A BABY CARD FOR BEATES SKETCH

Hi all! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I was able to stamp a little bit tonight so I wanted to post something. I have been busy getting the house ready for another open house. The house actually stays pretty ready since I am the only one living here (well, me and the three dogs) BUT dusting and vacuuming always need to be done. I am pretty anal when it comes to the house, something my crafty friends tease me about saying there is no way a stamper/scrapbooker can be this neat!! Well, I am....I can't help it! It's the German in me I think! Anyway, I had the hardest time making this card. My husband's co-worker just had a baby boy so I needed a card to send so I thought I would use Beate's sketch to get me going. Well, one hour later and I was STILL struggling along so I have decided tonight is not a stampin night for me *sigh*. Maybe I will do better tomorrow. At least this card will get us another Bingo number for Barb's game since I DID use punches - LOL! So, here it is, let me know what you think! CYA tomorrow!
