It's a Girl!

One of my coworkers just had her first grandchild. Her daughter just delivered a baby girl on Friday. I bought her a cute frame for her first grandbaby picture and made her a card! The stamp is from Rubber Soul. I won this set from Julie Campbell, over at Stamped in His Image, awhile ago. I stamped it on pink felt and added dazzling diamonds to the outer edge. I added a piece of vintage lace. I also used my score pal to emboss just the outer edges. (It is subtle so you may have to click on it to really see it!) The sentiment is by SU!. I cut it out and added a little pearl to the i. I hope she likes it!
On a personal note, I got a call from the school district that Cortney got accepted into Elim Christian School for the Disabled! She will start there is April. It is such an incredible school and is so equipped to handle her needs. She can remain there until she is 21. Finally, she will have a school to call her own! No more bouncing around from school district to school district!

Such a darling card; simple but so elegant. That is great news about Cortney. I'm sure she will do so much better in the same school. Kids really do need continuity to help them learn. Linda
