When a Child is Born....

Good morning! Today is officially a SNOW DAY! Seriously, I have never seen such a blizzard in all my life. 1979 was the closet thing I can remember. The winds howled all night, we had thunder, and blinding snow. I can't see out of many of windows because the snow is covering them, and I can't open my front door. Thankfully, my back door is openable! (Otherwise this gal would be snowed in for a few days! ; ) I will be back later with some pictures!

Anyway, my card today is for a brand new baby. My girlfriend just had a 10lb baby boy! She has two girls, so her little family is now complete! I made this card for her using Angel Blessings by Crafty Secrets. The angel was colored with Copics and given a liberal amount of glitter. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and sprinkled with silver embossing powder. The circle and scalloped circle were cut with Spellbinder's dies. The paper is Papertrey Ink and Melissa Frances.

A few pearls here and there were added to finish it off.
Off to grab my boots and shovel my way out of here! It could be a few hours! Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends!
