Baby Boy Card



I showed everyone the baby girl card I made for my husband's squadron to use for new baby girls that members of the squadron have.  Well, these are three of the six baby boy cards I made.  Again I used the monochromatic challenge from the Great Swaps Girls blog to come up with the colors.  You should check it out here.  I think it's cute.  I decided to change the LO of the elements a little for the last three and I'll show you that card later.  I also have some Great Swaps Girls cards to share, but I need to give those a few more days so that hopefully the gals have gotten them before I share them.  Anyway, life is still crazy for me and today we had a snow day so all three of my little munchkins are at home, I had some cards to make, I have an event for church tomorrow night that I'm heading up to get ready for, and I have a friend staying with me while her kiddo gets some surgery done here in the states (they are in the Air Force and are stationed overseas at a base where the surgery can't be performed).  So....posts will probably be spaced every other day for a while now.  Hope you're all doing well!!!
