Baby Girl . . . .

I made this card for a friend who has recently had a baby girl. Last night my daughter said that I had to ask the midwife if our baby was a boy or a girl. 'I don't like surprises' she said, and continued, ' well, I like happy surprises just not sad surprises'. Hmmm, I asked what a 'sad surprise' was. The answer 'a baby boy'!!!!!! No pressure there then.

I used this Crafter's Companion 'Humphrey's Corner' stamp - not sure if I've ever used it before and I've had it ages. Naughty girl!

The papers were from my stash - printed from a Crafter's Companion CD (pretty sure they're from the SWALK collection). The sentiment is LOTV and the flowers are from WOC. I've used that La La Land banner die again - it's so delicious! I've also used the Grand Decorative ovals from Spellbinders again, I just love these yummy dies.
I hate to say it, but I am soooooooooo not loving this weather. My legs and feet are so swollen I can't get my shoes on, my bump hurts all the time and the baby is busting some crazy moves and my daughter is covered in a heat rash :(  I'm more of a Spring/Autumn kinda gal!!! However, I hope that you're enjoying the sunshine!!

Thank you for visiting me - it always makes my day that you do.  Biggest of hugs, Jayne xxxxx

Your card is just adorable! I love all the pretty girly elements - my fave kind of card :-)

I know we are not really supposed to complain when we actually get some hot weather for a change but wow, it is *really* hot right now. I do hope it cools down a little soon and then hopefully you will feel better!

Hugs, Kat xx

Oh dear Jayne, it sounds like you are suffering in this heat. Hopefully it will cool down soon.
Your card is gorgeous, I love the cute image and such beautiful detailing.
I'm sure that once your baby is born your daughter will fall in love with it at first sight, even if it is a boy.
take care
