Ten little fingers and ten little toes

Hello again,
Have you had a good day?
It occurred to me this morning when I heard that my best friend had become a Grandmother for the second time in a month, that I had never shared the Birth Announcement and Thank you cards that I made for Becki on the birth of my own new Granddaughter Emma, back in July.
Where on earth have those 3 months gone to?
I love this photo from the early days, it is one of my favourites.
I created the cards out of some background papers from my stash,
and a lovely rocking horse die that was part of one of the Christmas Limited Edition DooHickey Die Club.
With a little bit of careful planning (some would call it OCD) I managed to use both the die cut and the piece of paper that it was cut from.
I made a small announcement card to go inside each one as a little bit of a keepsake. They were made using the magic stamp of Emma's hand and foot print.
The inside of the Thank You card was also personalised using her footprint.
This photo was taken the day she came home from the hospital and it really is a little bit of deja vu.
Emma is sleeping in the moses basket that my parents bought me for Becki over 30 years ago!!
Emma was able to sleep in it straight away, unlike her Mum who spent her first night at home sleeping in a drawer because I had no bedding for the moses basket.
Still it doesn't seem to have done her any harm, and she could still sleep for England given half the chance.
Let's hope that they all get a good nights sleep tonight, especially the very new Mum and Dad.
