I am a Great Grandmother......

I am sorry that I have not been about at all in the last week, it has been a joyful and a tearful (well a lot really) time. Thank you to one very special person ( Lindsay) for letting me get my concerns of my chest.
As you have seen by the title I became a great Grandma last Wednesday as my granddaughter was rushed into hospital on the Tueday as she was having breathing problems. Thats another story which I really do not want to go into. The out come was she was induced on Weds morning and at 12:54pm my beautiful great granddaughter Isabella Vivian was born weighing 4lb 8oz and 6 weeks early, she was put into an incubator to start with, as my DIL says she has now been hatched and now into a cot lol..

Unfortunately my granddaughter was taken ill again afterwards and at present she has been sedated and being treated, again I do not want to go into details of the reasons. As you can imagine we are all very concerned for her and hoping that she gets well very soon.
I cannot wait to give her the cards and here they are.
This one is for my Great Granddaughter welcoming her to our world
The papers and image came from Jems Design CD Peek a Boo.
I added the text from MCS.
Of course for this I had to use my own digi Crib.
8x8 white card, Spellbinders Decorative Labels One
Cuttlebug Embossing folder used for the hearts which I cut out and embossed.
Image coloured with Promarkers, ribbon, flowers from stash.
I really do not do girly girly cards so found this quite hard.
Lastly the other week Lindsay made a keepsake box for a baby boy and I said if it was for a girl I would have bought it, well Lindsay pulled out all the stops and made me one and it is worth every penny. Thank you so much.
Thank you all for popping by and leaving comments
and I will try and catch up with you all soon.
