A New Grandson

Hi everyone

I hope you have all been enjoying the gorgeous sunshine that we have been having over the last week, I know I certainly have, there is nothing like sun to make everything seems so much better and on that subject I thought I would let you know that Brian is doing so much better.  This last week we have seen such a difference in him not only with his energy levels and what he can do but mentally in himself.  He is even talking about getting back to work which is a very positive step.

On top of this Brian's Son and Daughter-in-Law have become proud parents to their second little boy, a baby brother for Luke and we have been blessed with another little Grandchild.  He came into the world a little early due to Amy having pre-eclampsia weighing 5lb 11oz but Amy is doing very well now and Ryan is absolutely gorgeous, I am enjoying having lots of cuddles lol.

This brings me onto my card, and yes another Easel Card Box, have I told you that I am doing so many of these at the moment, I actually have another 3 to show you but I will leave those for another day.I hope you enjoy looking at it, the box is just perfect to fit 2 newborn vests wrapped in tissue (onsie's for our US friends), but I forgot to photograph that bit, lol.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Fussy & Fancy Friday - Card for a Child
Papertake Weekly - Truly Dimensional
One Stitch at a Time - New Baby
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the Boys
I Love Promarkers - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a Child

Thanks for dropping by and I will catch up with you again soon, in the meantime enjoy the beautiful weather I know I will.
