You're the best! (Thank you card)

Current pics of my cutie patootie granddaughters (we were celebrating a family birthday)

Riley Ann (age 3)

Addyson Ann (21 months - Kelly's baby!)

Tucker Lynn (almost 5 months)

Riley and Tucker are sisters and I'm not sure how Jakob (age 4) eluded the camera but he did!

I'd also like to give a little shout out to my daughter Kelly, it's her birthday and we just got back from having a yummy Mexican dinner to celebrate her BIG 30. My baby turned 30, can you tell me, where did the time go? I will return, I'm going to grab some tissue.... I have returned.... I am composed.... I will survive!

Welcome to my Delightful friends and family! Here is a little card of thanks for all of you leaving such sweet comments! I'm having a blast with some of these challenges and today I'm playing along with the Spotted Chick (TKT#49) so I snuck in a bit of kraft card stock using my Martha Stewart picket fence punch. I'm also playing along with By LORi Designs Color Challenge #10

  1. Oh my goodness Natalie, I just love your card! The fence is a fantastic touch with those wonderful flowers. I just love the whole layout of this-so creative! Great papers and your coloring of the BLD image is super! Thanks for joining us at By LORi Designs!

  2. The card is adorable, just as sweet as it can be. However, your little grandbabies are adorabler (is that a word?). I would think you're in shock with your daughter turning 30. Mine turns 27 soon and starting to feel the shock slowly setting in.

    The babies are seriously sweet. Thanks so much for sharing.
