Baby Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I have good days and bad days with this burning mouth syndrome and food allergies.  I wish they could figure out what is causing it. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it; so it is very hard to determine how to treat it, what I can eat; and what I can't eat.  So frustrating.

I have been trying to create more cards; so I can take my mind off of the pain.  That works sometimes; but not always.  The biggest problem I have is trying to type these posts; due to the severe joint pain I am having from my food allergies.  

My hairdresser is having a baby boy; so I created her a baby card earlier in the month.  Her son is 20 yrs old; so this is a huge celebration for her and her husband.  His first child.  I wanted to create the one with the zoo animals riding in the little train; but I just couldn't do it.  This one turned out really cute.  I rarely get a chance to create a baby card.  I hope you enjoy it.
