Hip hop horray!

I have a friend, bless her, who is now 4 days overdue, 4cm dilated and NOTHING is happening! I feel for her. I was there with my kids, first was 5 days overdue and the second was 6 days overdue. The worst though was being told my due date was June 21 and then "oh I'm sorry it's actually July 5th" and then he arrived July 10th. Now THAT was an eternity.
Today's card is in preparation for Lisa's little man to enter this world. He is so cozy in his mom's tummy but we are all anxious to meet him. In my neck of the woods people leave town to have babies so we haven't seen Lisa since the beginning of September! I hope to see her VERY soon!
Ok, back to the card, it's subtle, it's soft and it's kind of plain BUT that is the point. Seriously though, do you know how hard it is for Alli to create a simple card? *lol* I just want to add more but I am resisting.

paper: Brocade Blue (SU!), Whisper White (SU!), Crate Paper DP, So Saffron (SU!)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Jet Black StazOn
stamp set(s): So Very (SU!), Bear (A*Muse)
accessories: Copic Ciao Markers, Corner Punch (SU!), Scallop Punch (SU!), Circle Punch (SU!)

Now for some CHF deets...there are some pretty cards floating around with some fun, whimsical and classic looking stamps. I am so excited I can hardly wait to have them in my hands. Hopefully Mr. Post arrives with STOCKED HANDS one of these days (shesh Canadian mail!) But in the meantime you can drool over the sneak peaks of CHF's newest lines
Here....and HERE....and HERE ...and HERE oh and don't forget HERE too! And the best was saved for last...DO stay tuned to the CHF BLOG (and mine for that matter *LOL*) for something FUN and EXCITING. There are MANY prizes to be won in celebration of next weeks' BIG release. Oh you are going to LOVE them *wink*

EDITED: to update...she had her baby boy at 11PM last night!! He is SOOO cute too, I just received a photo.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
