Sweet Stampin' #36!

Oh my shabby goodness ... today brings us to challenge #37 over at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog and it's one right up my alley -- VINTAGE!!!

My friend, Amy, just told me this week that she is expecting her very first baby!  It's a big month for her as she also turns 40 this month!!  This baby news is extra {sweet} since my friend has been going through a couple of years of fertility treatments.  She was on her very last treatment and was going to 'give up' if it was unsuccessful again this time ... but it worked and she is expecting a sweet little bundle of joy!  I can remember a little more than two years ago sitting at The California Pizza Kitchen with her having dinner and her sharing her intent to begin treatments.  Her perservance paid off and I can't wait to see her precious miracle next February :)

So, onto my card for this week's challenge ...

I found this precious vintage image of a baby in a buggy and when I read the sentiment ... 'The sweetest story ever told' ... I just knew this was the perfect card to give to my friend!  Lots of delicious vintage yumminess on my card this week, including some 'Lacey Blueberry' Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop and a sweet metal charm that reads 'made with love'!

Perfect, don't you think???

Hop on over to the SSCB to be inspired by the other design team girlies lovely creations and then give this totally awesome VINTAGE challenge a try ... I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
