hello Welcome to the Neighborhood

Happy Baby Shower

I was fortunate to be on vacation for the past few days and was visiting some family in Missouri with poor health.  It was nice to get away from work and have some time to relax.  I had this card post for me at Imagine That Digistamp.  It is a card that I have made for a friend who will be having a baby shower in a few months using the pre-colored stamp of Pregnant Peggy and a sentiment from TLC.
