Shhhh! It’s a FMS Surprise!

 DSCF0861
Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Today is a VERY SPECIAL day, because we are honoring a sweet mom-to-be, Rita Wright!   Lesley and some of her crafty friends over at Freshly Made Sketches are giving Rita her very own BLOG HOP!! Woohoo!  If you came from Kathy’s blog, you may already know all about it; you can find all the details at the FMS blog and start from the beginning if you like!  And Rita didn’t even know it, but she supplied the sketch for her own blog hop!  Here it is:

Knowing that Rita and her DH are having a little girl, but that she is not that fond of pink, I chose to use a new set called Betsy’s Blossoms and some retired Sweet Shop paper:
FMS37-LeAnne
I also used the new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and die, as well as the retired PS: I Love You.

And featured some more of both sets on the inside:

Do you want to honor our special friend Rita?  Play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches with your baby or congrats card!  Rita will be thrilled!  Now, if you want to continue on the hop, Lesley is next on the stop!  And here is a complete list of all the designers today – you won’t want to miss any of them!
Thanks for visiting today!
