and baby makes 3

gosh it has been over a week since I have made a card!  we went camping last week at Phillip Island - lovely place down there.  So I get back to Melbourne and just yesterday when i started this 'baby' card for CAS-ual Fridays I find out that I am going to be an Aunty again!  My youngest sister is having another child!   So I think it is very 'creepy' that I am doing a 'baby' card (I normally don't do these) and I find out a new baby is on the way in the family :)
So I based this card on the sketch from Card Patterns and the colours are from the challenge over at AnnaBelle Stamp blog - say it with brown, mustard and olive.

here is a close up of the oversized tag ...
I created the little family from Stampin Up 'all in the family' set where you can mix and match the clothes, faces and feet according to what family you want to create - I love the set and don't use it enough!
materials - AC butter and white card; Bazzill parakeet, Core 'dinations chocolate mocha cardstock; Echo Park 'for the record' papers; Stampin Up 'all in the family' stamps; MFT 'mini banner day alphabet' stamps; StazOn jet black, Versa Color bamboo, Brilliance coffee inks; Spellbinders standard circles large; MFT wonky border; Carl 12mm circle punch; Provocraft cuttlebut flower dies; Provocraft silent setter; 10mm split ring; natural cord; 15mm yellow grossgrain; Kaisercraft fonzo alphabet olive stickers; 1/8" brass eyelet.
Thanks for looking and enjoy your week.
