First Time Grandma

A Friend of mine moved close to where her kids had moved so that when they had kids she would be able to see her grandbaby and they just had their first little girl.  She is thrilled to be a Grandma.

I found a whole bag of precious moments stamps at my local thrift store and this was one of them.  I colored the image with markers.
Paper is Basic Grey Sweet Pea Alyssa collection.  Used Spellbinder Deckle Rectangle to cut out the image and mounted that on a Labels 8 die.

Behind the image I used the Martha Stewart Beaded Arcs punch for the fancy lacy look.  I just punched it out on both sides of the paper to get that look.

Sentiment is from the Impression Obsession  Sentiment II set, and I stamped that onto a Spellbinder Grommet tags die.

For all of you Cricut owners, I went to Wal-mart yesterday and they have about 10 of their cartridges marked down to $29, of course the ones that I really wanted were not on sale but I did get a couple that had some cute things on it.

Hope you all have a Terrific weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
