Our darling Grandbaby

Yes I finally have news that at 8.58am yesterday, 11th November 2013 my darling granddaughter came into this world. Words just cannot express how I feel about this bundle of joy. My son in law sent me this photo to my phone whilst I was at work.....
Please meet Daisy Jane....and what a little beauty she is. I just cried as soon as I saw this. She weighed 7lbs 13oz so not the tiny bundle that we were told!

My Hb and I went straight down to the hospital in Southampton after work to meet her and to see my amazingly clever daughter and my wonderful son-in-law. I just gathered her up into my arms...oh my I cannot describe the feeling of love and relief I felt that she had come safely into this world.
I think the following photos just speak for themselves....I still get moist eyed when I look at my precious Daisy Jane
 Note that she is wearing Nana's hand knitted hat ;0)

My darling little girl, so very, very special.
This is a very quick post, as you can imagine life is a little hectic at the moment. We are hopefully going back on Friday to see the family again and have some more cuddles. This time we hope that they will be at back at home.

Now my card today is just coincidental as I made it on Saturday when I did not know that a baby girl was coming our way (as my daughter said, my little crafter-to-be )
It is a pink and white Christmas card which I made as I wanted to enter a few challenges....how apt is this for today's post.
 I used one of the Lili of the Valley pre printed die cut sheets they sell on Ebay which are so pretty, and very reasonable in price. They are so useful when you don't have time to colour an image. Here it is in close up.
I added some Glamour Dust to add some sparkle.
I also added a Marianne tree with lots of stars to sparkle and a pink and white ribbon too. The holly die cut is Cheery Lynn as are the little white snowflakes.  I used a snowflake embossing folder to make the pink background and the frame around the image is actually the "waste" from one of my accordion cards (how useful is that!). The sentiment is also LOTV which I also added glitter to.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Lili of the Valley use pink and white
The Ribbon Girl Lovely Lili's challenge add sparkle
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge outdoors
Winter Wonderland for a child
Crafty Little Fairies Christmas in November
Pile it On Show us your tools I have used my Big Shot die cutter for my die shapes and the embossed snowflake background. I also used my distressing tool around the edge of the sentiment.
2 Sisters  Christmas sparkle
Papertake Weekly snow and ice
Bearly Mine Christmas in Pink
The Cutie Pies Little Cuties
Creative Creations Sparkle and shine

I will be back really soon to share some more Daisy photos, in the meantime here is one of my sleeping princess just before we left last night........
Shhh we don't want to wake her.

Can you tell that I am in love..........

Back soon,

Bye for now,
