Funny story!

Hello!  How are you today?  Have you been outside yet?!  It is beautiful!  There is a cool crisp Fall feel in the air!  I know it is too early for Fall and that it will probably warm up again, but this sure is a nice little treat! :)

Ok, so I have a funny story for you!  I happen to have the world's most amazing Grandma!  She is 96!!  Still spry and spunky as they come!  She is very big on card giving and so for the last year or so she has asked me if I would make her cards to send out to her peeps!  Total labor of love and I am happy to do it for her.  She never misses a date though!  You can expect a card from her for every birthday and every anniversary and every other occasion in between!  Well, as some of you may oldest son and his sweetie are expecting our first grand-pumpkin in about 10 weeks.  So, my grandma asked if  I would make her a baby card and send it to her so she can sign it and send it back to the parents-to-be when it is time! :)  So, it will go from here up north and then back to here!  She is so cute! :)  Here is the card I made for her:

These are the colors that have been chosen for the shower theme.  The mommy-to-be is partial to elephants so I thought this stamp would be perfect. :)

I used two different textures, both feel like 'baby' to me!

The details:
Stamps: Ciao, Baby! and Baby Steps (retired)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla
Ink: Smokey Slate and Primrose Petals
Punches and Dies: 7/8" Scallop Circle, Square Lattice EF and Polka Dot EF
Extras: Dimensionals

Hope that you have a great day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
