Welcome Baby!

Hello, and TGIF! Today I'm using the soft and springy color combination from the Color Throwdown (CTD87) to use pink, gray and soft olive. I think this counts! I've used two shades of pink, two shades of gray and I never pass up the opportunity to use Kiwi Kiss!

The sketch is from Mojo Monday (MOJO133)- isn't it great?!! Did you notice my Going Gray piece that is crimped? I think it unintentionally ended up being reminiscent of a picket fence.

This is my first use of the stamp set called Good Neighbors which was one of the last FREE sets I earned during Sale-a-Bration. First I stamped the house and trees but decided it was a little too bare so then I cut a template for a sidewalk, used temporary adhesive to put it in place, another piece of scrap paper over the house and sponged on some Kiwi grass. What do you think? It is supposed have a welcoming feel for the arrival of a new baby.

So do you think my "Welcome Baby" is bold enough or should I have stamped it in white? It is actually in Rose Red which is more obvious in person.

Well, gotta run. Off to watch the Fort Wayne Komets play tonight! Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday (hopefully!)
