I'm a great 'Great Great Aunt!!

Good morning blogland, surprise surprise it has just stopped raining and I can see the chink of a big yellow thing in the sky! Can't remember what its called.
It's official now I am a 'Great Great Aunt' so I thought I had better make a special card to celebrate this event. Those that know me will know I'm desperate to become a Grandma and now my husbands younger sister has become a Great Grandma!!  Baby Kayden (yes that's how his mother is spelling it!) weighed in at 7lb 12oz a few days ago, I have yet to meet him.
I love White on White cards I think they are perfect for baby or weddings and I hope to make a few for Christmas this year too.
This card includes all my favourite ingredients, WOW, Magnolia image, feathers, Doo Hickey swirl die and my swiss dots embossing folder. I've just realised while I'm typing this I forgot to add any shading under the image so I'm now going to do that but I don't have time to re take the photo!
I added the baby's name a la Pinky (nobody does that better than her!) and hopefully I haven't put too much on, it's very difficult to know when to stop with embellishments!!

Thank you all for taking the time to visit my blog, don't forget to enter my Birthday candy, you have until the end of the month. I'd like to thank all those that have left comments wishing me a happy birthday and welcome my new followers, I will get around to visiting you, August is a manic month at work for us.
I hope you all have a great and dry weekend

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

Lovely Laurie!
I love your WOW cards and I'm just sucking in your talent at this, because this is way over my crafting skills! Never done a WOW card and I think I will have big problems with it! But you did it (as usual!) to perfection
Love the way you put the name!
Enjoy the sun and don't work to hard :)
Have a great weekend
Love, Jill
