A Baby's Announcement

After visiting a friend and her baby in the hospital, I felt very inspired. Mine are 7 and 8 years old now, so there is no more tiny cutsie clothes or the smell of Baby Magic in our house. I don't plan to have anymore, so getting to see this little one was quite a joy. I do pretty good at the not wanting more, but every so often I do get the itch. It won't happen, so I'll just continue to hang out with the friends that are. I'll get my baby fix that way.

I wanted to do something for them, other than the traditional baby outfit or blanket, so I offered my services to make some announcements. They were sweet, and seemed pleased with the idea. So I jumped on it as soon as I got home. Now after I had gotten the pink pirouette paper and ribbon in my recent order, I struggled with what I might do with it. I wasn't sure I would ever use it up. I was on Splitcoaststamper earlier and found this idea. After making these, it is safe to say that using it is not a problem. I actually have no more of the ribbon, and the paper is almost gone as well.
