Last night, I experienced the positive power of social media. I got a text from a friend I hadn't heard from in almost 20 years. A few years older than me, she lived with my family one year when she went to business school. I was shocked and happy to hear from her. But probably not more shocked than when she ended the conversation telling me is about to become a grandmother! It just doesn't seem possible. Are we really in that generation already?
So...today's card All Things Thanks card is dedicated to my friend, Debi and her new grandbaby.
Base: Petal Pink, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"

There's a new baby on our street! I got to meet him at about 10 pm last night as he and his parents were walking home from visiting his grandparents, who also live just a few doors down from me in the opposite direction. He's absolutely beautiful. But he's three weeks early, so I was caught off guard with my new baby crafting I had planned.
This #CraftySaturday Card-in-a-Bag takes no more than 20 minutes from start to finish. The bag uses 2, 12" x 12" sheets of matching Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper. So, break into your stash and start crafting.
Hmmmm...now that I have the card and the bag, I guess that means I need to go shopping to find something to put in it!

Peek-a-boo to someone new! Isn't that a great sentiment for a new baby? And this little monster from the Yummy in my Tummy stamp set, is just the cutest. His round little tummy makes a fun shaker window, with just enough room for heart shaped confetti punched with the Confetti Heart Punch. He's going to be perfect to send to my friend, who's anticipating her first baby any day now.
