Sweet Baby

When my kids were very little, I had a young nanny named Brandy who came in every day while I went to work. We grew to love her, and were heartbroken when she had to leave us. That was 10 years ago, and we've kept in touch with her and her family. This past Mother's Day, Brandy had a baby girl and they named her Sage.  We got to meet little Sage today, so of course I made her a card:

The center panel is popped up on 3D dots.  I tried to get a better pic, but they all look like the center piece is hanging over the edge of the card, but IRL it doesn't. I just bugs me on the picture.

Inside is a pop-up gift card. The big blur at the bottom is because I wrote in the card before I took a picture of it, and that is the extent of my Photoshop skills :)

Little Sage is a beautiful baby, and she smelled so good!  Almost made me want another one. I know first hand that Brandy will be a great Mom, Sage is a lucky little girl.  Don't you just love it when nice things happen to nice people? And to have a baby on Mother's Day makes it extra special, don't you think?

For this card I used up some of my hoarded paper stash that has been long retired.

Thanks for popping by!


  1. GORGEOUS Card, Lorrinda. I was just looking at that paper this afternoon. We haven't seen anything with purple in it for a while!


Aren't YOU sweet! Thank you for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it!
