Finally a card!! But if you want to see the baby scroll up:) or go to Newer Post

I am posting this card without a lot of fanfare because the guy is coming to measure our room for carpet and then baby is coming to visit Nanny and Poppy tonight! I am so excited to see him. They change almost daily!

I will be putting this in some challenges but not until tomorrow. I just thought you guys might actually like to see a project since it has been so long. I hope you like it.  Hugs, Pam

I used Birthday Bash for the card base and the little birthday Hippo!  I'll back later with more details and the list of challenges. A huge hug and big thank you to all of you for looking and commenting. I appreciate every  single one of you:) You all bring so much joy to my life. Next up the challenges:)  Hugs, Pam

  1. Ahhh, this is sooo absolutely adorable, Pam! I love the spotted hippo with the googly eyes! Sooo cute! And the embossing is perfect! What a fun, fabulous card - I LOVE it!!

  2. Such a cute card!

    I scrolled down and your grandson is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I can't wait to be a grandma one of these days. My kids just need to get busy!!!!

    I love that his grandfather's name is Poppy. That's what I grew up calling my grandpa (it was Memaw and Poppy) and I think that's what our grandkids may one day call their grandfather!!!

  14. Hey Pam!

    Thank you for such a sweet comment you left. I just read your last two post...OMG! Congrats! What a beautiful little grandbaby! Is there anything better in life than holding a brand new baby? Oh you are so fortunate! {{big hugs}}

    I have the spine eating thing going too so I can relate so much to what you're saying. I have tried the memory foam bed which did help a little but they hold so much heat I would get too hot. It's always something isn't it? I'm happy to hear your room is coming along well, it will be nice for you and your hubby to be together again!

    Lastly, about BB. I thought I was going to have a heart attack after the live show last Thursday! I was so heartbroken by how upset Jordon was and then for Shelly to go after her...ugh. The house is so boring now. No laughing. You know me, I love to laugh! It will be interesting to see Jeff and Shelly in the jury house though. Have a great day Pam! I'm off to the Minnesota state fair today, got my scooter ready so people better look out! lol!
