..I know heaven must exist.”

Kate Meets Little Sister

My fourth granddaughter was born a couple of days ago.  I have been in Arizona this past week for the blessed event.  As of last night when I boarded the plane back to Seattle (and wishing that I would have made my stay just one day longer), this sweet little girl’s parents still had not given her a name.  They have a few favorites but wanted to see her and meet her before deciding on the final one.  Well whatever they do end up naming her, she is pure heaven to grandma.

Of course I had to make her a card!  lol

I recently saw this darling die cut shaped card and designed my card based on it.

The card base uses the largest Classic Circle Nestabilities die.  Scissors were used to cut away the pie shaped section and a bit of the bottom (which was cut parallel to the horizontal cut of the pie shape).

A second circle was cut as the base on which to adhere all the papers and embellishments.  This circle when adhered to the main card base hides the fold.  The largest circle die was also used to cut the designer papers.

The wheels used a 1-3/8″ circle punch and the smallest Nestabilities Eyelet Circle die.  The handle was made using a flourish from the 12″ Illumination Border die.

Even though my plane landed hours ago, I’m still floating on air!  However, there is a house full of tasks that need some attention!  Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you, too, have a happy day!
