Baby Eva is Here!.......

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to my blog after almost 3 weeks......can't believe I haven't had time to blog for so long, but life has been very, very busy here.
Firstly, I'd like to you to see the main change in our family, and indeed our whole lives.....this adorable, gorgeous, beautiful little girl who was born on 15th April 2013....our first grandchild!
Thank you Nick and Emma xxxx

 Eva Louise
( Isn't she just fabulous ? )
As well as Eva arriving, Alan has been working in South Africa, I have been helping in Adam's shop, and I even managed to squeeze a brilliant day in, at Ally Pally with some great crafty friends ....Phew, it's been all go, go, go!
Today I'm showing a card made in celebration of our lovely little grandaughter, hope you like it....
It's part of a blog hop from Crafting Cafe with the theme of CELEBRATION.....more details below.




All cardstock is from Papermill




This is a Lili of the Valley stamp, 
one of my favourite baby images.




The image tag is from Sizzix, the butterflies are from Marianne & Cheery Lynn, and all the rest are Spellbinders.





Loads of lace and feathers and liquid pearls.....Oh and it's an easel card, in case you hadn't noticed.....should have taken a side view but I forgot, sorry.

Now if you're following the blog hop, here is the list of contributors....

5.Barbara - (that's me) - http://glitterarti1.blogspot.com .....

Well, I hope you enjoy the 'hop' and have a good weekend too, apologies for this long post....I'll be back in a couple of days with something new. In the meantime, I'll just leave you with a couple of more photos...oh heck, I'm going to be one of those boring grandma's ;-)






Proud mam and dad xx
