Hi Friends.
A quick post to share the card I can now show you.....for my youngest Son and DIL....... Yes!.. my Grandson has arrived!  He was born on Monday weighing in at 7lbs 12ozs. and they have called him Thomas (photo at end of post).

Here is the card .....

A popular LOTV stamp this one... coloured with copics and The 'Special Day' is also an LOTV stamp.  The banner is Sue Wilson with a computer generated sentiment. I coloured white pearls blue with my copics so they matched. All papers and embellishments from stash.The large scallop dies are Spellbinders that I have had years!

And here he is...............

I can't wait to travel to London for my first cuddle!

OK .....I've some buttons to stitch on a little cardigan..... so best get on!

Have a good weekend everyone, take care and keep safe and well.

Crafty hugs
Carole xx


  1. Congratulations "Granny Carole" Thomas is a beautiful little baby. You'll have a wonderful time in London ....

    Your card is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about it and a rocker with a rocking horse image um! good thinking. What a lovely sentiment stamp too and soooo
    useful. One I shall be looking out for. Hugs, Barbxx

  2. Oh my gosh! Carole: he's gorgeous and handsome and precious and...a blessing! I'm beyond thrilled for you! How fortunate he is to have you for a Grandma! Did you feel your heart expand about a zillion times with love for this darling bundle? Although I'm certainly old enough to be a granny, I don't have children of my own; being Aunty C to my niece and nephew, though, is my best. job. EVER! Hope those London cuddles happen soon and please, do share photos! Your beautiful card will delight the new mommy and daddy; something to be placed into a keepsake box for Thomas to treasure when he's older...Thomas: fabulous name! I'm so thrilled for you, your husband and your family! Babies = joy!
