Oh Baby! Cardz TV Challenge

Happy TGIF my crafty friends! Hubby had a CAT scan last Friday and this week one of the chemo nurse's called and gave us the news that the chemo is shrinking the cancer on hubby's lung and liver as well as shrinking the lymph nodes as well! Praise the Lord!! We will get more in depth info from doc when hubby goes in for chemo on Monday, I am just very pleased that chemo is working!! Thank you for all your prayers for I know it is prayers and the Lord that is seeing hubby through all this. We are hoping that he can be finished with chemo by May, with only 3 more treatments to go. Then we hope he will just go on a maintenance chemo pill, but we aren't sure until we talk with doc on Monday. So happy that things are looking up!

On to my project, it is time for the card team from Cardz TV to have their challenge and our challenge is to make a baby card. Well I made a baby announcement for my aunt who is in another state of my newest grand-daughter. It is a "post card" type of card, so it doesn't open. I printed out a 5x7 picture of my grand-daughter and then using a 4x6 die, I cut it out. I stamped It's A Girl from Cardz TV Oh Baby stamp set.



 Then on the back I used the die again to cut and round the top and bottom part after I punched the border out of white cardstock. Then using the Cricut cartridge New Arrival, I cut out the stat words and then used a marker and filled in the info. Mom doesn't know the length of Trinity, so I left this blank. This "card" will fit in an A6 envie. Now it's your turn, let's see those baby cards! And it has been asked to you have to use Cardz TV stamps and the answer is no. But....you could win a set!!! So link up with Cardz TV with your baby card. And don't forget to give my design team sister's some bloggy love as they have some awesome inspiration for you. Also the 3D team has a St. Patrick's Day challenge still going on, so go check it out too while you are at Cardz TV.

This is just adorable. So lovely to see that sweet picture once again, and am liking the way you did the statistics on the reverse. Love that type font, and perfect lace punch with the little stamped sentiments. The best days are when Babies come. Great announcement. TFS & Hugs (so happy to hear the marvelous good news too!)

I can feel the grandmom pride in this adorable announcement! The lace borders, fancy fonts and soft pink colors say it all, and the picture is just precious! This is just the sweetest idea for announcing the newest arrival :)
I hope you don't get more snow either. For today it's still "iffy" as it could take any track toward us or away from us. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a MISS!!! LOL Have a great week!
