If you read my blog you already know that I just had another granddaughter named Emory. A couple of weeks ago we went down to meet her. As a grandmother, can I just say, she is one of the cutest babies. When I was there she was sleeping pretty well so that her parents got a few hours sleep in between feedings. After I left, Emory started giving her parents a hard time. Of course, I think it is because she misses me. Her parents just roll their eyes.
I made this card with Emory in mind. Her parents decorated her room in coral colors so I thought it was appropriate to make a card using Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. I used the stamp set called Something For Baby. It has a set of matching Framelits called Baby’s First. This is one of those sets that you will keep forever. Babies are always being born and it will never go out of style.

It is another fun Friday when Jackie, Buffy and I participate in our Stamp Off Challenge. This week our challenge is just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Here is my card:
I just realized while I am posting that I actually followed the colors of the challenge (even though it is not a color challenge). I didn’t mean to but I guess I need to make up for my crooked Tic Tac Toe from last week so I am following the letter of the law this week!
Also, please notice that I used Blushing Bride, a doily and Burlap Ribbon. I think it must be a first for the doily and burlap. I also just noticed I cut the ribbon incorrectly but hand made cards aren’t supposed to be perfect so I am leaving it the way it is.
Let’s talk about that doily. The proper name is actually Lace Doilies and they are in the Occasions Catalog. The reason I bought them is because one side is Very Vanilla and one side is Whisper White so you an choose which color you want to use. I like that!
The sentiment “love” came from a set of Thinlits called.Sunshine Wishes. The arrow is from Love Notes and the Embossing Folder is called Falling Petals. The petals are actually little hearts.
