It's a Boy
It was a busy day today with 2 baseball games and a baby shower in between. My nephew and his wife are expecting their first child, a baby boy, on my mother's 84th birthday in June. What a wonderful birthday present for her, grandchild # 8.
This umbrella is a Great Impressions stamp, which I stamped 4 times on different colored papers and then did a lot of paper piecing. (And I have enough pieces left to make a second card.) I sprayed it with sparkle shimmer mist, which looks really neat but didn't show up in the photo. There are Dazzles above the umbrella, liquid pearls on the points, and the sentiment is CTMH.
