Welcome, Baby Boy!

No, I did not have a baby boy, nor am I expecting.
No, my SIL did not have a baby boy (she's due Sat - don't know if girl/boy - can't wait to meet the little one!!!!)
My FRIEND had a baby boy! :)

I had a little gift I wanted to send her, and of course I wanted to make a matchy-matchy card. However, I was trying to get the card done before getting to the post office on time, so it may not be as 'neat' as some of my other cards (by the way, I didn't make it in time and had to wait until the following Monday). :(

Anyways, that's to explain the not-so-good quality pics I am about to show you. The background is not my usual...this time, it is the tissue for wrapping the gift, lol! :)

I got to use one of my NEW stamp sets, called "A Slice of Life" - it's a Hostess one from the mini catalog.  Ready? OK!

A bit simple, perhaps. But like I said, I was in a bit of a hurry to get this out on time, and baby cards don't need to be complicated, right?  I am drawn more and more to the CAS type of card. I know she knows that love and thought went into it, even if it isn't some big wonderful card. It's cute! :)

The next picture shows where I got my color scheme from...wish I could've shown all of it (there was a blue/blue striped onsie in there as well), but like I said...just tried to get a snapshot quick before running to the post office...

The colors I used are Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and Night of Navy.  I kinda like it!  I like that the onsie matches one of the onsies I gave her, too. :)  I'm just that way, lol.
