Since I am at the end of week 37, I thought it wise to get the birth announcements pre-made to take the hospital with us. All we will have to do is fill in the information and pop them into the pre-addressed, pre-stamped envelopes and send them on their way.
This is the (again) simple design that I came up with last night at my friend Kerry's house, whilst stamping at her kitchen table. There are many other baubles/embellishments that I could have added, but I don't really want to deal with any complexity at this point it time. Since baby's gender is still unknown (our choice) I went with the celery color as something neutral. DH picked out the elephant and I used the "information" stamp from a baby set given to me at the last shower. The card has no inside to it. I could actually simply send it as a postcard, but am a bit leary about that idea at present. It would be less expensive...
