It's Not All Black and White

Birdie Mom

I sat down with no particular card in mind, but I did want to use this really cute Mom stamp from Queen for a Day. And I also wanted to use my bird on a branch punch that has gone unloved since it arrived. Now that I'm done, I think it could be for "your mom" obviously, but wouldn't it also be cute for a new mom? I just love how it turned out with some of my favorite papers, colors, and yummy polka dots.

What's In It?
Stamps- Queen for a Day (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper- white (PTI), old olive (SU), Ooh La La for Her (MME)
Ink- black Memento, saffron SU
Other- SU bird punch, AC ribbon, Labels 4 die, sponge, dimensionals, Taylors tiny twinkles, PTI holiday mix buttons, thread, needle, sewing machine, copics

I'm sorry that I forgot to get back to you about last week's ultrasound. It was Friday afternoon, and baby is doing just fine, thank goodness. Of course, I got no definite answer on the age old boy/girl question. I simply can't imagine my child being obstinate and not giving us a clear view, but we're pretty sure it's a girl! Just no painting the nursery pink or buying clothes yet since it's not a sure thing.
