Babies' Babies! PPA237, PP228





This baby card is headed overseas to welcome a sweet baby girl born this week!  Her grandma is one of my best friends and I visited her dad the day after he was born!  That's how it goes these days - my baby cards are sent to the babies of my friends' babies!  If you are close to my age you understood that sentence perfectly!

The sketch at Pals Paper Arts worked perfectly to focus on the sentiment - which happens to be the challenge at the Paper Players this week!  The sentiment is from Celebrate Baby and Hello Honey was swiped and wiped from that marvelous new DSP called Irresistibly Yours to highlight the stars.
