A New Baby!

In April, my cousin announced that she and her husband are expecting their first little one.  I am so excited for them and cannot wait to meet the newest addition to our ever-expanding family.

Upon hearing the news and congratulating her (both on Facebook, of course!), I wanted to send her a card letting her know we are thinking of them.  In today's world of technology and sometimes impersonal communication, I find it more important than ever to keep up the tradition of physical cards and letters -- keepsakes that can be held onto for generations to come.

My Mom's side of the family has a {seemingly unhealthy} attachment to elephants -- mainly white elephants.  My maternal great-grandparents own a tavern in Wisconsin called the White Elephant.  The house/tavern still stand today; although it is now a biker bar called the Hogs Nest Saloon.  Once every five years, we make the journey back to our roots and reunite as a family at the former White Elephant.  But I digress... 

Back to the card... I reached into my stash for most of the items used on this card (the cardstock, ribbon, punches, elephant stamp), but did pull out a stamp of the month set from last November for this sweet greeting.

Supplies used:
*It's the Little Things stamp set (Retired SOTM)
*Slate Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Bitty Sparkles clear
*Punches from my stash
*Recollections cardstock from my stash
*Ribbon from my stash
