Tickled Pink baby card

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Summer is in full bloom at the Houston home here in northern California.  I pumped up the kiddie pool so it is official summertime!! It was a gorgeous morning today and before going to work I took my Bible out to the backyard with a cup of tea and enjoyed some time in the Word. I kept waiting for the little hummingbird that likes my lilac bush to visit but I didn't get to see it this morning.  Twice it's gotten about eight inches away from my arm, it was so cool!

Last night I made this card for a friend (Kacie Scott), who is having a baby shower in two weeks.  I'm also helping with the decorations for her shower.  I've made a banner and 45 favors for the event but that will have to wait for another post!  
If you enjoy Country Gospel check out Kacie's music, HERE  Not only is she a sweet girl with a precious testimony, she has a beautiful voice and has written songs for her latest CD.  

I've entered this card at
