Sunday Snippet Card - Joy

Evening Everyone,

I have a most appropriately titled card for Pixie's Snippets Playground today because it certainly has been an afternoon of joy for us. Our fourth great-grandchild was born just hours ago. Her name is Lacie and she is gorgeous. As if that wasn't enough, my number was drawn over at the playground too. What a day this has turned out to be.  And, before I forget, here's the card.
I've used another Penny Black Stickeroo, this one is from the Winter Fantasy sheet, for the topper. The patterned paper is from BoBunny's Believe Collection. I found a bunch of teal card snippets and used them for the matting and layering. Ribbon and dew drops finish the card.

Back
I used what was left of the patterned paper to decorate the inside and back.

There was even enough to decorate the inside of the envelope ... something I don't do often enough!

Here's Lacie, born 3.30pm today, weighing in at 6lb 3oz. She's a wee bit cold which is why she is wrapped up so well. She has been put in a warmed cot and her blood is being monitored on an hourly, otherwise she is fine. That hat is hiding a lot of lovely dark hair.

After such an eventful day, I am now more than ready for bed. I wonder what tomorrow will bring :)

Happy Crafting,
