Good afternoon all, 

This evening i am going to a baby shower of my friend claire. She is due in 2 weeks!!She is not aware that it will be a baby shower but thinks we are all going for diner. So i had to put my head together and make a card. She has been complaining for the last 9 months that she is getting big? 
Obviously i told her that this is normal when you are pregnant, but claire used to be a professional dancer. 
So she is very conscious of her weight. I FEEL LIKE A HIPPO.................... and that was my theme. 
After being a hippo for 9 months you will have a nice surprise at the end, because when you look in your babies eyes, all the pain and suffering will be forgotten. 

It is an Easel card, which i will also put in for the magnolia Tomic #5 challenge
I kept the back round of the card baby blue, on the front part i added lace on the sides. 
The hippo and little baby are colored with ciao copic markers.

  Below you can see some details:

Besides the card i also made a new born baby basket. 
It contains towels, a bottle, a pacifier, little outfits, baby wipes, a bottle warmer, socks etc...  
All needed in the first days.......and you can never have enough of them.

The little crib is made from diapers with a towel around the bed. 

It all matches together, for the attention to detail i put a few flowers around the handle 
of the basket which are the same as i used for the card.

I hope she likes it????

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.
