Oh, Baby!! (SACC60)

This week MilkCoffee is generously sponsoring our challenge.

Thank you so much for your support, MilkCoffee!

Just found out that a cousin of mine is having a girl!! Yea! She will join her big brother in October. I love this image 'About to Pop' from Saturated Canary so much that I just had to make her a card with it. Plus, I got to practice my Copic marker coloring. Still trying to perfect the hair skills. :) 

The card base is Stampin' Up's Almost Amethyst and the designer papers are DCWV's Nana's Nursery - Baby Boy. (I know! Baby boy. Looks very girly to me. :)) The sentiment is from MFT's Twisted Sentiments (retired) set and inked up in Elegant Eggplant.

Inside, I used a stamp I got forever ago in the dollar spot at Michaels. I've since removed it from the wooden block so I really have no idea the company. It's also inked up in Elegant Eggplant.

This card measures 5.5 by 5.5 inches.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

  1. Man, Alycia, you are the Queen of Challenges!! This preggers card is so fun and so pretty! I think her hair is colored perfectly! That image is so like most of the young pregnant woman I see now. In my day you couldn't see the bump because of the surrounding plumpness all over, unless you were a stick-thin person. They know how to do it the healthy way now! It's been 36 years for me and I'm still trying to lose that "baby weight!" Have a great weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
