You put the grand

My cousin Lyndsey, who I babysat for some 29 years ago had a baby girl last week, Brielle Lee.  My Aunt Marian has been waiting for grandchildren for some time.  Her other daughter, Heather is 15 weeks pregnant so she is exciting for her growing family.  She sent me a load of pictures yesterday.  Mo's challenge is love all around so I thought this image of "Tom and Tilly" along with the sentiment from TLC, Create was a perfect card to send to my aunt and uncle for being new grandparents.
For my second card, I used this weeks Splitcoast sketch and another TLC, Create sentiment.  The coffee grinder paper is also from TLC, Create.

Two great cards! The image of your first card is such a sweet one, and the colors of the image and papers are lovely together. Your second card is fun, with the perfectly paired image and sentiment.

Wonderful cards, Lisa Lynn! I used Mo's image for an anniversary card for my husband this year. Glad us in Mo's Challenge.

I have a set of clear Christmas stamps from Inkadinkado that I'm giving away to a random commenter on my blog. No strings attached, but I'd love it if you'd follow me!
