Think Pink!

I was in a very pink mood this morning.  Pink because I found out yesterday that my son and his wife are expecting my first grandchild...and, it's a girl!  Yay!  As a little background on me, I am the mother of 4 children and ALL of them are sons.  I love having sons...but...finally I can enjoy a baby girl after 25 years, and I don't even have to be pregnant this time. :)  And in reference to one of the comments on here....YES!  I am definately old enough to be a grandma.  But, I love you for not thinking I look my age.  I alas, turned 47 last month and other than that whole adult children thing, I am in a bit of denial myself.

Since I was in a pink mood, I decided to create a card to give them this weekend when I go over and surprise them with a little something I know I am going to get tempted to buy as soon as I enter any baby department.  What it will be, I have no idea.  But I can guarantee it will be pink!


This card was stamped with a design I created a few years ago named Sweet Sarah Anne.  The company was named, "The Merry Stamper" and is still available for purchase from I Brake For Stamps.   She has other outfits too: a flowergirl, Valentines girl, cowgirl and an angel.  Underneath her babydoll outfit she has on a cute little bloomers outfit.  It was a lot of fun to create, and I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you.  I have noticed that many of the companies I designed for have sold their designs to other companies, such as the one listed above.  I am starting to think it would be nice to get in touch with these companies again and see if they would still like some of my artwork.  In the meantime, as I showcase my creations, I will try to include their links as well.

I still have more flower tutorials coming up.  Just waiting for the right inspiration to hit me on how I will present them to you.

Thank you everyone for all your positive comments.  I will try to answer the questions that are asked within my posts, but please feel free to email me at shelldian@hotmail.com if you have any questions.
