Is there a Baby Boom happening?

My friend, Mia, who is an early childhood nurse, tells me September/October is the peak period for births. That's certainly true for my circle of friends, there's plenty of new babies around.

While I was up in Queensland, one of my SU! team, Kendall had a baby girl, Savannah Dawn. A new daughter for husband, Daniel, and a little sister for Amelia (Millie). Here's the card I made for them all:

The design is largely inspired by a card from Marelle Taylor. I've used the big and small flowers from the Little Pieces and Big Pieces stamp sets, stamped in Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose on Whisper White card stock. I've pieced together a baby from the All In The Family stamp set and mounted it on a scallop made using the Scallop Circle Punch.

The "Welcome Baby" greeting is from the Short & Sweet stamp set which is great value this month at 20% off its normal price. Both words and graphics for under $24!

Thanks for looking,

Love from Crafty Kim
