TMS #341 Just Us Girls #333 & She's here!

Well I would have a frowny face right now because I see I goofed up and didn't get my card linked over at TMS  #341 in time :(  for some reason I had in my feeble brain that it closed on Monday.  Oh well, I'm still so jazzed about what happened this week that it would take a lot more than that to get me down.  Plus the Just Us Girls #333 challenge is flowers so YAY it will work for that.  I highly encourage you to visit both the challenges and play along sometime soon.  

I'm not sure if you saw my last post but I was heading out to visit my two kids and their little families the next day.  So I had a wonderful first couple of days with all of them and then the BEST thing happened.  My newest little granddaughter was born while I was there!!  She was 6 days over due so I figured there was a good chance of that but as the end of my visit grew near I had to psych myself out for it not to happen.  The last morning my DIL's water broke and baby Solwyn arrived within a couple of hours.  She was born at home with a midwife what a blessing to be there!!! 
So I got to spend the first 8 hours of her life with her and I am one grateful grandma.  I used some new paper from American Crafts that I picked up one day when shopping (and waiting for baby) with my other 4 grandchildren and a stamp set that I won from Verve Stamps a couple of weeks ago. I picked their Scripture Medley 3 set.  For this card I used the most appropriate scripture for how I feel in my heart right now :o)

I'm glad that I made my card before I realized I was too late for TMS because it was a really fun sketch and got my creative juices flowing.  LOL I did get a bit carried away with the enamel dots, I had even more on it but took off a few that I could safely peel off without damaging the paper.  Oh well it doesn't have to be perfect that's one of the fun things about hand made right?
