Paper Dolls Challenge #10

I'm trying to catch up on some of the Paper Dolls Challenges so here is #10: A Sketch by Amy.  I rotated the sketch - it was tall with the scallops on the bottom.  

And here is my card.  If you saw my pink baby girl tag in yesterday's post, here is it's boy counterpart.  I thought the snail was an appropriate image since my friend is nearly a week overdue! (I know that is common, but mommy-to-be probably feels like she's a month overdue.)  I wish the sentiment said "look who has finally arrived!" though. :) 
So girl or boy, I am all set!  Just have to pick up a boy or girl outfit on the way to the hospital to go with the rest of the gift!

Well, I am trying to organize our trip to Chicago for CHA.  In February, I asked my mom to go with me and she agreed.  Then we mentioned it to my aunt, since her son's family lives in Chicago.  She decided to come.  Last week we thought it would be fun if all the girls on that side of the family came so we checked with my other aunts and girl cousins and 1 aunt and 4 cousins decided to come!!  So there will be 8 of us!  I think just my mom and I will be attending CHA on Friday though and then we will spend the rest of the weekend sightseeing with the family.  It's going to be a riot, I'm so excited!!  I'm off to scour the web for some deals on hotels!

Hope you have recovered from the holiday weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

Such a sweet, adorable card--love that little snail (and how appropriate too!). The argyle and chocolate work perfectly with the blue. Love your little girl tag too!

So cute. I'm sure your friend will like either card/tag...especially since it means her baby will be here! I especially like the argyle in the background...adds that great 'boy' touch!
