A Baby Card, Staring Beatrice & Bucky!

Good Friday Morning!! 
Here in Missouri its cold and a very rainy day which in my eyes isn't a bad thing, instead I think of days like this the perfect day to sit and scrapbook! Can't be outside so why not be happy with some great paper, adhesive and scissors!! Right! Speaking of scrapbooking... I made a card a few days ago for my sweet SIL, she and my brother will be having their first baby in May!  I'm hosting a baby shower for her in April and thought I better get ahead of the game and make her a card and start on the party favors before I run out of time! 
Since Beatrice and Bucky the beaver are life partners I thought they'd be the perfect characters for my card... 
Bucky is driving Sweet Beatrice to the hospital! Hee Hee... I love it! My brother and SIL are having a boy so I love that the license plate on this car says "Oh Boy"!
I used  my new Cricut Expression with the "Nate's ABC's" cartridge! 
All the papers I used on this card are from the Beatrice paper line.


I'm guessing everyone is ready for the winner of the Provo Craft Cuttlebug and my papers...
since its so hard for me to pick I decided to pick the 25th comment since today is March 25th!
Soooo the winner is Lyn, who said: "Nico is beautiful. Congrats on having such a successful blog. =) 
-Linda"  Thanks Linda! You'll be getting a nice prize pack in the mail next week!! Let's us know how you like it all! 

One last thing... 
I have a huge Happy Birthday today for my dear friend, Heather! We met at a crop, gosh maybe 4 or 5 years ago... can't remember b/c it seems we've been friends forever! We sat at the same table at a crop and became instant friends, you know when you meet someone and you just "click", well that was us! Heather's not only my good friend but she's the graphic designer for my company.  I'm not a graphic designer and desperately needed one and she was perfect for the job! I can't tell you how well we work together... I sketch things out send them to her and she comes back with exactly what I wanted! We travel together teaching at crops, she always helps at all the "Nikki Sivils" events here locally, going to CKC's to play and we even went to an American Idol concert together!
So here's so a long friendship... and a HUGE happy birthday to her!
Love ya H!! 

Have a great weekend! -Nikki
