Hello there...

I was so tickled to be invited along on a special blog hop to honor a friend and her new little one!  Jinny Newlin just had a gorgeous baby bow and we wanted to shower her with cards today.

You may not now this, but Jinny and I have known each other since we were little.  We didn't realize that until recently.....long story and you can read it HERE....but it is very cool how we found each other and didn't even realize that we already knew each other.  Confusing I know...but such a fun story.

Anyway, I want to send huge hugs and contraulations to BJ, Jinny, Ezekiel and Adina on the addition to their family!  What an amazing gift from God!  Here is a little card, just to say hi...


I bad a banner and stamped the sentiment and then sewed down the edge.  I added in the die cut from my Silhouette.  I kept it simple by layering all on some blue striped paper.  


And then a tiny duck to finish it off.

Here are the rest of the girls with some hello wishes for little Kaden!  Thank you so much for stopping by and Jinny, I can't wait to see you again...and that new little guy!  Congrats!!
