new paper...hmmm we'll see I guess!

So I cut the little stork out from my new Gypsy--wowzers--that is quite the device let me tell you!  I kinda love it!  So I'm not sure what size I actually cut him out at nor the layers as I just set it to fit the size scraps I had lying around.  But wow...again the Gypsy rocks my socks off!  Thanks hubby!  I will also be adding this card to challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion.  The theme for the challenge is "New Arrival" and I think my stork is perfect!

Recipe
