Congratulations Baby!

I have been wanting to send my daughter and son-in-law a Congratulations card on their new, upcoming baby (due in July) but between work and not knowing what to make (I wanted to make it special) I haven't done anything....until this past weekend.  I found on Stampin' Anne's blog the perfect card!  She had used this sketch for her card:

And she came up with this card:

Isn't is adorable???  They don't know what their baby is so I wanted to use blue and pink in the card and I didn't have some of the supplies Stampin' Anne used so I used the same layout and the same stamp set Baby Bundle from SU!, some retired SU! DSP paper, SU!'s baja breeze, and pretty in pink cardstock and came up with my version:

I think my card turned out cute, even if I don't color too well! 

I added some tiny rhinestones for a little bling and don't you just love these tiny hearts all lined up?

I finished the inside pretty simple and jotted a note to them how excited I am and can't wait til summer!

Speaking of summer, we have been having summer like weather in Nebraska.  This week we have had records broken for high's and today it was a balmy 64 degrees when I left work but all of that is going to change on Friday.  The local forecast calls for snow and WIND (which does not mix good).  Our weatherman said the worst will be in the heart of central Nebraska. Well, guess where we live??? Can you guess??? Yes, we are in the heart of central Nebraska!  I am scheduled to work Saturday and who knows, I might not make it to town.  I will have to keep you informed if I make it or not.  Maybe I will have to end up in my craft room making more cards.

Until next time - have a good day!
