1 month old!

My grandaughter Addison will be 1 month old this coming Tuesday.  It's hard to believe a month has gone by already!  I thought the card would put a big smile on my daughter's face.  It has been a crazy whirlwind month for her...waiting nine months..realizing the day had come to deliver and being scared...then back home 2 days later with her little bundle of joy!!  Of course now the really hard work starts...she is exhausted with all the round the clock feedings and has only been out of the house only on a few occasions by herself since Addison was born.  Anyway, everything went well, both baby and mom are healthy and that's whats most important!  Addison seems to have her days and nights mixed up a bit, and I couldn't help but think this cute DigiDarla Blessing of Heaven image would be perfect for my card.  This is how my daughter wished Addison slept at night!  The black background paper is from a Karen Foster biggie bundle called "Throughout The Year" #3.  It's very hard to tell in the picture, but I used a Clear Glittering Gel Ink pen to color on the stars and give them some sparkle.  The pink & black frame was cut from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, and I placed a pearl in the center of each scallop.  The tag is a Spellbinder Shapeabilities die cut.  I printed the sentiment myself, and lastly added the little number 1 next to her.  Believe it or not I cut it out of a birthday invitation that I had saved from a couple years ago..I thought it fit perfectly!  Thanks for stopping by and seeing my creations!
