Miss Me?

I've surely missed you!! Pardon me why I explain. I've been away for a while trying to get my health issues under control. Well, the doctor's have finally diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia and I'm now on a medication for that condition. It is incredible how much it's helped me. I still have some hip issues, but I'm in therapy for that. So, thank you for all of your prayers! Next......little Miss Maggie turned 2 a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe it's been 2 years since that precious little angel became our granddaughter. And...........she's going to be a big sister!! YES! My daughter-in-law and son are expecting their second child in September. Am I excited??? YES!!!!!!
So, I'm happy to be back crafting and to share my wonderful news with you. Now...since I've been away for a while, I wanted my first crafty project to use a sketch from my fav sketch blog......2Sketches4U.
So, here is my take on Laura's sketch #46: (I flipped the sketch)

I found this precious image online (it's a free vintage image). I printed it, chalked it and cut it with my handy oval cutter. I added this great gingham ribbon, the scalloped edge (Cricut - Accent Essentials), a couple of little butterflies and a few little blue pearls. The paper is from the SEI Morning Meadow collection and it's called Breeze. It has a beautiful shimmer to it. I think this card could be used as a new baby card for a biological or adopted child or even a Thank You card for a baby gift. Well, thanks for stopping by today and I hope to be "seeing" all of you real soon! Hugs........:)
