Knocked Up?

My girlfriend is pregnant...and I am sooooooooo happy for her. Her Hubby and her older daughter are totally thrilled. They've been trying for a while and this couldn't have happened to a nicer person. She is beside herself...and to be honest, it's impossible to not get excited yourself. I just had to make her a card. She owns the only Scrapbooking store in my city...and is a professional card maker...so you can feel my pain.Whenever I make her a card, it is thought about and planned...forever. Don't get me wrong, she loves all the cards she gets from friends and family...but she's sooo good at making cards...ARG! Anyways, this is the card I came up with.  She has a twisted sense of humor(like me)...so she wouldn't be insulted by the tongue in cheek sentiment. I like how the card turned out...too cute. I just love that Simply Charmed Cricut cart.

Recipe:
  • Nana's Nursery-DCWV paper
  • Bazzill-lt yellow and lt pink
  • Cardstock scraps-cream, brown
  • CTMH-Amethyst ink

Oooh, I was wondering who was pregnant when you mentioned it in your last post! Such great news for her. Your card is great, she'll love it. I really like the inside too!

I LOVE THE CARD!

Thank you very much! The soother is way too cute, the colours are fabulous and you even pulled out the sewing machine for me!

The front sentiment is very appropriate, since you all have been watching me like a hawk lately for signs of me being pregnant.
