Woo Hoo............Bet you cannot guess why!!!


Its definitely Woo Hoo as yesterday my first Great Grandchild was born, named Lewis.

No you say, cannot believe it, someone as young as you.................lol Am so longing to see and hold him, but at the moment am still not free from infection so will have to wait....sob sob. I was going out on Monday to buy a nice card, but knew it wouldn't go down too well......... so made this one.............the picture (lightly dry embossed) was a free download from Cora at http://digitaltuesday.blogspot.com/
thank you Cora.
Hopefully my cheque will soften the blow of the card...............lol

Am off now to cook the Sunday Lunch, a bit late I know but I have been journalling and sort of lost track of time......
Nearly forgot to tell you that over at Gingersnaps there is a super swop just started..........not cards this time but Beer Mats..........how cool is that........ Thank you for popping by and sharing in my good news. Will catch up with you all later; have a great day, Annette x

Congratulations! Your card is stunning.

Ozstuff said...

Hi Netty, Sadly my two daughter were late starters in having their children as is often the case today so my chances of ever seeing a great-grandchild are slim. My oldest grandchild is only 12.
I love the card you made for your first great-grandchild. Congratulations.
