Welcome Baby Grandson!

Hi Friends, Well, it happened! My daughter blessed us with a grandson this past weekend, 3 weeks early. And he is so SWEET. Pictures to come. His arrival inspired me to make this card following the Mojo Monday Sketch 336. I saw this Penny Black stamp sitting on my shelf and I always wanted to color it with Prismas on Kraft. So I dusted them off and colored this up! It's my one and only Hedgehog Stamp and he's so cute.
I used some older K&Co gingham paper, PTI Blue, Yellow and Kraft Card stock, an older prima flower, Swiss Dots EF, button and twine. The sentiment is Hero Arts stamped in Memento Danube Blue ink. I kept it pretty simple for mailing. It was fun to color with Prisma pencils again. No OMS were used, just blending with the pencils themselves.

Thanks for visiting today! I'm still on cloud nine about my new baby grandbaby. :)
