Love 'Notes"

Today I have a different sort of a masculine card from my 'norm'
....a bit of a 'love one!

For this card I used one of the very newly released dies from
Tutti Designs 'Saxophone'.

Very clean and simple with a stitched black star behind
and a glittery saxophone.....
tiny read hearts coming out of the horn and
a perfect stamped image for a sweetheart of a man!!

On another 'note' (teehee)
this is where I spent  all day yesterday in the hospital
with my daughter and granddaughter waiting patiently
for this little sweet heart to arrive...
we left the house around 3:30 am and I
returned around 7pm...lets just say it was a
tense day as things didn't go as planned,
as my granddaughter Ally was high risk...
but in the end we were blessed with this little

Image may contain: 1 person

Meet Malaika  (pronounced malika and means 'angel' in Swahili (spelling?) )
born at 2:25pm (C section in the end)
weighing 8#'s 6oz and 19" long.....the sweetest baby...
and making me once again a great granny!!
(look at those chubby cheeks..oh my!!)
