{Happy New Baby}

I don't make many baby cards. In fact, I have very few "baby" type stamps because my friends are all past their baby-making stages, and are now heavily into child rearing, pre-teen-itis, and terrible teens. My own children have either adopted children or haven't started their families yet, so no babies on the horizon there. My cousins are all done having kids, and so that leaves...the children of my cousins! Man, that really makes one feel old when you see this person who, though it seems like yesterday, you saw crawling around in diapers themselves, are now changing the diapers of their children.

I recently have reconnected with one of my second cousins at Christmas time, and she mentioned that she was pregnant with her fourth child (yikes). I didn't give it much thought until I received pictures of her newest cutie pie, Sara, who was born on the 5th of January! Well, like I said, I don't make many baby cards, so I really had to scramble to come up with something that I could send to her in a hurry. This is what I came up with. I hope she likes it, and for something that I threw together in about 20 minutes, I like it too! Mission accomplished!
