Hello friends. Feels like forever since I've been on my blog, even though it's only been a few days! A busy couple of days though, as I'm happy to tell the world that I am finally a GRANDMA! Our granddaughter Adelaide Grace (Addy) made her appearance a week early on Tuesday, and is absolutely beautiful! Her mom and dad are just thrilled and everyone is doing fine. I will do better with pictures tomorrow when we go to visit, but here is one to tide you over! :0)
And what a perfect challenge this week at Merry Monday, as we are to use a gift for our card, and I feel like I've been given the best gift of all! Most of my stamps with gifts/presents on them are of animals holding a gift, and those just didn't fit my mood today, so I made my card into a gift instead. Take a look:
This card came together very quickly (don't ya love it when that happens?!!!) and I really like how elegant it looks! I used a SU! (Sizzix) embossing folder on a piece of gold cs, and then wrapped "Milk Chocolate" seam binding ribbon (The Craft Spot) around it like I was wrapping a gift. I added a tag made from "Peaceful Pinecones" and "Fillable Frames - #9" (PTI), and also added a few rainstones. Again, very quick and simple, but I really love how it turned out! :0)
There's still some time to play along, so check out all the other cards and info over at the Merry Monday site right here .
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonder weekend...I know I will! :0)
