Joy! And Some REALLY JOYFUL News...

Hello friends~  I'm popping in with another card to enter in Darnell's 12th NBUS Challenge

 I picked up this cute image from Santoro London Gorjuss  designs when I went to the Stamp / Scrapbook Expo in Mass. a few weeks ago.  Her name is Holly.  Isn't she cute?
 They had all kinds of sweet designs but by the time I got to shop, she was the only one left so when I got home I looked them up online and found so many cute images and they're lesss than $2.50 at  

I made a tag to go along with the card.   The die cut "JOY" is from PTI.

I'll also be entering this card into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

There's still time to play along with Darnell's challenge.  You can find all the details here.

Oh and if you can stay a little longer, I have some really JOYFUL news to share.  Our daughter and Son-in-law just shared with us last night that they are expecting a baby in May 2018!!  I can't even begin to express the joy, excitement and love that I feel toward this tiny little peanut.  

I wish I could share the video that my son-in-law took  of my hubby and I while we opened the brown paper package tied up with string.  It truly is my favorite thing!!  Let's just say that there were many tears of joy and it took me hours to fall asleep last night from the excitement.  I'm pretty sure I fell asleep and woke up wearing the same smile.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  2. Oh, Birgit, your happy news stole the show today!! What paper creations?! I'm am so thrilled and happy for all of you! Everyone will tell you - and it's true - that grandchildren are the BEST! Goodness, I'm grinning all over my face, too!! Okay, so settle down, Darnell! Your card and tag are absolutely adorable! IN FACT, I'm thinking you should just start a drawer of these darling cards and tags for baby Swan!! Thank you for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #12! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Such Joy cannot be matched, my friend! SO very happy for you and your husband!!! Congratulations to the entire family - and especially to the proud parents-to-be... this little peanut is such a darling already!
    Was there a card? YES and a darling one at that - and a tag to boot!!!
    biggest hugs...

  4. Congratulations, Birgit. That is such exciting news. So happy for you. Your cards and tag are so adorable.

  5. I have to say, I cried when I read your announcement. So happy for all of you! Please keep us posted as the time goes by. I am thrilled too, because now you've joined the grandma club. It's the best time of life! Oh and your darling card and tag is adorable! Love all the pattern behind the sweet pigtailed girl. Baby Swan... love it!

  6. Such super news Birgit, congratulations! You will be able to compare notes with Donna :-)
    Gorgeous card and tag too!

  7. Congratulations, Grandma (or whatever you choose to be called). There's nothing like it in the world.

  8. What a life changing event for you, having a grand baby. Take lots of photos both along the way and after the birth so you can make a much cherished scrapbook for the new one. Congratulations! Your card and tag are so cute. (my nephew was expected on Cinco de Mayo and my brother kept telling my parents they were going to name the baby either Rita or Nacho, jokingly thank goodness. He ended up having a Star Wars baby -- May the 4th be with you-- Ronan was born on May 4).

  9. Holly is just too cute, I love her dress, love the double tag too, Congrats again on the new baby news!!

  10. Holly is just precious but your news definitely is the best part of your post. What wonderful news! Congrats to you and hubby and to the soon to be proud parents! There are going to be so many wonderful times ahead!

  11. Projects...CUTE but I'm moving on to the main event!!! CONGRATULATIONS, CONGRATULATIONS, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Didn't you just mention to me recently that you couldn't wait for a grandchild??!! The joy you will feel is like no other. I couldn't be happier for you and your family!!


Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me some love! I appreciate that you took the time to stop in and leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and I appreciate you!
