New grandbaby should arrive late today or tomorrow!

My DD is in the hospital right now and the process will begin shortly. We know she is having a boy, so I made this card to welcome my newest grandson. I wish I could be there, but alas, she's in London, England, so I'll have to wait for a picture later.

This card is a Featured Stamper card, FS64, from last Sunday on SCS. You can see the deets here. My card is based on this card by Michelle - aka (Sf9erfan). The little lamb is a digital image from Pink Petticoat. I coloured it with Copic Markers and added some Arctic Ice Stickles. I love how it turned out. I used a white base and layered that with Brocade Blue and Soft Sky. Groovy Guava was used for the accent colour and the ribbon. The two largest circles were cut and embossed using the Nestabilities system in my Cuttlebug. The sentiment is the only thing stamped on this card and I can't remember who made it. I do know it was a clear, acrylic stamp though.

Oh, I had fun with the sketch challenge today. Here is my card for SC174. I love the You Know You're Old When... set from Gina K. Designs. This set is going to be used over and over and over again and that's because I'm of an age where all my friends are "gettin' up there", so to speak!

I started with Taken with Teal for the base and used some DP from Doodlebug Designs. I must admit that I had to refer to the SU colour wheel for an accent colour and so that's why the Apricot Appeal shows up on the card. I like the combination. I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and Copic Markers. The addition of some silver brads completed the look. It's going to an old friend who will be 61 next week! Oh yeah, the inside of the card says, "everything hurts ~~ and what doesn't hurt doesn't work."
