Now my friends, I would really appreciate your comments on this one - one of my work colleagues, and a very dear friend, is about to become a grandma for the first time and I cannot express here just how excited she is. Her son and his partner live a five hour drive away so she's had her suitcase in the back of the car for over a week. Baby Girl is due to make an appearance this Friday but knowing first babies she could well be overdue.
Anyway, as a department at work we wanted to give her a card and I was asked to make it to celebrate the occasion. I wanted the card to be sweet but not over-the-top sugary so I was rummaging amongst my stamps and unearthed a House Mouse stamp that had never seen ink and I thought it was spot-on.
I coloured the House Mouse with ProMarkers and spent a bit of time fiddling around to get the image to fall outside of the Nestability die.
Other items used are Papermania Regency papers, Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, Quicklets, Prima flowers, Dovecraft brads, ribbon and lettering from stash.
What do you think? Is it suitable for the occasion? I'm entering this into the "Celebration" challenge No 52 over at The Secret Crafter as a new grandchild is certainly cause to celebrate!
Thanks for dropping in, always lovely to see you.
