Under the sea baby card - GDP003

A Monday and Krista is blogging? Whaaat? As a member of the Global Design Project Team I will be sharing with on this new day and time. For now, I will be sharing every second Monday. I know that is a bit confusing ... but I just need some breathing room as I wrap up my position on the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team.

You do need to know that the rest of the Global Design Project Team WILL be blogging and sharing EVERY Monday! And more importantly, YOU can play along each Monday!

This week the challenge is baby! 

When this sketch came up I had a moment of panic. I do not own a "baby" stamp set. Stamps upon stamps in my collection, not a one for babies. The closest stamp set I have is the Sea Street Stamp Set. But I think it made a fine baby card!

At the time I created this I did not have a baby to gift it to. Our very close friends, and neighbors, were pregnant and due any day. I had no idea if they were having a baby boy, but I wanted the blue color scheme for my octopus.

As luck would have it they did have a beautiful baby boy on Friday morning! This picture is us at the hospital with him, just 11 hours after he was born! Such an emotional day! Ariono looked at him and said "I love him!".

On Friday afternoon I whipped up a banner to hang above the garage door to welcome them home. My Son and I drove the ladder across the street and hung it up. When I stepped off the ladder to look at my hard work this is what I saw ...

Oops! (I used another 4 letter word but you get the idea). A quick crank through the Big Shot and I had new letters ... in the correct order.

After school my daughter and I busted out the sidewalk chalk to decorate the front driveway and sidewalk.

Our friends did come home Friday night and loved the welcome. After the kids were in bed Arturo raced over to visit and hold the baby. He got an hour of snuggles in! I was jelly!! Over the weekend all of our kids walked over to visit. They just can not get enough of this little bundle of joy. Babies just make life better. Can you image, if we could bottle the peace and love that everyone feels when they are around a baby, and use that when we are sad, angry or worried, how different our world could be?
