Happy Baby Day

I'm back (so soon after the last post!).  I have a few cards I've made but just never posted so over the next few weeks I'll try to get them all posted here.   But today's post is a card for a dear friend's baby shower.  I had to make this one kinda quickly because I got my Saturday's mixed up and luckily was reminded on which day the party was (oopsey!).  I did struggle a bit with this card because I SOOOO wanted to go all pink (she knows it's going to be a girl, well as certain as someone can before the baby is actually born I guess).  Her nursery is green, tan and then she's pulling some colors from a few paintings that one of her sisters' were making for the baby. Oh and of course I didn't have a proper image for the card (I mean, I had a few cute baby digis but for some reason I had in my mind I needed either a woman or a great sentiment).  Late Friday I found this adorable "Momma Mae" from Some Odd Girl and immediately knew she was the one! Here's some pics of one of the quickest cards I've ever made, lol.
And once again, I see that I need to practice practice practice on my coloring. I'm really struggling with hair, it seems that whatever I do or whatever color I choose the hair looks like a mess.
Oh well, the Mom-to-Be liked it and I guess that's really what matters.  I can't wait for the little girl to be born, I really think I might have to just a pink welcome card for her:)
I want to thank everyone who takes the time to leave such sweet comments, I love reading them.  Hope everyone is having a great day and wish you all a wonderful week.
