Colleen and Randy's kids have been busy!
Yes, another grandchild arrived a couple weeks ago, this time a grandson.
And, after my horrible delay at getting a card to them on the arrival of their granddaughter, I wasn't going to miss a beat on this grandchild. Even though I was on vacation at the time, I knew ahead of time it was going to be a boy, so I had the card made, the envelope addressed and stamped. The moment I knew of the baby's arrival, the card went in the mail!
Without further ado, here it is:
It's a very old stamp from Stampabilities. I used to stamp these on white paper that had a leather-ish look to it. But, I can't find it anymore, so I bought some 'pleather' (vinyl fake leather) from JoAnn's and stamped the image with StazOn, cut out and popped them up on a Nesties diecut. I like the pleather better than the cardstock because it provides a soft texture to the card. Can't remember where the sentiment is from (sorry!), but the scallop border is a Fiskars punch and the button is made from a PTI button die. The tag is a punch from Martha Stewart. Patterned paper from my stash, cardstock from PTI also.
Congrats Colleen and Randy on grandchild #8!
Thanks for peeking!
