She's here

As of 4:48 this morning, I officially became a great grandmother.  Mother and baby doing well.  We've been to visit them in the hospital and all had a chance to cuddle the babe cuddle a bit.  The baby's such a little doll.  She has the cutest dimples.  I think the blankets in which she is bundled weigh more than her 6 lbs 7 oz.   I'll be adding a few rows to one of the hats I made her because it doesn't quite cover her tiny ears.  My granddaughter loved the cocoon I made, although she called it a taco, and will probably be bringing the baby home in it tomorrow evening.

Here is a card I made in anticipation of the occasion.  I punched the edges of the layers to give the appearance of several baby blankets.  The moons on her pj's  have glittered flocking on them.  The image is a digital stamp by Teroladas (printed once on white cs and once of the DP so I could paper piece the jammies) and the sentiment is a CTMH stamp.  
 

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:

Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenge #86 - Use Dies or Punches
Fab n Funky Challenge #204 - Spots or Stripes
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #259 - A Lotta Polka Dots

I almost forgot.

Here is Great Nana Debi with ............

  9. Congratulations! What a wonderful card for such a happy occasion! This is adorable!! I love the punch you used by MS...it's very pretty and girly. I am wondering if you used any diecuts on the card since the challenge this week at The Paper Shelter is "Punches and Dies". Can you please confirm that you used a die and which one? We'd love to have you join us so if you need to add a die of some sort to the card and repost, we'd be happy to have you. If you'd rather post another card that meets the challenge, that would be okay...but either way, we'd love to have you in our challenge. Hugs, Gail DT
