Hello Baby.......PPA69.....


Pals Paper Arts challenged us to use ribbon and keep it simple. I used Nursery Suite DSP and skinny Marina Mist ribbon to create a card for my niece's soon-to-arrive baby boy!  Yep a boy - unless of course there is a little glitch somewhere.  A friend of mine once decided to let his young son announce the gender of an expected sibling at a family gathering Christmas Eve.  He asked the ultrasound tech to print the test results on a card and seal it in an envelope.  He then taught his son to say boy when he saw a B and girl when he saw a G.  The big day came and when the little guy opened the envelope he yelled BOY!  Of course there was cheering and celebrating!  Thank Heaven before the evening was over Mom thought to pick the card up off the floor where the little boy had dropped it in his excitement.  The ultrasound tech had printed on the card - Baby girl!  Maybe I will make a pink version of this card..........just in case............

Linda this is adorable, love the story, but the card...too cute. Now I have to order some DSP Nursery Suite. Did you color the bows on the paper blue or does it come that way?

Your story is just as charming as this sweet little card. I love how you've featured the wonderful bunny DSP and how your fantastic ribbon treatment mimics the bow on the bunny. Just precious! {hugs}

I loved reading your story. How cute that must have been when the little boy yelled at that it was a boy. :) Your baby card is so sweet. I love it.
