A new Challenge at Diva's by Design and and some wonderful news.

Good morning friends.
I am here to tell you of the new Challenge starting today over at Diva's by Design followed by some wonderful news which I will keep you in suspense about till I have told you of our challenge.
The challenge at Diva's is being sponsored by 2cuteink and the theme is CAS. They really do have some cute stamps and you can see some wonderful inspiration from our DT members at Diva's.
I have used Snowflake Owl - he is so cute.
I hope I haven't gone overboard with the embellies for a CAS card. 

The papers are 25 days of Christmas by Simple Stories.

And now for my wonderful News.

I am now a Grandma.

Evie-Maie was born yesterday at 29 weeks weighing just 2lb 5oz. She is doing very well and breathing by herself. I can't wait to hold her.  I may be biased but she is absolutely gorgeous. Kayleigh (mum) is doing very well after having a caesarean. Congratulations Kayleigh and Ryan.
They needed to get her out quickly because she was getting distressed and so she is a little bruised.
She was trying so hard to suck her thumb but the band of material was obstructing any chance of this. I have only known her for a very short while but my heart is full of love for her.

Whilst I am in an extremely soppy mood - an update of our second baby. I think she has decided that she needs a whole sofa to herself.

Love and hugs to my two babies.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Crafting Musketeers - Christmas in October
ABC challenge - 3 or more patterned papers
Squigglefly - Christmas Card - Christmas Card

Thank you for your comments and I will be visiting your blogs very soon.
 Take care from a very proud mum.
