Happy Wednesday!  Popping in with a quick picture from our Chicago trip.  I thought this bean at Millenium Park was very cool.  I love the reflection of the entire Chicago skyline behind us.  As you can tell it was a beautiful day there on Sunday.  Don't you wonder who thinks of these types of creations?  So cool...

Now...onto my card for today.  When I saw the current challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook, the pastels immediately made me think of a baby card.  I decided to pull out a couple of the pastels and make a very CAS card.  The sweet little bells are from Stampin' Up.  Looking forward to using them on Christmas cards too!

That certainly is a grand piece of architecture, and pretty genius to know that the skyline would be reflected. Your card is so pretty, so perfect for a baby. The sentiment makes me smile. A lot.

What a great family photo! I'll have to check out that amazing sculpture if I ever make it back to Chicago.
I love the sweet simplicity of your card, and that sentiment is one of my favorites for little ones. The bells are such a cute touch.

LOL Up at the house last night to meet with our tile guy...he had to come up with something a little cool for the front entrance as the tile was going to end a bit weird...he's very good at what he does and we loved his solution. And got 2 late emails from Paige...she must have heard us talking!! lOL
