Monday

We have a lady who comes into our office once a week (or more if we need more help), who helps out. She's 79 and she can work hard! Last week she came in and announced the birth of her very first great grandchild. She said: "I've always been a great Grandma, but now it's official". So, I made this card to wish her congratulations on her brand new grandbaby. The image is one of the only baby images I have, mostly because I don't know alot of people who are having babies. It's from Bundle of Joy, from SU. I stamped the little bear and colored him with several different shades of brown, then went over him with ivory, using my copics. The card base is pirouette pink, layered with kiwi kiss and basic grey lily kate. I cut a circle with more lily kate and a scallop with kiwi kiss. I mounted the bear on it, grounding him with a ribbon, tied through the hardware with the matching sentiment. I think doodle this goes well with the bundle set, so I stamped a swirly and added a cute little flower.

Oh, that is just darling. Bet she loves it. That little flower on the flourish is a lovely soft touch.
