I am glad you all liked the little jacket I have knitted my grandbaby and I wanted to show you a couple of other things too before he/she puts in an appearance. If you remember in my Knitting Nana post here I showed you how I found my old retro patterns from the 1980s when my 2 were babies. One I treasure is this one
We went down to visit my daughter and SIL on Friday evening and took them out to dinner. The nursery is all ready and I was delighted to see the Moses basket is ready and waiting. We smiled when we saw who is in there.......
Here is Katie in close up... she does not look bad for 26 does she?
She will have to make way very soon for this sweet bump...
So we really have reached the final week of my darling girl's pregnancy, her due date is this Friday...8th November but obviously the little one will decided when he or she wants to put in an appearance.
My card today is not a baby card but a vintage style Christmas card with a wonderful nativity image. It is my design team GD card using a wonderful pre-coloured image from Nicecrane Designs It is another image from the Adorable Christmas sheet here. I love these images so much, they really epitomise the Christmas spirit for me.
The backing paper is a digital download which I have embossed with gold embossing powder to give a frosty effect.This is picked up on the gold card too with the embossed holly leaves. The hymn sheet is another download from last year. The holly leaves are Cheery Lynn. I have distressed the edge of the green card to add to the vintage feel and added some Vintage Photo distress ink. Some gold edged red ribbon and red pearl add the finishing touches.

Thank you all for being so supportive and excited for this imminent birth. Your comments are so encouraging and I know you are all thinking of my darling girlie and our SIL as they await the birth of our first grandchild. We are all counting the days.
Enjoy the week, back soon,
Bye for now,
