"PINK or BLUE??? "

OR is "1 or 2" a better question!?
That was my experience!
We had the nursery completely finished for 1 baby...
and then we discovered "the stowaway"!
With 1 we were going to be "surprised"-(HA-they surprised us!)
After 2 weeks of 'not knowing' we decided toooooo much yellow and green would not be a good thing! Funny, how out of the 3 combinations the girl/girl really never occurred to us; although we had 2 girl names. And so it was Sienna and Sierra; PURPLE & Pink. (to this day Sierra remains THE Pink child!
Round two; "pink or blue" didn't hold a candle to "1 or 2"...the answer was 1 and blue (well his eyes are blue- but he fancies YELLOW!
Family complete!

However, yours might not be, with babies being born daily...
allow me to introduce today's highly functional

Night Night Baby digi by ARTish


Happy Baby digi by ARTish
Super adorable for Baby showers, Birthday cards,
New mom encouragement cards, and embellishments for your scrapbook layouts!

I created a card inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Sketch 93...

ta da...

Mr. Stork will be flying them into these challenges also:
Anyone for AnyaVintage White
Paper Sundaestopping bar: PUNCHES & RIBBON
Digis With AttitudeRecipe #6 Sparkle, Ribbon, 2 p.p.
*my choice of p.p. is minimal, yet there! using a standard hole punch I punched out circles from Basic Grey Periphery: champagne, and blanco and placed them under the pearls on the fabric pouch...

Using the double punch method, I made a plethora of heart outlines...

To most it may just look like a mat, to me it is a reminder of how delicate a heart can be, mine that was in "perfect cardio" health failed after the girlies were born; due to the pregnancy: Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. I almost took flight as an angel leaving Sean alone with our two beautiful girls. So many prayers were answered. It was a slow process but my heart went from an ejection/fraction of 22 (not really pumping) to good as new in a few years...because I had THE best medicine...the love of a child twice over!

assembled them together in an overlapping formation to create a most lovely mat...(pictured right-side down; very sparkly on top)

'vintage' pearl buttons...

The remainder of the punchfest was a pile of hearts turned cushy cloud...

Chances are if a stork lands he might leave a feather...
ribbon flower...

Fly on over to PAPER PRETTIES to get your ARTish digis!

And be sure you stop and tell your babies; pink, blue, 1 or 2...just how much you LOVE them.

So blessed ,
