Today’s Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie and Buffy is to make a baby card (well it doesn’t have to be a card as you will soon see!).
The timing of this theme could not be better! Right now I am in Alabama visiting my brand new granddaughter, Emory Jade. Let me tell you. She is just beautiful. She is only a couple of hours old here.
Mary and Zachary (Emory’s Mom & Dad) came to our house at Christmas. Mary had been here before and had seen a wreath I had made using paper flowers. She asked if I would cover a giant “E” with flowers to put over Emory’s crib. The E was probably 2 – 2 1/2 feet in length. I decided it would be more fun for Emory and Mary if she helped. We spent a lot of hours cutting out flowers, glueing them together and then glueing them on the E. We used a variety of new and retired Stampin’ Up! dies.
Here is a picture of the E on Emory’s wall. I think it came out pretty.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made for their baby themed project.
We interrupt the regularly scheduled program to make an announcement. I have a new grand daughter! Her name is Emory Jade and she is just beautiful. Emory was born on February 27th at 5:27 EST. She weighed a whopping 8 lbs 7 oz! My children were all big babies so that was not a surprise!
So let me introduce Emory Jade.
She looks pretty peaceful in this picture but apparently her first night in this world was not a happy one. I can’t blame her a bit. She was all warm and cozy and then all of a sudden here she is with bright lights and craziness.
