Card for my Niece

Hi, was so very excited to hear the wonderful news that our niece in Hamilton is expecting her first babe, she and her husband are over the moon. I was also very lucky that nite I went onto Trade me and found this wonderful new stamp set called 'Swell news' and it is perfect to make cards for expecting Mums and can also be used after the babe is born, as has five stamps in the set, one with the Mum pregnant (as shown in my card) and the words in the card, but also a package full of baby goodies, a wee stamp saying 'happy waiting' and a stamp with safety pins on it, so actually six stamps in all and a really neat useful set.

I have based my card on a previous Mojo sketch and although there is quite a bit of pink in it, it is just meant to be pretty for her as a Mum, as we don't know what she is having yet.......

Hope you like it, and too that she does!! Realise it is probably a bit girly for a guy... as they need to be acknowledged too, but never mind, will keep that in mind when I make the baby born card LOL.
