Welcome Baby Lila Grace!

I can't believe I'm posting two days in a row - yay for me! 

One of the fabulous Hero Arts designers, Jennifer McGuire, had a new baby girl on Mother's Day - congrats Jennifer and family!!  A friend of hers, Jana Millen, organized an online card gallery to welcome Lila Grace and I finally had a chance to contribute something.  I've met Jennifer at several ScrapFests (hosted annually by Archiver's) where she's done some delightful classes along with the amazing Shari Carroll.  I've also taken quite a few of Jennifer's Online Card Classes.  What a talented woman - I could go on forever...

Here's my card:
Baby Lila
I used Hero Arts layering paper for the card base, stamped with the Chevron Background, a Hero Arts/Studio Calico collaboration, with HA's bubblegum mid-tone ink.  This is a new stamp for me and I just loooove it!  Lila's name is stamped with Hero Art's Fancy Letters and the sentiment is from Find Joy.   The butterfly is Soft Wings from Penny Black; I stamped it with the custom stamp pad I made during Tim Holtz' Creative Chemistry 101 class. 

So, welcome Lila Grace!  May you have a long and wonderful life!!

Hope you're having a fun and crafty weekend - thanks for stopping by!
