Default I need creative suggestions!

Ok, I'm due to have a baby the end of November and I REALLY wanted to combine Christmas cards with the baby announcement. Only problem is I don't have any creative ideas on how to do it and make it cute! Have any of you seen or done something that you could suggest? Oh yeah, and thanks to a modest baby who was crossing ankles over the all important anatomy, we don't know if it's a boy or a girl!! We already have two boys (6&4) that I'd love to combine in a picture. Any suggestions would be appreciated! TIA,
Heidi

How about something along the lines of you've received the best Christmas gift?

And congratulations!

When my son was born (long before I stamped!) I computer generated a picture of an ornament hanging off a branch. Then I cut out the middle and put a picture of him in it. The sentiment was similar to Benniesma's.

"A new addition to our Christmas Tree!"

"Our most precious gift."

"Love is a priceless gift."

Congratulations from me too!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Sorry - I get a little corny (and perhaps border on sacrilegious), but how about "A Child is Born" from the holiday mini. If your modest child turns out to be a daughter, you could past daughter in pink over the Son in the sentiment. If the baby is a boy, you can put "Us, too" and birth details in side.

im not sure what sets you have, but how about 2 or 4 squares on the front with the rattle/ornament from the sketch an event set....one way it's a rattle, and if you turn it over, and stamp right at the ribbon, it can be an ornament....then use any of the clever sayings everyone else has said!!

just a thought
