Welcome to the World!

I'm so sorry I haven't posted lately. I have several posts coming within the next few days so I will be posting more often. I also need to catch up on commenting on all of your blogs too! I just took a little break for awhile after I found out some good news recently. My husband and I are expecting our first child! I am due in September and am very excited. :) It just so happens that I also have a baby card to share with you today too.

A couple friends of mine recently had a baby boy, so I wanted to make a card for them! They were going with a jungle theme and non-traditional colors, so I wanted to make something a little different for a baby card, but still keep it cute and simple.

I just love the sentiment, "Welcome to the World". :) It's from PTI Night, Night Moon, which is such a cute baby set! The frame is from WMS Frame-It and the animals are from PTI Tiny Treats Birthday.

I decided to wrap their present to coordinate with the card too. I bought them a book about getting babies to sleep that I thought they might find useful. :) I wrapped it in brown kraft wrapping paper and tied it with Fine Linen ribbon. I'm so sorry for the slightly blurry picture. I had already given them the gift by the time I uploaded the pics.

I colored the lion lightly with colored pencils to give him some dimension. The stamp is from Mat Stack 4 stamp set and Bitty Baby Blessings.

They liked it and I was very happy to meet their new son too. He is very sweet! :)

Have a wonderful sunny day!
