This past Friday my 5th granddaughter was born.

I’ve made a butterfly mobile for her nursery that I will share over at the CLASSroom soon, but I also wanted to make a card for each of her two big sisters.  Kira Rain is such a lucky little girl to have them to love her and help her along her journey.  I wasn’t sure just what sort of card to make for them until I saw the Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today.  The theme of “love” was perfect.

When I look at the sweet faces of my granddaughters, I am so grateful to all those who have given so much to keep freedom and hope alive for them and for me.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  God bless you this Memorial Day.


Stamps: SU “Three Little Words”

Papers: Memory Box “Cotton Candy”; Neenah “Classic Cream”; Crate Paper “Pretty Party” Designer Paper

Inks: SU “Chocolate Chip”

Accessories: Memory Box “Darla Butterfly” and “Vivienne Butterfly” Dies; Rhinestones; Ribbon


Oh and by the way if you haven’t already seen it, I have a sketch challenge going on until June 1st!  CHECK IT OUT!! There is still time to join in and give it a try.
