"It's a Boy!" Card

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope your week is ending on a good note!

Let's see...what have I been up to...

Well, yesterday, we had a surprise baby shower at work. The lady is having a baby girl and we celebrated with presents and lots of pies (strawberry rhubarb, blueberry, key lime and something I didn't recognize). I had 2 small helpings of the blueberry and key lime ones.

Right after the baby shower, one of the managers asked me to make a card to send around for another coworker that's having a baby boy, so that's what I worked on tonight. I have been looking for an opportunity to use the airplane stamp and cloud paper, and here was my chance! I started out with a green plane, but I didn't think it stood out against the teal sky so I switched to red. Red can be for boys, too, right? I didn't want the card to have too much dimension because it was going to be passed around the office and I didn't want things to get banged up. I'm so glad that I had enough chipboard letter stickers for the sentiment so that the card wasn't TOO flat. Hello, happy medium.

Whoop whoop for the Moxie Fab link!

And yes, red is fine for boys - good choice for the plane.
