So Worth the Wait...

Happy Tuesday!  I had a good first day back at school/work yesterday and got the day full of meetings behind me.  Now I can go do what I love....get ready for my kiddos!  Woot!  That's the best.  Today is also an exciting day for us here at home because we will go to Prince William Hospital tonight for Lindsay's orientation for Project Search and her first internship. I'm praying for a smooth transition and that she'll be happy with wherever her placement is.  It's hard feeling that I'm tossing her out into an even bigger "pond" full of people who don't know her and all her quirks.  I just pray that she will bless all those she comes in contact with and that she will be protected every minute of every day she's there.  She is very trusting and friendly and it's a whole new world for her.

So back to my job....I'm not sure what exactly was in the water last school year but I actually lost count of the new babies that were born to staff members.  Whew!  That stork was one busy dude!  I actually have one more friend who is expecting a little boy very soon and I wanted to make her a special card.  
Here's what I came up with....

I love the colors.  I used the Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper with Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White card stock.  I love making envelopes that coordinate with the card.  It just adds a little extra "umph".  It's so easy to do with just a little piece of DSP.  Fun, right?

I added a button on the little snail and voila...

I used stamps from two different (but familiar) stamp sets.  The snail is from Button Buddies and the sentiment is from Word Play.  To check out all the supplies used in this project go to my online store HERE  While you're there, check out the new Christmas Stamp-A-Stack classes that are now on my Events page.  RSVP to save your spot.  There will be different designs at each class so you can sign up for one...two....or all three classes.  It's going to be so much fun.

Wishing you a magical day,
