I'm going into "Baby Phase"

Now don't get excited, I'm not having a baby, but I will soon have a granddaughter. My son and his wife are expecting their second child in November and they've been told it's a girl, so on with the pink baby stuff!

Isn't this little tyke just darling? The card is a 5" x 5" card and the base is Berry Sorbet by PTI. Their cardstock is superb. I added a layer of Lace Cardstock by KI Memorins and it's called "hearts blushing". I picked this gorgeous paper up at Stamping Bella, along with the Flower Soft I used for the pod and around the sentiment. The image and sentiment are also Stamping Bella products. I also used a bit of Sweet Blush by PTI for the sentiment and under the image. Really, Emily's store has such wonderful product and, they have a card that you can earn money with and use as a credit when you have enough. Call they store, they'll explain it better than I ever could. All I know is that the more I spend, the more points I earn and can apply to purchases when I've earned enough.

Now, this card I just love. I fell in love with the DP from Stamping Bella and it's Baby Words on Shimmer Glitter Paper by Heidi Grace Designs. It's beautiful and the picture doesn't do it justice. I mounted a 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" square onto a 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" bit of Sweet Blush and then adhered it to shimmering white cardstock cut to 5" x 5". I punched a scallop circle with my SU punch and used the Glamour dust around the edges. The hippos, Mom and Baby, are from Gina K. Designs company. They were created for Gina K. by Melanie Muenchinger. They're so cute. They were coloured with Koh-I-Noor pencils and OMS, ct out and adhered with pop-dots. I attached the mom and baby using some silver thread. I sure hope you like them, 'cause I sure do.

Congratulations Grandma! We are expecting in November as well. My ddl with the twins is expecting a little boy on or about (you know how that can be) the 15th. I need to get started with the blue stuff! I look forward to seeing what you put together in pink - hopefully I'll get inspired! ~chris
