Baby Shower

One of my friends in South Carolina is expecting her first baby (a boy) in September. I had already thought of the kind of card I would make for her, before the big day. In my mind, I had envisioned something with a pregnant lady.

However, when her friends were organizing a surprise shower for her (much sooner than I had ever anticipated), the idea for my card (and the time to make and send it) changed very quickly.

That's because everyone was asked to bring a children's book or two to the shower. Unfortunately, I couldn't go to South Carolina to join the celebration, but I was able to contribute a couple of books and thus this card seemed appropriate. Even more so, when one of my books was "Brown Bear, Brown Bear". A huge coincidence, but very welcome, in my book (pun intended).

I hope the baby shower was a huge success and the mom-to-be went home with a whole trunk full of books.

The deets for my card:
I1090 - Bedtime Story from Stampabilities
Happy Bearthday Embossing Folder from Sizzix
Copic Markers

Wishing you many happy stamping hours and a glorious weekend! Isabelle
