Are you expecting?



The sweet little waitress where my MIL has coffee every morning is expecting so she asked if I'd make a card for her... Thankfully I just received this beautiful WOJ stamp from Simon Says. The sentiment is from Whimsy. Look at those beautiful big vintage buttons. My MIL gave me a huge can full of old buttons that belonged to her mother, I am thrilled. These even have the same pattern as Willow's Dress. The sketch is CLP, Alphabet - R for Roses, Cute Card Thursday - NO die cuts or punches, Crafty Pad - simply pearls, Paper Players - anything goes, Crafty Emma - anything goes, My Sheri CRAFTS - babies.
