I am going to be an Auntie!!! Hip Hip, Hooray!
(If you are looking for my March workshop post - please scroll down......)
We found out on Christmas Eve that my lil sis is expecting! We have been waiting for this and I am so excited! Auntie Krista has been such an amazing Auntie to my two boys (even from so far away!) and I cannot wait to return the favour! Technically, I have one niece and one nephew on hubby's side of the family, but this will be my first niece or nephew!!!
And, my boys are super excited to have cousins on my side of the family! Obviously, this card is for my sister and her hubby to congratulate them on their fantastic news.
True to form, Kris chose a fun and creative way to make the announcement. On Christmas Eve, when it was time to hand out the one Christmas Eve gift (always pyjamas), Krista passed gifts to Chester and Doodlepants, but also to my Mom and I. The package didn't look big enough for PJ's and both Mom and I wondered if maybe it was a gag gift - you know embarassing frilly knickers or something......well, were we in for a surprise - I did not suspect what was coming even for a second! When I opened mine, there was a TINY diaper shirt that said "If you think I'm cute, you should see my Auntie!" - at the very same time, my Mom was opening hers - the diaper shirt said "Good things come in small packages!" and underneath there was an ultrasound picture!!! Well, the timing was perfect, because Mom and I somehow managed to squeal at exactly the same time. It was so much fun, and I am so glad I was there in person to hear the big announcement!
I would like to share my card over at The Paper Players for Anne's colour challenge - to use poppy parade, pool party, soft suede and very vanilla. I don't have the SU cardstock, but I do think my colours are very close.
I am also sharing my card this week for Bellarific Friday - anything goes - that is two weeks in a row I've managed the Bella's challenge! I would like to keep this up as I have so many fabulous Bella stamps, many of which are desperately seeking ink, lol!
Thanks for stopping by!
Auntie Shanna ;)
p.s. The really exciting part is that my Mom & Dad will soon be on their way with my lil sis for a long weekend visit, so I will get to see the belly!!!
