Zoo babies by Stampin' Up!

A baby is a blank cheque made payable to the human race. ~Barbara Christine Seifert

I don't know about you but I know a LOT of people that are pregnant right now.  I usually don't have too many baby showers to go to on a regular basis, but now my daughter's friends are starting to get married and have babies.  I needed a card for a baby shower that I am going to next week and I knew the PERFECT stamp set to use!  I love Zoo Babies and knew that was the set I was going to use.
