1st Mother's Day

Good Afternoon!

First off I have to share some wonderful news with you all!  I am going to be a Nana come November.  Our daughter Lori and our son in law Tim are expecting their first child!  We are over the moon happy, to say the least!  I have had to keep this secret for over 5 weeks, I think it has been the hardest thing I have ever done lol  Friends and neighbors kept sharing news of all of the new babies that would be joining their families and I couldn't say one word, I just smiled and gushed about their joyous news.  Well now I have some of our very own!  I can't wait!

We had a 'photo shoot at their favorite Vineyard over the weekend as they were eager to announce to the world.  Here are a few of their fun photos!

Tim and Lori holding the 'clothesline' complete with little booties (that's how they told us) a onesie with, my sibling has paws (which I made) and my grandbaby's 1st ultrasound photo.
A glass of red, a bottle of white, and a glass of Baby Gherkins lol  We also had their engagement photos taken here and in September of 2015 they were married here.  I am thinking in 18+ years perhaps we will have a Graduation Party here.

So yeah, it has been all baby all the time in our houses!
Okay, now on to today's card:
I actually started this card with water color paper and proceeded to paint on some beautiful pastel colors.  I also spritzed it with Heidi Swapp Color Mist in Gold.  I don't know why I didn't take a picture of it before assembling.  I think you can still see enough of the pretty colors.  

Many dies layered upon each other.  This was a very FUN card to make, definitely a Labor of Love!
