Baby Boy Congratulations!

Hello Crafty Friends!  A start to a new week in a new month, June already!  I know I must not be the only one who the year is flying by for!  This is a busy month with all sorts but with summer ahead (school lets out of the 27th) I have lots to look forward to!

Yesterday Ariel and I went to a baby shower for a sweet baby boy!  I of course left the baby card to the last minute.  Make baby cards to have on hand seems to be a goal that's never met!  I made a very CAS baby card and I like how it turned out!

Trying to decide on which patterned paper to use I thought this paper would work great but it wasn't very babyish so I quicky thought to use Aqua Mist cardstock by PTI and it brought the much needed baby feeling to this card!  I used Onsie Twoosie by Taylored Expressions along with Basic Grey's Knee Highs and Bowties paper and Paper Smooches Duo Die 1! 

I am entering this card into  this week's Simon Says Challenge, anything goes!

We are much enjoying soccer season over here!  Even with so many rainy days Carter only missed one game!  The last game last week he scored 4 goals and is in love with soccer now.  All he wants to do is go outside and kick the ball!  Chad and me take turns playing with him but it doesn't seem to be enough as he will ask any neighbor he can if they want to kick too!  Yesterday we had to take his soccer ball into church as he was going home with grandma and grandpa and he had to have his ball!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave me a comment in May!  The winner of the Hero Arts This is Big stamp set is Maureen Morton!

This month's random RAK for a comment left in June is this stamp set from Flourishes Zinnias!

Here's how and why:

I am appreciative of the time that you take to visit my blog and I want to thank you with this.   I find joy in blogging and the feedback that it brings!  I have too many stamps that haven't seen ink!  This is a new stamp (as they will be).  Doesn't matter where you live I will ship anywhere!  Leave a comment in May on any post and you will have a chance to win!  You don't have to be a blog follower but it would make me happy and it would be easier for you to find out if you won!
Thank you!  See you soon!  I should be a much better blogger this month!

superb card Anita. The colours are stunning. I like that they are not too babyish!!! Glad Carter is enjoying his soccer. It's great for them to participate in a team sport. He sounds quite talented in the sport.

The baby card is so sweet! I think I am in the same boat like you Anita, I don't go to baby shower much so whenever the occasion arises, I am scrambling for a card too!! LOL
BTW congrats Maureen!!

This card is perfectly sweet, Anita! I like the CAS style and not-too-cutesy papers.
