Another Boy?!?!? :)

Good Morning!

Well, as good as a Tuesday morning can be, anyway ;).  An old friend and I had discussed this many years ago, and it recently came back up with another group of friends...Tuesday, is the WORST day of the work week.  You already know Monday will be hard...Wednesday, you're halfway there...Thursday, you can FEEL Friday, and then it's Friday before you know it.  Tuesday...there's just nothing good about it, nothing to look forward to, not close enough to the end of the week...it just plain stinks - lol.

BUT -- enough about that, we're here to talk about boys...er, well, sort of anyway.  My neighbor and friend had a baby last week.  She's got 3 boys, and guess what...now there are 4!  I felt the need to whip up something GIRLY for her, since she's totally outnumbered.

Let's take a look at some GREAT goodies from My Time Made Easy, shall we???

Here's the whole ensemble. I LOVE the new Rambling Rose Pretty Pieces cut file that Lauren is offering this month.  I love how you can give it different looks, just by how your 'roll' the petals of the flower.  I've used them on the Take Time Pocket template, as well as the card.  you can make as many or as few, lots of layers, or not...oh and ANY SIZE too! :)

I don't know if this will last in a house full of guys, but it's worth a shot...I think she deserves a bit of girly-ness, don't you??  Though I suppose, it's like my hubby, surrounded by all of these girls, just in smaller quantities.

Here's a close up of the flowers...I love this...
 And here's one of just the card...
 
I kept it pretty plain, bringing in the colors, and elements from the template. 


And one last one of just the template itself...I re-labeled the lotion and shower gel, and wish the new (again) Mommy some peace and quiet at SOME point in the day, lol.

Thanks for stopping by today -- prove me wrong, and make it a great one!! :)

Stunning Roses- Your Neighbour/Friend is going to love them- I'm Jealous...lol
Just joking! She deserves to be pampered!She shouldn't feel bad for not having a girl though.
Boys usually spoil their mums. Ask me? I know...and in some culture,they'll be jumping up for JOY!Happy Tuesday!!
