Rock A Bye Baby

It's a baby blog hop surprise for Min!!!

Min is one of the coordinators for Catch The Bug and she puts in numerous hours helping our team to run smooth and she just happens to be pregnant with her first baby!!!  A baby girl as a matter of fact.  We thought it would be fun to surprise her with a BABY BLOG HOP before her little one arrives!

You should have arrived here from the talented Angela Pruisman's blog, Just Monkeying Around, but if you didn't and would like to join us on the hop, head on over to Catch The Bug to get started!

Here is the card I made for Min featuring Bugaboo Stamps Boo Peeker Bottle

I colored the image using PSE 12 and added some depth using Copic markers.  I thought it would be cute to make a baby head band and use it as an accent on the card.  It's been a while since I did any crocheting, but this was pretty simple and will be useful.
Min and Glenn, I just want to say a big congratulations to the both of you!  This is a joyous event in your lives.  Before you know it you'll be asking each other, "what did we do before we had kids?".  They are a gift from God and I know that you will be great parents.  Being the mom of three grown children, my motherly advice I want to share with you is, take the time to sit and rock that baby.  The dishes, laundry and everyday stuff will always be there waiting for you, but babies grow so fast and before you know it your looking back, wondering where the time went.  My dear friend gave me the same advice when I was starting out and boy was she right.  

Now it's time to head on over to the fabulously talented Billie Andersons blog, Ink On My Fingers.
