Fly Away L'il Notarized-Document Birdie!

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, Hoarding Card Makers!

Today's Clean and Simple card project was created for my down-in-the-dumps BFF using a fun digital image:

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the heart-pounding product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooooo, Sheila's brother's wife, Denise, is pregnant and expecting a bouncing baby boy this summer. Yesterday Sheila, Reid-the-Wild-Child, and I went by Sheila's SIL to drop off some of Reid's old baby clothes.

"Aunty Denise, you're getting fat!" Reid observed.

"Yes, honey, but remember Aunt Denise has a baby growing in her tummy." Denise explained.

"I know, but what's growing in your butt?"

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me! I'll be back tomorrow with this week's fantastic CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge!
