Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #66

Happy Wednesday!  This is going to be a faster post today since I'm rushing out the door again!  Story of my life these days!  I was at the school today and got to preview the kids Christmas concert for Thursday.  They are all so sweet.  In light of the tragedy in Connecticut I truly treasured being in the gym with all 800 students watching them get ready for Christmas!  I also am deeply heartbroken for the families of the students and staff that were senselessly killed in last Friday's tragedy.  My family and I have so much to be thankful for this Christmas season.

Today brings a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  Tui Nathan (who is so incredibly talented) brings us a fun sketch that now looking at it I realize I didn't quite follow...oops!  Sorry about that.

I wanted and needed to make a baby card for my friend Jeanette who had her fifth and final baby last Monday (yes, I'm slow!).  She had a little girl after 4 wonderful little boys!  I figured she was now ready for a lot of pink!!!

I used the retired (sadly) Fox and Friends stamp set.  It's perfect for baby cards!  I also got out the Doily Sizzlet and used that!  I must say that I am really loving Primrose Petals!  I think after all the Christmas cards it was super fun to do a baby card!
