Baby Cards

So you would think living here my whole life I would learn to not believe the weatherman. It barely snowed and the roads were completely clear, so we weren't stuck in the house all day. It was fun to read your comments about snow! This was actually our second storm of the season. All of our snow is lake effect snow until the lake freezes over. Something about cold air passing over (relatively) warm water, and we get dumped on quite frequently. Bet you didn't think you'd be getting a science lesson now did you?

Anyway, my mom needed some baby cards for a shower, so this is what I whipped up for her. The first card is VERY similar to a card in a recent SS, and the second one is a much-used and favorite layout of mine. These cards are also all Stampin' Up! except for the button. And I actually didn't use kraft as a base for both, lol!


This is a picture of my husband and his siblings the weekend of the spaghetti dinner. His six week follow up appointment is Thursday, and if everything looks good he should not have to wear his neck brace anymore. He did take it off for the pic, but normally he only takes it off to shower. It's almost strange for me to see him in this pic without it, but I won't be sad to see it go. Adam calls it "dada's booboo". In case you can't tell who has the straightest neck, Chad is second from the left.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your comments!
