Wednesday’s blog is something new.
Well it just doesn’t get much newer or more magical than this!
We’ve got some very happy news:
That young couple have been through so much together.
All is good. All is well.
And it’s a little baby girl.
And I decided to do 2 jobs at the same time:
blog AND make their New Arrival card!
Here’s what I wrote yesterday,
when we still had no idea whether it would be a boy or a girl…
Rummaged around and decided – on this auspicious occasion – to part with that fabby shaving foam piece which came out so well on the TV!
Dug deep and found those lovely lacy swallows.
Stamped them in Cornflower Blue.
It was certainly heading towards the Boy zone…..
Works a treat…
While we’re in Line Sentiment mode,
let’s see what else fits…
Time for some colour.
Mmm…tricky. boy, girl, girl, boy….
Months ago, when Laura first found out she was having a baby, I told her that one of the very few pleasant surprises in life for me personally had been NOT knowing the sex of the newborns. She took on board what I said, and so now I’m eating my words!!!
No, not really.
I still can remember that amazing, magical moment when the Doctors said, “You have a little daughter,”
(actually, Grace was born in Germany, so she said, “Sie haben eine kleine Tochter!”
And 2 years later, the delivery team in the American hospital all said together, “It’s a boy!”
So either way, it is a miracle, and either way a wonderful surprise.
So back to colouring in. Yellow it is.
I used the Spectrum Noir pencils.
Round the edges with the chisel end of a blue ProMarker.
I’m going way too boy here, aren’t I!
Back it on a nice warm yellow
and add a bit more orange and yellow to the birdies!
Needs a little personal something…
Dave and me up on our perch,
and a baby bird in the cradle…
between Laura and Trevor.
and a little p.s. from the 2 oldies.
But I have to wait to do the insert.
So we went to the hospital early evening.
En route, we passed 3 magpies.
“3’s for a girl!” Dave and I both called out simultaneously.
So we spend an hour with her, and then left her to it. because, let’s face it, there was very little we could do to help!
Then at 3 in the morning, Trevor called us, to tell us the miracle baby Evie had arrived.
So just a quick addition to the card, and off to the hospital again!
