I have done a little crafting!!!!

I made two baby cards last night for a colleague at work!!! Her daughter went in on Wednesday to deliver, and my colleague asked me if I would make a card for her! Her daughter had a little girl yesterday, Anne didn't ask me again, has her daughter had some complications and I wasn't going to annoy her by asking as she had enough on her mind! So I made the cards last night and brought them in today to her! She was thrilled with them loves how simple but fresh they look, phew cause that was exactly how I wanted them to be!

I did say if she wanted more detailed cards that I would make them this weekend, but she told me not to be stupid that she loves the cards!!! I really do hate making cards for others as I am never sure how good they are and if they truly like them! Oh and she loved the verses that I picked out for them too!!!

The first card is from Anne to her daughter



The Verse inside reads:

My daughter’s new daughter
How precious and sweet
Beautifully perfect
From her head to her feet

Ten tiny fingers
And ten tiny toes
All dressed up in lace
With a cute button nose

I look at her face
And I see her bright smile
I have to admit
Takes me back quite awhile

I remember the day
Brought my own daughter home
More precious than anything
I’d ever known

My daughter’s new daughter
How precious and sweet
Beautifully perfect
From her head to her feet

The verse inside

A little bit of heaven
Drifted down from above -
A handful of happiness,
A heartful of love.
The mystery of life,
So sacred and sweet
The giver of joy
So deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
So lovable, too
The world's sweetest miracle,
Baby Granddaughter, is you.
