Congratulations Baby Card Using CTMH Lucy Paper and Cricut Artbooking

Guest Designer for Use It Tuesday for August 13, 2013
Use An Un-inked Stamp
Hello to all my crafting friends.  I am so delighted that you are visiting my blog today.  I am here to share a creation of mine as Guest Designer for Use It Tuesday.  I love having a challenge that requires you to use up your old stash.  This one was easy for me; because I have a lot of un-inked stamps.  I buy them and never have time to use them all or I don't have any occasion to use them; like this one. 
My best friend from Junior high just became a grandmother and I finally had a chance to use my baby stamp set.  There haven't been any girls born in her family for 62 years; and they finally got the first baby girl!  All boys for the past 62 yrs.  Can you believe that?  You talk about excited.  Plus - it is her first grandchild.  So - I combined Congrats for the new baby from the grandmother side of it.  This is a very important day in so many ways.  I am so happy for her and her family.   I had to use pink since this was such a very special occasion.  I haven't bought baby paper for quite a while; because I haven't needed any since I started making cards.  The photo doesn't do these colors justice.  It is mostly pink with a light yellow background and is a gorgeous paper.  The buttons and bling are also pink. 

I just found out recently that I am going to be a Great-grandmother to my step-granddaughter's baby.  She is due the end of January.  I am not really old enough to be a Great Grandmother.  LOL!!  I don't think it has hit me yet; but it will be fun when it happens.  She is in Mississippi; so it will be hard to see the new baby except on the Internet.

So sorry that my pictures are not very clear.  This paper does not like to be photographed.  LOL.
