Welcome baby!

I'm going to make this a quick, short post. I was wondering why I have been feeling so hungry for the last hour or so. I just now looked at the clock and realized it's past my dinner time. I usually eat between 5:00-5:30. Whoops. Good thing I went grocery shopping today!

My cousin just had her baby boy. His name is Brayden and he's precious. I'm not posting any pics, though (sorry), because I'm not sure if she'd be okay with that. I always make it a point to ask the parents first. However, I will show you the card I made to congratulate her and welcome baby Brayden to our family. I based it after the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, sketch #92.

The stamp is from an older Stampin' Up set. I stamped it using the CTMH ink that my friend Bren generously gave me. The button is actually light blue, but it's iridescent, so it didn't photograph well. The whole card is blue and white, with the exception of the outlines of the clouds. I hope she likes it!
