Birth of my Great Great Nephew

Hi all it's been another one of them days. I have not had a minute to myself.  Why is it everyone wants you at the same time.  I love to help out but when you are drawn in six different ways it is tiring.  Listen to me an old grump, usually I am not in demand but today I was telephoned, emailed, accosted in the the street ( by an elderly lady who thinks I am here to run after her all the time, she has a daughter but calls on me first), oh well I may be in the position one day (no chance).

Enough of my moans, I am just getting round to to look at the posts for today and thought I would post the card I made for my niece's grandson (I think that makes him my Great Great Nephew). He was born at 0030 this morning and weight 6lb 10oz and they are both well.  My niece lives in Spain and a lady made her a card to bring over and she was not happy with it (seems she forgot I made cards) and asked me to rearrange it somehow.  Well glue, scissors etc and I was able to get near enough what she wanted.  Wait till she sees the one I made, huh she will wish she had picked me (full of myself tonight).

The ingredients are:

8x8 card
Green spotty paper and glittered Bumble bee paper from Forever Friends New Arrival paper pad
Spellbinder Grand Labels |One
Spellbinders Labels Twenty Three
Sentiment printed from PC
Embelishments from Great Expressions Card Decorations
Pearls from stash

I hope Kalum (my great nephew) and his partner Emma like this card, I am just longing for my chance at hugging baby William, which will be soon I hope.  I really need to become a bit more proficient at taking photographs as this does not show the real card.

Well ladies I am away to have a trawl of today's post, nearly bedtime and boy I am looking forward to that.

    Your card is so pretty a lovely creation. I love the green so fresh looking.
    Congrats to you Nephew and his partner on the birth of baby William, and of course to you becoming a great Aunty.
    I hope it's not too long before you get a cuddle of the wonderful little bundle of joy.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
