Granddaughter's Baby Girl card

I followed the sketch from challenge 34 of Friday Sketchers for this card and was really pleased with it but I could scream at how bad the photos have come out and the card has already gone in the post. This photo is the best I could get of how the card looks yet the colours are still all wrong. The card is so tactile too: The soft cotton baby grow and fluffy duck, etc. It is for my step-daughter and her husband who had our first grandchild yesterday. It wasn't the birth one would hope for with an emergency cesarean and the baby whisked off to a special unit after swallowing fluid but all are doing well. I personalised the inside of the card by printing the insert with my own paper design and including the baby's names, date of birth and weight.


  1. Congratulations, Grandma! Glad to hear Mum and daughter are doing OK despite the ordeal. Wishing you all many wonderful times together getting to know each other :)

  2. Congratulations on the birth of your first grandchild!!! And sucha wonderful card for the new mum to treasure too.

    hugs Bev x
