9 months has finally passed and a good friend of ours had her baby.  Like many of the pregos that we know of lately, she was unsure if she was having a boy or a girl.  Every time one of our friends has a baby,  I quickly start thinking that I want one too.  The thought soon disappears when I am reminded of the days when school is cancelled and I am at home watching my kids and the babysitting kids.  What a madhouse! 

Not knowing if our friends were having a boy or girl, I have been making gender neutral cards.  In my earlier post, I had requested that someone please have a girl...and she did!  So instead of using one of the many baby cards I have already made, I just had to break out the pink!  I used the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!   

Okay, technically there is brown and blue in there, making it not TOTALLY a girly card, but it satisfied me much more than the previous cards I had created. :) This is what I specially made for Kelsay and Ryan to celebrate the birth of sweet Willow Faye:

I just cannot get enough of these little banners! The best part is that you can earn the punch for FREE during Sale-a-bration, but it will also be available for purchase in the new Annual Catalog.  You know what that means to me?  There will probably be a new little banner set to coordinate with it since this one will no longer be available!  Yay!  :) You know, no matter how much new stuff I have, I am always thinking about what will be coming out next!  Stamping is such an addiction! lol
