Fan card for swap and some really cool news!

I was in a fan card swap. The template is at Mirkwood Designs, along with some other really great templates. This card was so much fun to make. I have a bawdy card that I'm making, but I tried dying feathers red instead of buying red feathers and it didn't work out very well. As soon as I get some red feathers, I'll finish the fan card I plan to keep and will post a picture. This was so much fun. I was surprised by how easy it was and how quickly the ideas for the theme came.

And now the really cool news. Since I told my mom, I think it's safe for me to post on the blog. I'm going to be a grandmother! My oldest (my only girl) found out on Saturday that she's pregnant. If my calculations are correct, about mid-April, I will be a grandma. My mom is a bit shocked. Angela is, after all, her oldest grandchild and that lucky woman was the recipient of the "grandma" title at ripe old age of 39. I was a very young mom. Anyway, it seems unreal that my oldest is 23 and even more unreal that she is going to be a mom, but she is happy, so I'm happy. Plus I get a great new baby to play with, and this one I can give back! Expect to see some baby blankets and stuff on the blog right around December, when she can find out the gender. If she finds out.

So that's my excitement this week. I think that's enough to hold me for awhile.
