Granny's Rocker

As some of you may know, my daughter is expecting twins and from testing done last week we know that they do not have the same medical problems as our first grandson that we lost last fall. So we are getting excited to be grandparents and be able to hold these new little blessings. So as I made this card today I was thinking about rocking these two new little babies and this card made me smile.


The image is from Beccy's Place called Gran's Chair. I used the pre-colored version. The plaid paper is from Imagine That! Digis by Kris from the set called Pregnant Peggy. I cut the image with Spellbinder's Standard Circles. The blue background piece is die cut with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitched Rectangles. I inked the edges of the circle with Mowed Lawn distress ink. The sentiment is doe cut from MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. The sentiment is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. I used The Paper Players sketch for inspiration.



I am entering these challenges:
I hope my card makes you smile today too. Make it an awesome week. I think I need this week to recover from Girl Scout day camp last week. LOL! Back to work tomorrow. Ugh!

Twins! How exciting for you and your family Donna, and I'm so pleased that the tests are showing that the babies are healthy, awesome news!
The card you created is wonderful. I love all the beautiful bright colours in the background paper and I think the blue was a fabulous choice for the solid areas. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy
