How my Stamp Ladies found out ...

Here is the last "HOW THEY FOUND OUT" post. I wish that I was able to tell all of my friends in some cute way ... but we couldn't!

I hold a stamp club once a month at my house. There are 10 ladies in the club, and we share turns being the "hostess" for Stampin' Up! It is a great group ... and I wanted to make sure that they learned about the news in an exciting way. Our theme was dry embossing, and I made a cute little baby boy card. (I will post a picture as soon as I get my camera back from the Ephraim bowling alley). As I was cutting the last piece of ribbon I said: "Now don't put my name on it just yet ... I won't know if it's a boy or a girl for a couple more weeks." It was GREAT to see their faces light up as they realized what it was that I was telling them. Their eyes got a bit wider, they sat up a bit straighter, then smiled! It was great!

**Funny story: I was so nervous to give my big line ... that I cut my finger with the scissors as I was cutting the ribbon. OOPS!

Oh, oh, oh... I love that you've changed your background to reflect your baby boy! What fun!
