Whiff of Joy guest designer call #2

I thought about makin this card all day
one of my girls from work told me she was pregnant
well I said "you must be pregnant!?!"
and she just looked at me & smiled
later she said "mum's the word"
so I am the only person besides her hubby that knows
sure makes me feel special :)
made this card
I wrote on the inside "secrets are special"

so I thought since this girls' fav color is orange
might as well make another card for the WOJ design team challenge
I used this confirmand stamp put a popup dot under a second copy of her dress to pop out the belly and changed this beautiful stamp up a little to use it for a pregnancy card.

thanks for comin by
we are off to the lake for the first long weekend of this summer
lookin forward to it fer sure
it is also my brotherinlaw's 40th bday
so I know it'll be a great time :)
have an awesome one

I walked up to recieve my award and one of my collegues yelled out
"We love you Vanessa"
I was so touched
it took all of me not to cry
my head was 30 shades of red
I am so proud :)and so happy about all the aspects of my life
