No word of a lie, everybody I know is pregnant or just had a baby. Something really had people on the baby making train last year! So far there has been over 20 babies born in our small town and it's only MAY!! That is why when I saw this weeks Atlantic Hearts sketch I could see nothing besides a baby belly.
One of my best friends is due tomorrow, so I whipped up this card this morning to give to her because she is feeling very tired of being very pregnant!

I used the paper from the CTMH kit, Key to my Heart, that was a special a few years ago. (I am such a paper hoarder it's not even funny). I hand drew the baby bump and added a pink glitter gel belt. "Baby" is cut from the Artiste cartridge at 1 1/2". The card base is the clear acrylic cards Close to my Heart sold but are now no longer available.

I never actually wrote anything besides what you see, because at this point there is really nothing anyone can say to make things better. Believe me I know, I was in the same boat just 3 months ago! She loved it and it really did make her day. I'm so glad I could make her happy!
