What will it be ???

As some of you know my daughter is having another baby and were so excited to have him or her join their big brother so to let everyone know what she is having we made a special card.

I used spellbinders banner die, spellbinders circles and Cricut create a critter for this cute giraffe.

We made a mixture of silver paint and dish soap ( at the bottom of this post) we typed the gender on paper then cut out and painted with the paint and sent a penny to everyone to scratch off and reveal the gender.

What do you think little girl pink or little boy blue?

Prepare your mixture. Two parts paint for every one part dish soap. Mix it up good, but try not to stir too aggressively - you don't want too many little bubbles.
Use thin, even layers. Don't worry if you can still see through it after the first coat, it will most likely take two or three coats to get it all covered.

Be sure to check back this week to see what are new family member will be!
