Baby Boy Center Step card

I want to make some cards to give as gifts and so I want a "variety" pack with some baby, wedding, birthday, sympathy and holiday cards to give.  So I made this one for that.  I used a Bugaboo image and made a center step card.
I have to tell the truth...I have sewn my daughter's costumes for Halloween and then when she was about 14 I thought she was old enough and didn't need to go anymore and I didn't need to keep making costumes so I made her a pumpkin costume and said, "This is the last costume I am making you so if you keep going it better last you."  So then with my husband having cancer and so on and with her being on the dance team they had parties and she didn't tell me she just wore her pumpkin.  So her friends teased her that she was a pumpkin and these girls wore very mature outfits.  She didn't care she wasn't going to stress me out and it did because I felt bad for her, but she wouldn't let me buy or make her another outfit.  Now that she is 25, she STILL wears the pumpkin I made her as a teacher.  This year, she bought the Cinderella to go with her boyfriend, but she didn't think it was appropriate for school because it was low - cut and she doesn't show ANY cleavage as a teacher.  So I had to buy a pumpkin costume for her pup, Gus to match.  She finally sent me the picture of the two of them as they went to puppy class on Tuesday night.
