Welcome Baby

Just a quick post today before I run out the door!  But first, has anyone noticed that the word verifications on peoples' blogs are easier to spell?  Or I am just imagining it?  It used to bug me because they would string 10 squiggly letters together and I would always type them it seems they have more vowels and they are easier to type.  I like it!  But maybe it's just me.

Anyway, I rarely need baby cards....I guess most of my friends are either past or prior to having babies!  But I do have a friend at church who is having her third, so we are visiting her tonight for a little surprise impromptu shower!  She doesn't know the gender, so that makes it a bit more challenging, but she wants a cross stitch sampler after the baby is born, so one of my gifts to her is to do a cross stitch.  So I made a little "gift certificate" and put it in this card.  It uses a retired SU set, Feathered Friends and some retired Prints DP.  She is a very "green" person and I think her style is probably plain & simple, so I kept the card fairly simple too.  I only wish I hadn't used Confetti paper---that big "confetti" at the top of the card bugs me!  Oh well!  Thanks for visiting!

What a wonderful 'neutral' card. You are so sweet to promise a crosstich once the baby is here.

LOL!! I'm the same way about that Confetti paper!! I have even "not" used a piece because of a big, fat flake right in plain view! I really got a chuckle out of that comment :-) But your card is adorable. I doubt that she will notice the flake at the top, only us anal stampers!!! Thanks for sharing!

Your baby card here is adorable! The coloring is fantastic!
I had to laugh about the word verification talk because I'm always messing those things up, it makes me feel like I have dyslexia, lol!
