Congratulations Are In Order!!

Hello everyone and a very, very happy Friday to you all!

I am over the moon putting this post together for you all.

You see, I have some AWESOME news to impart! Smiles.

In May of next year, my husband and I will become Grandparents!! How fabulously AWESOME is that???? Tee hee.

So of course, I need a rather special card to celebrate. And the image that came to mind right away was this lovely Couple Expecting from Make It Crafty.

Isn’t it so perfect for a newly expecting couple?! Smiles.

To bring these two to life I used my Copics in the following shades:-

My pom pom trim and lace are from the crafty department of a local store.

And the pearl string is from Live & Love Crafts.

As is the heart charm.

My hearts I cut out by hand, then I distressed the edges of them with my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool. I very gently curved them before sticking them down.

The teddy bear charm is a very old one, and I cannot remember where it came from.

The sentiment is my own, computer generated one.

The hearts either side of the couple, I filled in with the initials of my daughter & her partner. 

I hope that this is a fitting keepsake for their first (parents to be) memories.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
