Welcome Lucas Wade New Baby Card for Creative Ladybirds Challenge Blog

It's a new month which means it's a new challenge at Creative Ladybirds Creations 
where it's always "anything goes" with some fabulous sponsors 

Our 2 fabulous sponsors are:

I normally get over-zealous and create two (2) projects but the month of June was one bad month where my boyfriend had surgery and then the following week, I had to go into the hospital for surgery!!!! 

Now, on a much brighter note, my beautiful step-daughter, Jean, gave birth on June 12th at 8:08 AM to a beautiful healthy baby boy which makes me the very proud grandmother of 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters ages 10 and under!!!!!
Say hello to Lucas Wade weighing in at a super healthy birth weight of 9 pounds 6 ounces and 22.5 inches long!!!!

 My card using Ikes Art New Baby was made just for this occasion to present along with but of course, a quilt for my new grandson! 

  • size A2 card using Recollection cardstock and background papers are from my "stash" 
  • New Baby was colored using Copic Markers fussy cut around the edges, gel pen accents and puff-dotted onto my card 
  • blue gingham ribbon wrapped around the one layer of background and tied in a bow with a blue diaper pin
  • spelled out his name with alphabet beads reminiscent of the baby bracelets with our name when we were born
  • sentiment, "May the laughter and cries of your New baby be music to your ears" was from June Mega Club from Create with TLC mounted on scrap papers and chalked around the edges with rounded corners 

On a final note . . .  check out my little frog quilt for Lucas where when I was doing the machine quilting, I even made hearts and spelled out his name in the quilting:
