One of those days!

Well I have definately had a "day". So there is a new baby in our neighborhood. I am really not in the neighborhood as I live on a big farm across the street, but I have no other neighbors so I have adoped them wether they like it or not, LOL. This cute cupple Kristy & Christian had a baby. There was a fun sign with a baby buggy and a big pink heart. The name was small, so from the road I deducted it was a girl and that her name was Claire. I then looked around and there was a really fun Color challenge from GKD StampTV. The challenge was to use red, pink & black. Red & Pink is not my normal pick for colors so I looked for some dsp and a sketch for inspiration. Love the Mojo Monday sketch #77, so I was off.

Here was my take using papertrey ink's punny valentine set. I don't get it out nearly enough. I LOVE animals, so this needs some more attention.
So I finish the card. When I am all done, I decide it really needs more black to stand out. I am out of time, so I went with it as I still liked it. So I get the meal made with dessert and all and head over to wish Claire a welcome to our neighborhood. I pull up and get a better look at the sign it is welcome Charlie. What??? Who puts a boy on a big pink heart? Okay I quickly take the card out and decided I will re-do it and mail them the card. Wowziers. Anyway, I watned to get this up. Needless to say I will be making another try at the Mojo Monday sketch and hopefully I will like it even more.
It's a good life!

What a great card, I would have given it anyway as it isn't too girly and they clearly like pink!

Your story made me laugh...but I'm wondering, ...did Charlie end up being a boy or a girl? Nowadays people are naming their kids everything under the sun...was just wondering if it ended up being a unisex name or not.
